Apple iMac 27-inch (Core i7)

 

Apple puts an Intel Core i7 into its huge 27-inch iMac desktop. It's power and beauty all rolled into one.

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 iMac (27-inch/Core i7) All-in-One PC Desktop Review

 

Simply the fastest all-in-one PC we've seen ; Beautiful big 27-inch display

Lacks extras: Multi-touch, Blu-ray, TV tuner, etc ; Pricey

Fastest all-in-one PC we've seen runs Windows and OS X, and has a huge screen…but lacks extras like mulit-touch, Blu-ray, and a TV tuner.

Review: Apple 27-Inch iMac

 

With a stupid-large, superbright display and a blazingly fast quad-core processor, the 27-inch iMac is an envy-inspiring desktop all-in-one computer.

Did we mention the screen? Sexpot good looks. Core i7 processor is fast enough for the autobahn, and quad-core technology means you get support for next year’s apps today

All-glass front enclosure throws off enough glare to give you a tan. Screen is too big for anyone under 6-foot-2, unless they’re sitting on a phone book. Speakers have too much low-end. You’re better off hooking up some sleek Harman Kardons or, better...

Apple iMac 27-inch (Core 2 Duo)

 

The Apple iMac 27-inch (Core 2 Duo) grows a few inches wider and gains a Mini DisplayPort, but does it offer enough to compete with the new Windows 7 multitouch systems?

Continues design dominance. Wireless keyboard. Wireless Magic Mouse. Mini DisplayPort input. Better screen resolution than a 1080p HDTV. EPEAT Gold and Energy Star 5.0.

Card reader is SD-only. No eSATA. Requires third-party adapter for HDMI or DVI input. No Blu-ray option. ; Watch our Apple iMac 27-inch (Core 2 Duo) video review!

Apple's 27-inch iMac review

 

It's the biggest all-in-one Apple have ever offered, not to mention the fastest and most media-centric, and it's pretty much guaranteed to hypnotize anybody

Apple 27-inch 3.06GHz iMac review

 

The 27in screen has a huge 2,560x1,440 pixels. This is roughly equivalent to four 13.3in MacBook displays stuck together. The screen has a glass finish that reflects light from overhead sources, causing distracting glare. It's very bright, though -...

Apple's latest iMac is desirable, but it's neither an entertainment all-rounder nor a true powerhouse.

Apple iMac review (21.5-inch, 27-inch)

 

The new Apple iMac design lends itself more towards use as central part of a home entertainment centre, as well as boasting top-end performance. [Updated with Quad-Core i5 and i7 speed tests, November 20, 2009]

Apple's flagship iMac comes in a variety of flavours and two sizes, with the £1,349 model we've been using being the sweet spot. It offers the most value for the price and could spur desktop sales. In recent years, more and more Mac buyers have opted...

Apple iMac 27-inch (autumn 2009 model)

 

Put one of Apple's new 27-inch Core i7 iMacs on your desk, and you run the risk of alienating yourself from your friends, co-workers and loved ones. Sure, the sheer speed of the thing is amazing -- the new Core i7 processor is outrageously fast -- but...

Did we mention the screen? Sexpot good looks. Core i7 processor is ludicrously fast, and quad-core technology means you get support for next year's apps today

All-glass front enclosure is highly reflective. Screen is too big for anyone under six feet tall, unless they're sitting on a phone book. Speakers are heavy on the low-end

Apple iMac 27-inch (Core 2 Duo 3.06GHz)

 

Behind its expansive display, Apple has packed one of the fastest all-in-ones available, and added a few useful extras to sweeten the deal.

Largest display among all-in-ones, Fast dual-core CPU makes up for lack of quad-core (mostly), Finally has an SD card slot, Wireless mouse and keyboard, Mini DisplayPort input ripe with possibility

Most Windows all-in-ones in the price range have Blu-ray, Touch-sensitive mouse gestures not as responsive as we'd like, Apple's expensive customer service policy

Apple's new 27-inch iMac will charm plenty of you with its screen size alone. Fortunately that won't lead you astray. Behind its expansive display, Apple has packed one of the fastest all-in-ones available, and added a few useful extras to sweeten the...
