Apple 27-inch iMac

 

The latest version of this 27in all-in-one is powerful and stylish but it's no longer without rivals

Apple iMac 27-inch 2.7GHz review

 

Apple's iMac range sets the standard by which every other all-in-one computer is judged, with impeccably-styled aluminium chassis and massive integrated displays. This 27in widescreen is the same as the iMac's previous incarnation, with a massive...

Apple's newest iMac is an outstanding all-in-one, but its high price and limited performance improvement mean it's not worth upgrading from a recent model.

Apple iMac 27in (Mid-2011) review

 

Running changes to the Apple iMac bring it right up to date in its components, putting it a step ahead of the mainstream Windows competition in more respects than the usual Mac touchstones of comfort, security, style and ease of use.

No other PC we’ve reviewed has offered the screen quality, hardware/software integration and cool, quiet operation of the Apple iMac. The processor and graphics upgrade now brings the line up to and beyond state-of-the-art in Windows PC terms. If it...

Apple iMAC 27”

 

We huge fans of Apple design and there is no getting away from the fact that the Apple iMAC 27” is one of the best looking All-In-One desktop PCs on the market today. The aluminium body and smooth lines make it a dream to use as well as simply look at....

The screen of the Apple iMAC 27” is amazing and more than lives up to expectations, but when it comes to performance this is much more a pedestrian affair than we were expecting. Apple iMAC 27” is tagged with Apple, iMAC 27”, full HD, all-in-one and...

Apple iMac 27in (2011)

 

Apple's 27in all-in-one gets its Sandy Bridge update, along with a few other extras

A few flaws remain, but Sandy Bridge and a superb screen put it way ahead of every other all-in-one PC we've seen

Apple iMac 27in (2011 edition) review

 

The iPad and iPhone may have been making all the headlines in recent months, but Apple's Mac computers are also going strong and have racked up almost a 30 per cent increase in sales in the past year.

Strong performance, innovative Thunderbolt I/O, HD webcam, high-quality 27in IPS screen

Expensive, no internal expansion slots

The iMac's sleek design is still in a class of its own, and the performance of these new i5-based models is undeniably impressive. We're just not sure whether it's meant to be a home computer or a graphics workstation for professional users.

Apple iMac 27-inch review

 

Many creatives have snubbed it in the past, favouring instead the two-chip power, larger RAM capacity and multiple drives of the Mac Pro workstation. But with the latest Xeon chips having pushed the Mac Pro's price into the stratosphere, the iMac is...

Powerful; very affordable; high-resolution screen

iMac 2.66GHz Core i5

 

Much of the attention afforded to the new iMacs has fallen on tweaked case design and new screen options, which set a new zenith with a 27in, 2560 x 1440pixel display

That's all fantastic news if you're considering the iMac as an allinone alternative to a Mac Pro for professional applications, since that costs 300 more before you add a display. Provided your applications are properly optimised for four cores, you'll...
