iMac 5K 27-inch (2020) review: An old dog learns a few new tricks

 

Apple Silicon Macs are coming, which puts the new Intel 5K iMac in a strange position. It may be one of the last of its kind, but is it worth buying anyway?

Better storage and RAM options ; Improved graphics ; Vastly improved performance ; Nano-texture glass is revolutionary ; Speakers and webcam are top notch

Outdated design ; No Apple Silicon

Apple iMac 27-Inch (2020) Review

 

Option for matte "nano-texture" or glossy 5K display ; 1080p camera ; Fast computing and graphics performance ; Stylish, minimalist design

Expensive as configured ; No touch screen ; Uncomfortable keyboard

The 27-inch Apple iMac gains a 1080p webcam, a new matte-finish screen option, and faster CPU and GPU picks. Add all that up, and it remains one of the best big-screen all-in-one computers for the prosumer and work-from-home crowds.

Apple iMac 27-inch (2020) review

 

The 2020 version of the 27-inch iMac looks the same, but has beefier specs, a better webcam and a great screen.

Great display ; Rich-sounding speakers ; Powerful graphics and processor

Thick bezels ; Ports all on back

When the quarantine started, I was glad to have a nice big 27-inch Apple Cinema Display to which I could hook up my work MacBook Pro, so I wasn’t scrunched over a small screen in my home office. Given that we’ll be working from home at least through...

iMac 2020 review

 

Apple's latest 27-inch iMac 2020 is a fantastic all-in-one PC for creative professionals.

Powerful ; Slimline ; Improved webcam ; Configurable

Pricey ; Design hasn't changed

The latest iMac 27-inch (2020) is an ideal all-in-one machine for creatives, combining cutting-edge performance, great new features for working from home, and that iconic design.

27-inch iMac (2020) review

 

The new 27-inch iMac is jaw-dropping in practically every way, not least in price… so is this the ultimate computer for creatives?

Design, build and materials ; The Mac OS and apps ; That eye-popping display

Cost, cost, cost ; Hard/impossible to upgrade later

Apple products divide opinion, and the 27-inch iMac exemplifies the divide between those who resent the brand’s prices, designs, simplifications and restrictions, and those who will willingly pay more to get less. We are not talking about less power...

27-inch iMac 2020 review: The latest Intel iMac leaves a lasting impression

 

The 2020 27-inch iMac is built to be a top performer, with a processing boost, SSD storage, and updated graphics. It has other features to take into consideration, but the emphasis is on speed.

Fast performance ; Nano-texture display greatly reduces reflections and glare ; User-accessible RAM ; Improved FaceTime camera, mics, and speakers

Pricey RAM upgrades at Apple ; Nano-texture display is an expensive upgrade ; SSD not user accessible and can't be upgraded after purchase

This 2020 27-inch iMac with a 3.6GHz 10-core Core i9 CPU is a built-to-order model that's a top performer, with a fast processor, SSD storage, and updated graphics

Apple iMac 27-inch (2020) Review | Trusted Reviews

 

The Apple iMac 27-inch (2020) has seen new processor and SSD upgrades, but is still lacking the previously rumoured redesign

Excellent 5K display;Versatile performance and customisable options;Much improved 1080p webcam;Plenty of ports

A refreshed design would have been nice, especially with a slimmer bezel;Keyboard and mouse aren't the best;8GB base RAM feels a little tight

Apple iMac 27-inch (2020) review: More pro than ever

 

The 2020 iMac is a welcome performance boost over the 2019 version. Every single aspect of this hardware is up to date, more pro than ever before.

Unbelievable levels of power ; Quite configurable ; All SSD for top read/write speeds ; Nano-texture glass for anti-reflection will appeal to pros

Design refresh is still needed ; Bigger screen bezel than many competitors ; Price can escalate steeply with options

Although this 2020 model doesn't bring a redesign, it's a welcome performance boost over the 2019 version. It's more 'pro' than ever. For now Apple's near future is still very much Intel-based - and we see no reason to wait out for Apple Silicon just yet.

Apple 27in iMac (2020) review: More of the same but better

 

As always the new iMac is a sumptuous thing to behold; but the design is beginning to show its age

Elegant design ; Fast performance ; Wonderful display

Expensive ; Thick bezels around screen

With that in mind, and no matter how good the Apple 27in iMac (2020) is, it might be wise to delay spending such a significant sum of money on an Intel-based Mac machine and wait to see what transpires later this year.

iMac Retina 5K (2020) review

 

Apple's latest iMac looks the same as the last one – and every iMac back to 2012. But people always say it's what's on the inside that counts…

Superb display ; Solid performance ; Quiet in use ; 1080p camera

Dated design ; No Face ID ; Miserly SSD in entry-level model ; Spec updates can quickly get pricey

Another good iMac. Buy one if you’re again happy with refinement rather than revolution
