Apple iMac 27-inch 5K review: It sucks... you right in


The screen is truly mesmerizing.

Even brighter 5K Retina display than before ; $200 cheaper than previous entry-level ; Wicked fast Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports ; Fusion Drive standard on all models

Sluggish performance with 8GB of RAM

The 2017 27-inch iMac with 5K Retina display is an incredible all-in-one computer, but only after you add more RAM.

iMac 27-inch (2017) preview


With new graphics cards, a better display, faster processors and improvements to the RAM you couldn't really ask for anything more from the new 27-inch iMac

We’re impressed by the new 27-inch iMac because it’s apparent from the changes this generation brings that Apple has been listening to users, especially creative pros and probably gamers too, if the new graphics cards indicate anything.

Apple iMac 27-inch (Core i7)


Apple puts an Intel Core i7 into its huge 27-inch iMac desktop. It's power and beauty all rolled into one.

Huge display. Quad-core CPU with TurboBoost. Wireless keyboard. Wireless Magic Mouse. Mini DisplayPort input. Better screen resolution than a 1080p HDTV. EPEAT Gold and Energy Star 5.0 certified.

Card reader is SD-only. No eSATA. Requires third-party adapter for HDMI or DVI input. No Blu-ray option. No numeric keypad on wireless keyboard.
