Apple iMac MD096

 

Yes, for better or for worse, those other PCs have Windows 8. They also have touch screens and optical drives, features that Apple has deemed inessential for a desktop. You might agree with Apple. You might also accept Apple's hallmark design...

Apple's attention to detail extends to the 21.5-inch version of its thin-looking Apple iMac .

Windows-based all-in-one PCs offer tough hardware competition in the sub-$1,400 price range.

The 21.5-inch iMac will be a compelling lower-cost all-in-one for Mac loyalists, but you can get more capabilities from similarly priced Windows all-in-ones.

Apple iMac review (2012)

 

Better, faster, stronger. The new iMac claims to be better in all the ways you'd expect a refreshed product to be better: it steps up to Ivy Bridge,

Stunning, low-glare display ; Fast performance ; Slim design ; Robust audio

No optical drive

The iMac remains the best all-in-one on the market, with a gorgeous, low-glare display, fast speeds, strong audio and robust graphics performance.

Apple iMac and Mac mini review (late 2012)

 

As soon as it was unveiled on stage in October, I started looking forward to getting the new iMac in for review. See, my main machine is a 13-inch MacBook Air, which I mostly love. But sometimes I...

Gorgeous display ; Slim, light design ; Powerful performance

No optical drive ; Speakers are worse than previous model

Still the best all-in-one device out there, but the door is open for Windows 8

Apple iMac 27-inch (2012) - Pocket-lint

 

It's big, it's powerful, it gets the job done

Big screen, thin design, fast, looks good, Fusion drive

Not very portable

While we had reservations about the 21.5-inch in the workplace, the 27-inch model offers enough beef to dispel those fears. It's a big, powerful, and thoroughly enjoyable machine to use and one with which you won't be disappointed.

Apple iMac (late 2012)

 

Say hello to the new look iMac, half desktop computer, half....iPad? That's right: the skinned down all in one machine is just as thick as the original iPad on the sides, but it still packs in more bleeding edge kit than ever before. Coming in 27 and...

The new Apple iMac is even more powerful, and even more beautiful: if you’re after an all in one it really is the best money can buy. Of course, the only thing to consider is if you really need an all-in-one. These days, tablets and laptops are...

Fast, Great design, and Super easy to work with!

 

This computer is honestly, one of the best that I have ever had. When I saw it for the first time, I was like: "Wow!" -- I had to buy it. But then I looked at the price, and I thought it was a little bit too much. But, after hearing so many good...
