Apple iMac 27-inch (2019) review

 

Apple's been working miracles behind that well-worn look. It's crammed newer and newer (meaning hotter and hotter) components into the tiny space behind the iMac's screen without having the systems explode into flames -- I really didn't think it could...

The Apple iMac's 27-inch 5K display remains the most color-accurate monitor we've seen thus far in an all-in-one. Improved performance is especially impressive in the Core i9 model. Two USB-C/Thunderbolt connectors drive more external displays and...

The design, including thick screen bezels, feels dated. UHS-II SD cards still aren't fully supported. The tilt-only screen doesn't offer enough adjustment options.

It's something of a miracle that Apple can continue to cram newer (and hotter) components into the tiny space behind the iMac's screen, but we're already ready for a bigger redesign.

Apple iMac 27-Inch With 5K Retina Display (2019) Review

 

Does America's love affair with mobile apps and the Apple iPhone leave any room for the iMac, the all-in-one computer that firmly cemented Apple as one of the world's most iconic brands? The iMac's latest update suggests that Apple knows the iMac is...

Gorgeous Retina display. Sleek styling and extreme attention to detail. Top-notch computing performance. Solid sound quality. Excellent software bundle.

Expensive as configured. Small storage capacity. No HDMI or dedicated DisplayPort output. Lacks height adjustment. No touch screen.

With a newly available Intel Core i9 CPU and updated AMD Radeon Pro graphics, the 2019 reboot of the 27-inch Apple iMac all-in-one is now as powerful as it is beautiful.

Apple 27-inch iMac (2019): No new ground, but welcome CPU and GPU upgrades Review | ZDNet

 

Professional users in fields such as video, design and audio will appreciate the extra processor and graphics performance offered by the 2019 edition of the standard 27-inch iMac.

6-core CPUs now standard ; Improved GPU performance ; Extensive BTO options

Expensive ; Limited expansion and repair options ; Only 8GB of RAM and Fusion drives as standard

Apple iMac 27-inch Review (2019): Familiar Design, Big Power Boost

 

Apple's popular 27-inch iMac (starting at $1,799, reviewed at $3,449) has always been a top pick for a wide range of power users, from enterprise executives to online influencers. This year, Apple quietly refreshed both the 21.5-inch and 27-inch iMac...

Gorgeous 5K display Blistering speed Improved graphics performance Sleek (albeit, aging) design

Thick bezels No touch-screen option No height adjustment Ports are rear-mounted

The new iMac is an excellent all-in-one for creative professionals, thanks to its gorgeous 5K display, breakneck speeds and powerful speakers.

Review: Apple's 2017 27" 5K iMac impresses with truly powerful desktop-class graphics

 

Apple has radically overhauled its iMac lineup for 2017, giving its 27 inch Retina 5K models dedicated graphics driven by AMD Radeon Pro 570, 575, and 580 GPUs; a brighter display with enhanced P3 wide color; more powerful Intel Kaby Lake CPUs;...

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 $5,000. The 5K Mac...

Apple iMac 27-inch (2019) review

 

A new powerhouse atop Apple's consumer all-in-one range

Stunning 5K display with wide color gamut ; Vega 48 outperforms even high-end eGPUs ; Remains quiet with heavy workload

Costly ample SSD storage ; 8GB RAM to start throughout models ; Mouse remains annoying to charge

The 27-inch Apple iMac’s 5K display remains a gorgeous standout feature, and if you need top-notch performance, the high-end CPU and GPU options are justifiable extras. We only wish every buyer got to enjoy a responsive iMac with an SSD.

Apple iMac 27-inch (2019) review: Apple iMac 2019 is a millennial trapped in the body of a baby boomer

 

The inveterate desktop speeds up thanks to newer components, but it's time for the design to retire.
