Apple iMac 21.5in (2010)


Another year, another relatively minor update. Is the iMac still the best all-in one money can buy?

Good range of connectivity options ; Superior operating system ; Elegant design

Downward-facing speakers ; Ergonomics could be better ; Hard to access inputs

The iMac isn’t a cheap system, but you certainly get what you pay for. The updates the latest refresh has added aren’t groundbreaking and the continued lack of Blu-ray is something of an annoyance but we can forgive the latter and on most other fronts...

Apple iMac 21.5in (Mid 2010) review


In this year's refresh, the quintessential all-in-one PC is once again available in two models. Last month we reviewed the larger iMac with 27in display, and in its configured-to-order guise had performance to see off most of the Windows-only...

For close-up daily work, we found the size and resolution of this 21.5in full-HD screen to be a comfortable fit. Designers and those looking for large-screen entertainment are better served by the 27in iMac. Formidable attention to detail in design and...

Apple iMac 21.5in 2010


Review While rather overshadowed by the mighty iPhone and iPad in recent months, Apple?s iMac desktop machines are still selling well and the company has just refreshed the entire product line ahead of the Christmas spending spree.

The weakness in the iMac range really lies in the models that aren?t available ? I still miss the discontinued 24in model, while the lack of a more affordable machine in the ?700-?800 range seems to suggest that Apple is simply turning its nose up at...

Buy if you don't do a lot of gaming. The display is beautiful, and this thing is downright gorgeous sitting on my desk right now. It handles basic tasks, like word processing and web browsing, and also Youtube, with ease. Since I am starting to make...

This computer is good. It has a core i3 3.2 Ghz processor, 4GB of ram, and a 500GB HDD (note: my computer is an iMac from mid 2010 with a 1TB hard drive, no difference from this other than capacity ; This computer is beautifully designed, and it's 2560...

This computer is OUTDATED. Its Core i3 can't handle recording Minecraft at more than 720p 30fps, with a ton of inventory lag. Even the 1TB hard drive on mine isn't sufficient, so I have an external Seagate 2TB in addition
