Apple iMac 21.5-Inch With 4K Retina Display (2017)

 

Design unchanged, the latest 21.5-inch Apple iMac with 4K Retina display packs an updated CPU, Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, VR-ready graphics, and a brighter display. Despite these minor updates, it's the midrange all-in-one to beat.

Bright DCI-P3 4K screen. Can drive 4K or 5K external displays. Discrete graphics. Hybrid SSD/HDD Fusion Drive. USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 ports. Wireless keyboard and mouse included.

Shallow keyboard. Ports and SD card slot are on back panel. Lacks HDMI-in and DisplayPort-in connectors.

While the 27-inch iMac is more vulnerable to competition from Windows AIOs, the Apple iMac 21.5-inch with 4K Retina display is in a safer zone, at least for now. Windows systems like the $4,199 Surface Studio and $2,799 Dell XPS 27 are admittedly...

Review: Apple's 21.5" iMac with Retina 4K display gets solid 2017 architectural refresh

 

Apple has radically overhauled its iMac lineup for 2017, giving its 21.5 inch Retina 4K models dedicated graphics driven by AMD Radeon Pro 555/560 GPUs; a brighter display with enhanced P3 color; more powerful Intel Kaby Lake CPUs; upgradable RAM...

The latest Kaby Lake iMacs deliver strong refinements to Apple's most popular desktop Mac line. Later this year, Apple will introduce at even higher end iMac Pro that goes even further, albeit at a premium price, starting at $5000.

Apple iMac 21.5” Review

 

Haswell-powered performance and a vivid display make this an attractive, if somewhat pricey, all-in-one option.

Stunning design ; Bright, vivid display ; Strong Haswell performance ; Extensive app suite ; Welcome OS X Mavericks improvements

Somewhat cramped keyboard ; Hard-to-reach ports ; A little pricey

Apple's refreshed 21.5-inch iMac benefits from Haswell power and a sleeker-than-ever design.

iMac 21.5-inch 4K (2017)

Apple 21.5in iMac with Retina 4K display (2017) review

 

The screen's the dream

Fantastic display combines resolution and colour refinement ; Dedicated graphics a welcome step up from last year ; Baby Lake CPUs bring the power

No Target Display mode to use that stunning screen with other kit ; Screen only has tilt, I guess?

Great product, well designed
