Apple iMac (spring 2011) review

 

The heaviest of heavyweights in the all-in-one field has seen another update, another batch of new internals to liven up the aging (but still classy) chassis....

For the 2017 iMac 27, Apple doesn't mess with success

 

New components under the hood make for a faster iMac. But they're packed into the familiar chassis of yesteryear.

The Apple iMac's 27-inch 5K display remains the most color-accurate monitor we've seen thus far in an all-in-one, and performance is much improved. Plus it's got two USB-C/Thunderbolt connectors which can drive more external displays and faster file...

The overall design remains unchanged since 2014 -- including the inconvenient rear-mounted ports and SD slot.

The already impressive 27-inch 5K iMac gets some welcome spec upgrades for 2017, but rival Windows machines have closed the gap.

Apple iMac (spring 2011) review

 

Apple's 27-inch iMacs stand out largely because they offer bigger displays than any other all-in-one. The newly updated 21.5-inch iMac has always had a harder time persuading buyers thanks to the glut of 23-inch Windows-based all-in-ones in the same...

As the most-affordable iMac, the Apple iMac 21.5-inch offers competitive speed, the unique potential of its Thunderbolt port, and Apple's trademark design leadership.

The 21.5-inch iMac isn't the best all-in-one for home entertainment, and its performance competitiveness suffers without an option for more video memory.

Apple's $1,199 iMac doesn't offer the same home entertainment features as Windows-based all-in-ones, but its speed, looks, and the future utility of its Thunderbolt port make it a strong choice for performance-sensitive professionals.

Apple iMac review (mid 2011)

 

Hard to believe it's only been 10 months since the last iMac update, but Apple's venerable desktop needed a quick bump to stay current with Intel's Sandy Bridge processors and the Thunderbolt...

Excellent display ; Solid performance ; Competitive pricing

No Blu-ray drive ; Ultra-glossy display ; Thunderbolt not yet useful

The iMac remains the single best all-in-one computer available

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 (July 2010)

 

Huge, quality screen and high resolution. SDXC card support. Grunty new GPU. Still the best value all-in-one.

No eSATA port. Gloss screen may irritate some.

While others have tried and failed, the iMac is still king of the hill when it comes to all-in-ones. All that's left to ask for is faster external storage and better SSDs, but for now it still comes highly recommended.

The 27-inch Apple iMac Review (2011)

 

A couple of weeks ago, a big box showed up at my doorstep. Inside? The new 2011 high-end 27-inch iMac. More or less it's the 2011 MacBook Pro mated to a 27-inch LED backlit Cinema Display. It's basically my personal setup but in an all-in-one desktop.

The new 27-inch iMac repeats all of the things I liked about the new MacBook Pro. It's stylish and as always Apple was pretty smart about most of its component choices. Thanks to Intel's quad-core Sandy Bridge CPUs, the system is very fast. In fact, as...

iMac 2020 review

 

Apple's new 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 new 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.

Apple iMac 27-inch

 

However, it is also a well-built and stunning-looking powerhouse that can handle everything short of high-end gaming at maximum settings. If an Apple system is not a must, for a little less the very well-regarded Dell XPS 27 Touch (Est. $1,600 and up)...

Stunning design, Good performance, Gorgeous, low-glare screen

No optical drive, Limited user upgrades, No height adjustment
