Apple iMac (24-inch) M1 review: Seeing is believing

 

Reinvented as the iMac for a new generation. It has to be seen in person to truly appreciate its design.

Eye-popping screen ; Speakers sound amazing ; Webcam is excellent ; M1 performance still surprises ; Lots of fun color options ; Touch ID built into keyboard

Lame port selection ; The Magic Mouse is still annoying

APPLE IMAC M1 REVIEW: THE ALL-IN-ONE FOR ALMOST EVERYONE

 

This is an iMac unlike any other iMac we've seen before, and it all comes down to the M1 chip. Sure, there are some other differences between this 24-inch iMac and the 21.5-inch model from 2019 that it's replacing. There are better microphones and...

Great processor Fun colors and sleek design The webcam is actually good

Limited port selection Not the best value for its price Can’t upgrade anything after purchase

In short, this device costs money. And it’s true that you’d get similar performance and save a few hundred bucks, if you just plugged a Mac Mini into an external display. But this iMac has almost everything that most people need in one package:...

Apple iMac 24-Inch Review

 

The original Apple iMac, launched at the end of the last millennium, is the archetype for the modern all-in-one desktop computer. The most recognizable of all Mac desktops, its luster nevertheless diminished over the past two decades as it became less...

A perky reimagining of the classic iMac design Color-matched accessories Extraordinarily thin Available fingerprint reader Snappy Apple M1 processor Excellent camera quality

Expensive as configured, and for screen size Requires external power brick Uncomfortable keyboard No touch input on screen Limited port selection

The first major iMac redesign in years turns Apple's classic computer into a gorgeous all-in-one with the M1 processor, multiple color options, and a stunningly thin exterior. It’s neither the most powerful nor the most versatile Mac desktop, but it’s...

Apple iMac 24-inch M1 review

 

The new iMac M1 is quite possibly the greatest generational leap forward in iMac history - it's simply superb

Gorgeous design ; Stunning performance ; Sublime screen

Only 16GB RAM, but not a deal-breaker ; 24 inches limiting for some editing ; M1 SoC locks out upgrade/repair

Given the ground-breaking performance and efficiency gains of Apple’s M1 SoC in the MacBook and Mac Mini, it was always going to be a dead cert that any iMac powered by this hardware was going to be a stellar performer. The fact that Apple has also...

Apple M1 iMac 24-inch review

 

The first M1 iMac is an exercise in experience over performance.

Innovative design ; Brilliant display ; Reasonable price

No height adjustment ; Not the best value for performance

The 24-inch iMac is the perfect example of a midrange PC that anyone can use. It’s powerful enough to keep up with a family’s worth of needs, but it’s stylish enough to put in your living room, and its 4.5K retina display will please artists with its...

Apple iMac 2021 review (24-inch)

 

The new Apple iMac 2021 (24-inch) is a breath of fresh air for the aging iMac line, arriving with a beautiful display, an excellent webcam and an array of bright new color schemes. These virtues seem especially welcome at a time when many of us have...

Gorgeous display Great 1080p webcam Speakers deliver rich, vibrant audio M1 chip offers speedy performance

No vertical height adjustment Entry-level model lacks features Ports on the back

Apple's new M1-equipped 24-inch iMac is a slender-yet-speedy machine packing great speakers, an excellent webcam and a beautiful screen.

Apple iMac M1 review: We get hands-on with Apple's stunning new computer

 

In this iMac M1 review we look at the Apple-made processor that's fast and sleek, but question its limitations for creatives.

Excellent 4.5K display ; Powerful, quiet M1 processor ; Extremely fast internal storage

GPU weak for a desktop ; Limited connection types ; 8-core and 16GB max specs

The iMac 24-inch (M1, 2021) is an easy way to get a fantastic pro-level screen and more than enough power for amateur or light-to-mid creative work. But its specs are limited at a certain point, especially the GPU, so it will only be suitable for some...

24-inch iMac (2021) Review: Apple's all-in-one desktop is back

 

If you're looking for a powerful, stunning-looking desktop, there really isn't anything else out there like the new iMac (2021).

Stunning design ; M1 features ample power ; Webcam is stellar

No discrete GPU option ; Some accessories not included with base level ; White bezels are distracting

For the average person looking for a powerful, stunning-looking desktop that easily blends in with their home decor and isn't an RGB-filled black, rectangular box, there really isn't anything else out there like the new iMac (2021)

Apple 24-inch M1 iMac review

 

Last September we concluded our 27-inch iMac review thusly, “The big open question mark here is what the future looks like for the iMac — and how long we'll have to wait to see it. That is, of course, the perennial question for hardware upgrades, but...

The M1 iMac Has a Pop of Color and a Camera That Does the Lord's Work

 

The new iMac harkens back to iMacs of old with a colorful design and white bezels, but makes it fresh with the latest processor.

Beautiful color; portability; solid performance; incredible 1080p front-facing camera
