Apple iMac review (2013)

 

The iMac remains our favorite all-in-one desktop, and returns this year with beefier graphics, faster WiFi and brisker disk speeds.

Stunning, low-glare display ; Improved graphics performance, disk speeds ; Attractive design ; Robust audio

No optical drive

We already loved the iMac for its attractive design, forceful audio and sharp, low-glare screen, so it's even easier to recommend it now that it's been upgraded with new processors, more powerful GPUs, faster 802.11ac WiFi and speedier PCIe SSDs....

Apple iMac 27-inch (Intel Core i5-4670)

 

The inclusion of the latest 4th-generation Intel Core i5 quad-core CPU and Nvidia GeForce GTX 775M Kepler graphics propel the Apple iMac 27-inch (Intel Core i5-4670) back to the top spot among high-end all-in-one desktops.

Fusion Drive is SSD+HDD, but smart. Stunningly thin design. Impressive low-glare display. Top-of-the-line processor and graphics card offer best-in-class performance. User serviceable memory slots. Ports include Thunderbolt and USB 3.0. Can work as a...

No Touch Screen. SD card slot in back. No internal upgradability beyond RAM. No height adjustment. Requires adapter for HDMI.

Like other Macs, the iMac comes preloaded with iPhoto, iTunes, Mail, etc. The iMac has a one-year warranty. One future-proofing plus is that the iMac can work as a monitor for a future Thunderbolt-equipped Mac. Using one of the two Thunderbolt ports,...

Apple iMac (27-inch, September 2013) review

 

It's telling that the latest set of updates to Apple's iMac all-in-one desktop were not announced at one of the company's regular stage shows. Instead, the new iMac slipped quietly into Apple's Web site, the news announced via an understated press...

With the addition of Intel's Haswell chips, plus 802.11ac wireless, faster SSD hard drives, and new Nvidia GPUs, the latest Apple iMac is a thoroughly up-to-date desktop.

Other big-screen all-in-one systems have handy extras missing here, such as touch screens and HDMI inputs.

Anyone who bought last year's redesigned iMac doesn't need to upgrade, but for owners of older models or anyone looking to switch, the latest 27-inch Apple iMac offers a wide-ranging set of internal upgrades.

Apple iMac 2013

 

That's because the updates are internal, putting new hardware inside an iMac body that received a major makeover in 2012. From the outside, this is the same slim screen sitting on top of an aluminum stand and minimalist base. The design was...

Apple iMac 27-inch (Nvidia GeForce GTX 675M)

 

If you're in the market for a high-end Mac right now, the Apple iMac 27-inch (Nvidia GeForce GTX 675M) is a powerhouse system.

Stunningly thin design. Impressive low-glare display. Top-of-the-line processor and graphics card offer best-in-class performance. User serviceable memory slots. Ports include Thunderbolt and USB 3.0.

Pricey. No internal upgradability. No HDMI-in or out without an adapter. No height adjustment. Needs external Thunderbolt drive for more storage.

The Apple iMac 27-inch (Nvidia GeForce GTX 675M) certainly makes a case for itself, you'll certainly get better performance when you max out the memory and use Flash Storage. If you're a Mac maven who already has external Thunderbolt storage, this is a...

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 27-inch (2013) Review

 

Apple wowed us with the new iMac last year , its incredible design borrowing from aerospace construction methods and the sort of screen lamination only done on smartphones like the iPhone, while inside delivering the sort of power desktop users...

First things first: if you want a computer that’s amenable to hardware tinkering, an all-in-one is not the way to go, iMac or otherwise. Apple’s gamble was that its users would rather have compactness, power, and premium design, even if it meant...

iMac 27-inch (2013)

 

The best all-in-one desktop just got better

Awesome design and build quality ; Very cool and quiet ; Plays games decently ; Convenience ; Great screen

Mediocre webcam ; Default colour settings not great ; Price

Finally, while the glass front means this isn't a true professional class screen, reflections aren't anything like as bad as you'd expect. This is largely down to changes introduced last year, namely an improved coating and tighter air gap, but the...

27-inch Apple iMac review

 

Apple's large-screen all-in-one desktop Mac gets some welcome late 2013 improvements

Haswell processors ; 802.11ac ; Beautiful slimline design ; Nvidia 7 Series graphics ; Good custom build options

No optical drive ; Limited upgrade options ; £50 or £100 more expensive than last year ; No Hyper Threading on standard processors ; Didn't get a Retina screen option

Apple iMac 27-inch (2013) review

 

With the world seemingly so keen to go mobile, it's a pleasant acknowledgement that Apple still feels there is a place for a desktop computer within its range. That comes in the lovely form of the iMac, reviewed here in its latest Haswell-based 27-inch...

Fast, beautifully designed, graphics power, Fusion Drive is great, thin design and small footprint for a 27-in screen

Not really upgradable, screen could be higher res, can be fiddly to use slots around the back

The 27-inch iMac is available with a 3.2 GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.6 GHz and Nvidia GeForce GTX 755M for a suggested retail price of £1,599. Our review unit would cost an impressive £2,229 thanks to its 3.5 GHz...
