Apple iMac (mid 2011, 27in)

 

The Apple iMac has received some power and performance upgrades since its last model in mid-2010. It's now got a second generation Intel Core i5 quad-...

Sandy Bridge means big performance increases from last year’s Macs ; You can now order a Magic Trackpad for free

Only incremental upgrades since the last iMac model ; There's still no Thunderbolt gear

Apple's new iMac is more powerful than the old model. That's about it -- nothing magical or revolutionary has been added to the all-in-one Mac desktop. That's not necessarily a bad thing, since we think it's one of the best all-in-one PCs on the market...

Apple iMac (27-inch review: Apple iMac (27-inch

 

Apple iMac (27-inch

Largest display among all-in-ones; fast dual-core CPU makes up for lack of quad-core (mostly); finally has an SD card slot; wireless mouse and keyboard; Mini DisplayPort input ripe with possibility.

Most Windows all-in-ones in the price range have Blu-ray; touch-sensitive mouse gestures not as responsive as we'd like; Apple's nickel-and-dime customer service policy.

Apple's new 27-inch iMac will charm plenty of you with its screen size alone. Fortunately, that won't lead you astray. Behind its expansive display, Apple has packed one of the fastest all-in-ones available, and added a few useful extras to sweeten the...

Review: Apple iMac 27 inch with Retina 5K display (late 2015, Skylake)

 

It's only been a year, but Apple's 27 inch 5K iMac is already in its third version, with an updated processor, graphics chip, and even a new screen. Is this the ultimate all-in-one, and the last desktop you'll ever need?

Still just about the most beautiful screen you’ll see on a desktop computer; Super bright screen; Very fast; Amazingly thin; Supports 802.11ac WiFi for speedy network connections; Arrives with new versions of the Apple peripherals; New keyboard and...

No Thunderbolt 3 or USB Type C; Apple’s SD card placement on the back is still a pain to work with;

Review: Apple iMac 27 inch with Retina 5K (early-2015)

 

It hasn't even been six months since we reviewed the first 5K Retina iMac, and yet here we are with a new model. What's changed, and does Apple still have the edge in desktop design?

That 5K screen is still absolutely freakin’ breathtaking; Display offers excellent colour and brightness; Very fast; Excellent graphics; Still beautifully designed; One of the thinnest desktops you’ll ever see; Two Thunderbolt 2 ports included; Speedy...

Despite the update to Intel’s Broadwell, it isn’t fan-less; Apple’s SD card slot on the back is still questionable placement; Price drop has affected hard drive type and graphics card ever so slightly;

Review: Apple iMac 27 inch with Retina 5K display (late 2014)

 

Apple may have kickstarted the whole “Retina” high-resolution screen thing in computers with its MacBook Pro, but its desktop computers have never really shared the love. Until now, that is, as Apple's iMac gets a dose of a Retina reality, and we wish...

Such a beautiful jaw-droppingly brilliant screen; Excellent colour and brightness, with so much of each to offer; Monitor goes beyond the 4K UHD resolution, and is technically 5K, meaning video editors can see the full 4K picture when they’re editing;...

Apple’s SD card slot placement is still questionable on the back; Expensive;

Apple iMac 27"

 

With the current Apple iMac approaching its first birthday, does it still prove desirable against the latest slew of Windows all-in-ones?

Unparalleled design; High resolution screen; great peripherals

No HDMI; No Blu-ray; Limp gaming ecosystem

Sandy Bridge means big performance increases from last year’s Macs ; You can now order a Magic Trackpad for free

Only incremental upgrades since the last iMac model ; There's still no Thunderbolt gear

The new Apple iMac is more than powerful enough for everyday purposes, and we’d even recommend it for professional use — someone like a video editor or photographer is well catered for with the range of power and storage upgrades available, and...

Apple iMac 27 (Early 2011)

 

We recommend Apple's new 27-inch iMac to digital media editors and others with serious performance needs on the strength of its impressive speed, its connected device potential and its market-leading 27-inch display.

The best performance, design and largest display among current all-in-ones ; Exciting potential from the Thunderbolt ports

No HDMI inputs ; Hardware options more expensive than Windows-based competition

A fast new Intel CPU and an AMD graphics chip provide Apple's new 27-inch iMac with competitive performance for its price, and the advent of Thunderbolt offers the iMac the potential for exciting peripheral devices later this year. Apple seems less...
