Apple iMac new review

Apple iMac new review

Announced in October last year, the new Apple iMac promised a powerful processor, great visual display and a screen thin enough to fit comfortably on any desk. At the same time, Apple announced a new and improved version of the classic Mac Mini – the new design boasting an improved new processor and new Fusion drive while still being in an amazingly small package.

While retaining the original iMac’s looks, the new version is thinner lighter and smaller with the new Apple favoured black bezel edge on the screen, an aluminum chin below with a central Apple logo and a tilting aluminum stand. While the screen isn’t as thin as modern TVs, the size is still impressive compared to other monitors on the market, especially considering there is an entire PC inside it.

Compared to older iMac models, the new screen is the biggest improvement, albeit it is a huge improvement. It is sleeker, slimmer with a better display. Although it hardly blows the competition out of the water, this is by far the best iMac ever released.

Those who prefer Microsoft are unlikely to jump ship but the Apple faithful will be happy with the bigger screen. If you crave a touch screen, Windows 8 is still in the lead and also boasts better media friendly features.
HP’s Spectre One has a similar design quality to the iMac, and Dell’s XPS 27 offers all the features but for the combination of design, features, and horsepower the iMac offers, there is a serious gap in the market.
