Apple iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2015) review


No Retina, no cry

Solid build quality ; Slick design ; Rechardable accessories ; Decent speakers

Jagged, 1080p display fonts ; Fusion Drive not standard ; Awkward port location ; No height adjustment

Despite lacking a high-resolution display, Apple's remains an attractive and highly usable computer. Just remember to upgrade to a Fusion Drive to improve boot and loading times.

Review: Apple iMac 21.5in (2015)


Apple updates its smaller-sized iMac with an optional 4K screen, but beware the entry-level model.

Adding a Fusion Drive ups the price to $2,459, but it’s a very capable all-in-one PC package.

Fast, simple, compact


I bought this as a replacement for for my 10 year old Mac. I am amazed at the improvement. It is enormously faster than its predecessor. I takes up half the space on my desk that the old one did. The screen is much larger and clearer. I spent twice as...

Works as promised, wish it still had the built in DVD but the USB one works fine. The only complaint is the cost but what can you expect with Apple.

first Apple


Very simple to set up. I had one glitch a month after with a firmware/software update, but called Apple and they walked me through it. For what I use this desktop for it works very well for me. I'm glad I made the switch to a Mac.
