Apple iMac 27-inch (Thunderbolt)

 

If you own or run a graphics-oriented business, you can stop buying Mac Pros and switch most of your staff to the new Apple iMac 27-inch (Thunderbolt).

Huge 27-inch display. 2,560-by-1,440 (larger than 1080p HD) screen resolution. High-end discrete 3D graphics. Two Thunderbolt ports. Supports two external displays. 802.11a/b/g/n 5GHz Wi-Fi. Wireless keyboard and mouse. No cost optional Magic Trackpad....

Only Thunderbolt input for display (No HDMI in, no mini DisplayPort in). No Blu-ray. Could use a matte screen. Pricier than other high-end all-in-one desktops.

Another nit is Apple's shunning of Blu-ray technology. Internal Blu-ray drives are not an option on any iMac. Apple doesn't view Blu-ray optical discs as a replacement for data DVDs, and would rather you bought your HD videos from the iTunes Store...

Apple iMac 27-inch (Core i5)

 

The Apple iMac 27-inch (Core i5) gives you speedy quad-core power, better 3D and the same large screen as its previous iteration, for a couple hundred bucks less.

True quad-core power. Wireless keyboard/mouse. Mini DisplayPort in/out. Screen has 2,560 by 1,440 resolution. Large display. Green certifications. 802.11a/n 5GHz support.

Still no Blu-ray drive. No eSATA. Card reader is SD/SDHC/SDXC only. Requires third-party adapter for HDMI or DVI.

The 27-inch Apple iMac Review (2011)

 

A year ago I tried the notebook as a desktop experiment. The first Arrandale MacBook Pros hit the market and I thought, why not give two cores and four threads a try. I gave it a try for less than a day before having to switch back to the Mac Pro.

Apple iMac review: thin is in

Best all-in-one desktop suitable for gaming

 

The current version of the Apple iMac packs in Intel's second-generation Sandy Bridge processor and is the fastest all-in-one desktop you can buy. It even beats some tower-based desktops in performance tests, and reviewers say it is the best...

Gorgeous high-resolution display, faster than any other all-in-one, good performance for gaming

Expensive, no Blu-ray drive, no HDMI port

Apple iMac 27-inch (Thunderbolt)

 

The Apple iMac 27-inch (Thunderbolt) is the newest top-of-the-line iMac, and it adds second-generation Intel Core i processors (aka, Sandy Bridge) to Apple's class-leading all in one Mac desktops, along with Thunderbolt ports first seen on the new...

Huge 27-inch display. 2,560-by-1,440 (larger than 1080p HD) screen resolution. High-end discrete 3D graphics. Two Thunderbolt ports. Supports two external displays. 802.11a/b/g/n 5GHz Wi-Fi. Wireless keyboard and mouse. No cost optional Magic Trackpad....

Only Thunderbolt input for display (No HDMI in, no mini DisplayPort in). No Blu-ray. Could use a matte screen. Pricier than other high-end all-in-one desktops

It's pricey, has a huge screen, and is as powerful as an Asgardian thunder god. If you need a graphics PC for your business, the new Apple iMac 27-inch (Thunderbolt) will rival the huge tower workstations currently available. For the rest of us who...

Apple iMac Display Problems Reported

 

Owners of 20 and 24 inch iMacs have reported problems with their iMac displays. Apple has not acknowledged any problems.

You may wonder why users don't notice the problem before buying their iMacs. First, many iMacs are purchased from the Apple website. However, even when looking at an iMac display in a retail store, the issue is not immediately obvious, because iMacs...

Apple iMac 27-inch 2.7GHz review

 

Apple's iMac range sets the standard by which every other all-in-one computer is judged, with impeccably-styled aluminium chassis and massive integrated displays. This 27in widescreen is the same as the iMac's previous incarnation, with a massive...

Apple's newest iMac is an outstanding all-in-one, but its high price and limited performance improvement mean it's not worth upgrading from a recent model.

Apple iMac 27"

 

With the current Apple iMac approaching its first birthday, does it still prove desirable against the latest slew of Windows all-in-ones?

Unparalleled design; High resolution screen; great peripherals

No HDMI; No Blu-ray; Limp gaming ecosystem

Apple iMac 27" Review

 

A stylish, sleek iMac with all the tools a photographer should need. The Apple iMac 27" review follows....

Fantastically powerful, looks great, Thunderbolt has potential

Very expensive, few Thunderbolt devices

Such is the performance of the iMac that even those spending the extra would be impressed. The future appearance of Thunderbolt devices means, at the current time, more potential is yet to be realized but if prior models are any evidence the likelihood...
