The editors didn't like

  • The Apple iMAC 27”comes with just 4GB of RAM and is powered by the older Intel Core i5 processor. What this means is that this isn't the desktop you want if labour intensive apps are the way you'll be using your desktop PC. When we put the Apple iMAC 27” through its paces we found that the Intel Core i5 couldn't really handle the same amount of multi-tasking as we've seen on faster Core i7 proces
  • Same old optical drive
  • No antiglare screen option
  • Additional memory very expensive
  • Currently few Thunderbolt peripherals available
  • Cheaper iMac might prove good enough
  • Expensive
  • No internal expansion slots
  • Cheaper model might be enough
  • No Bluray
  • The processor upgrade makes it too expensive
  • Price
  • Very expensive
  • No USB 3.0 port or Bluray player
  • Awkward port placement
  • Thunderbolt ports aren't useful yet
  • Limited
  • Inaccessible connectivity
  • No Bluray player
  • Terrible mouse

  • Thunderbolt currently lacks devices
  • Screen glare on an immovable desktop can be a real issue

  • 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 de...

  • The iMac remains an incredible piece of technology, combining superb build quality with excellent performance – and of course that unrivalled Apple design aesthetic. Install Windows on it and you’ll get good gaming performance too. Not the choice if yo...

  • Abstract:  Switch it on and it boots up in a mere 24secs before it’s fully functional and ready for use. Turning it off is equally impressive, with a shutdown time of just 5secs. Applications also open promptly...

  • The new 27in iMac might be great fun but is it really worth £1,600+? That kind of money could buy you a damn hot 3D games machine, a pretty decent workstation, a touchscreen marvel… or even a mid-range MacBook Pro. But factor in the beautiful screen, ...

  • Wellcalibrated screen, Highend design and finish, Not many cables, Good general performances, Very quiet
  • Limited, inaccessible connectivity, No Bluray player, Terrible mouse, Adapter required to connect nonApple monitors
  • The iMac 27 inch has been built with high performance components (even more so than the 21.5 inch) and a very good quality screen, webcam, chassis and audio. Like the 21.5 inch however, it lacks a greater selection of everyday connections, Blu-ray compati...

  • Stunning design, Great performance, Big, beautiful display
  • Very expensive, No USB 3.0 port or Bluray player, Awkward port placement, Thunderbolt ports aren't useful yet
  • Apple's refreshed iMac isn't very ambitious, but it's still the most attractive, elegant and eminently usable all-in-one computer out there. It's extremely expensive compared to its Windows rivals, but the iMac is great fun to use....

  • Abstract:  We became quite fond of the 27in iMac and it's easy to see why, from its sleek design, quiet operation, and its huge, high quality, high resolution screen. Apart from the increased performance, the main difference between this model and its immediate p...

  • Great screen; very powerful; looks fantastic and is well designed,
  • No Bluray; the processor upgrade makes it too expensive,
  • A superb large-screen computer, though the increase in power isn't quite worth the extra cost above cheaper versions ...
