Apple iMac (spring 2011) review

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

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.

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

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...

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...
