Apple iMac review (2013)

 

This is an "s" year for Apple, and no, we're not just talking about the iPhone. In addition to announcing the iPhone 5s, the company refreshed its

Stunning, low-glare display ; Improved graphics performance, disk speeds ; Attractive design ; Robust audio

No optical drive

The iMac remains our favorite all-in-one desktop, and returns this year with beefier graphics, faster WiFi and brisker disk speeds.

Apple iMac 27-inch (Intel Core i5-4670)

 

Though it's mainly a speed bump, the inclusion of the latest 4th-generation Intel Core i5 quad-core processor and Nvidia GeForce GTX 775M Kepler graphics bump the Apple iMac 27-inch (Intel Core i5-4670) back to the top spot on our high-end all-in-one...

Fusion Drive is SSD+HDD, but smart. Stunningly thin design. Impressive low-glare display. Top-of-the-line processor and graphics card offer best-in-class performance. User serviceable memory slots. Ports include Thunderbolt and USB 3.0. Can work as a...

No Touch Screen. SD card slot in back. No internal upgradability beyond RAM. No height adjustment. Requires adapter for HDMI

Though it's mainly a speed bump, the inclusion of the latest 4th-generation Intel Core i5 quad-core processor and Nvidia GeForce GTX 775M Kepler graphics made a world of difference for the Apple iMac 27-inch (Intel Core i5-4670) ($2,199 as tested). The...

Apple iMac 2013

 

That's because the updates are internal, putting new hardware inside an iMac body that received a major makeover in 2012. From the outside, this is the same slim screen sitting on top of an aluminum stand and minimalist base. The design was...

With the addition of Intel's Haswell chips, plus 802.11ac wireless, faster SSD hard drives, and new Nvidia GPUs, the latest Apple iMac is a thoroughly up-to-date desktop.

Other big-screen all-in-one systems have handy extras missing here, such as touch screens and HDMI inputs.

Anyone who bought last year's redesigned iMac doesn't need to upgrade, but for owners of older models or anyone looking to switch, the latest 27-inch Apple iMac offers a wide-ranging set of internal upgrades.

Apple iMac (27-inch, September 2013) review:

 

It's telling that the latest set of updates to Apple's iMac all-in-one desktop were not announced at one of the company's regular stage shows. Instead, the new iMac slipped quietly into Apple's Web site, the news announced via an understated press...

Apple iMac 27-inch (Nvidia GeForce GTX 675M)

 

With a memory bump, the Apple iMac 27-inch (Nvidia GeForce GTX 675M) shows that it is still capable of running with the big dogs. It's the highest performance Mac we've seen, for now.

Stunningly thin design. Impressive low-glare display. Top-of-the-line processor and graphics card offer best-in-class performance. User serviceable memory slots. Ports include Thunderbolt and USB 3.0

Pricey. No internal upgradability. No HDMI-in or out without an adapter. No height adjustment. Needs external Thunderbolt drive for more storage

The Apple iMac 27-inch (Nvidia GeForce GTX 675M) ($3,099 direct) desktop is a powerhouse system for those who need high-octane performance. It can be upgraded to 32GB of memory and a high-end third-generation Intel Core i7 processor. When combined with...

Apple iMac 27-inch (Core i7)

 

Huge display. Quad-core CPU with TurboBoost. Wireless keyboard. Wireless Magic Mouse. Mini DisplayPort input. Better screen resolution than a 1080p HDTV. EPEAT Gold and Energy Star 5.0 certified

Card reader is SD-only. No eSATA. Requires third-party adapter for HDMI or DVI input. No Blu-ray option. No numeric keypad on wireless keyboard

Apple drops a Nehalem-based Core i7 processor in their class-leading iMac 27-inch. It has a fairly hefty price tag, but backs it up with stellar performance and the high-quality design we've come to expect from the fruit company in Cupertino. The iMac...

With the world seemingly so keen to go mobile, it's a pleasant acknowledgement that Apple still feels there is a place for a desktop computer within its

Fast, beautifully designed, graphics power, Fusion Drive is great, thin design and small footprint for a 27-in screen

Not really upgradable, screen could be higher res, can be fiddly to use slots around the back

The 27-inch iMac is available with a 3.2 GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.6 GHz and Nvidia GeForce GTX 755M for a suggested retail price of £1,599. Our review unit would cost an impressive £2,229 thanks to its 3.5 GHz...

Apple iMac 27in (Late 2013) review

 

The latest version of this 27in all-in-one is powerful and stylish but it's no longer without rivals

While Apple and the iMac have for a long time dominated the all-in-one PC market, we've seen an increasing number of powerful Windows PCs. At just over £1,900, this 27in PC is powerful and very capable, but it's almost more expensive than a similarly...
