iMac 21.5-inch 4K (2017)

 

iMac 21.5-inch 4K review 2017: A superb power desktop for professionals, home users and even gamers.

Stunning screen ; Powerful processor ; Near-silent running ; Good graphics performance ; Excellent peripherals

Needs an SSD ; Measly 8GB of RAM

The 21.5-inch iMac is available with two different processor choices. The Full HD model gets dual-core Intel Kaby Lake processors that are more typically found in laptops, while the 4K model ships with full-fat, quad-core desktop chips, also from the...

Apple iMac Pro review: is this really the pro-level beast Mac users have been waiting for?

 

Apple unleashes its most powerful desktop ever

Unbelievable power ; Looks great and saves space ; Gorgeous 5K screen

So much money ; Awkward port placement ; Not really upgradeable

Apple 21.5in iMac with Retina 4K display (2017) review

 

The screen's the dream

Fantastic display combines resolution and colour refinement ; Dedicated graphics a welcome step up from last year ; Baby Lake CPUs bring the power

No Target Display mode to use that stunning screen with other kit ; Screen only has tilt, I guess?

Updates to almost every area hammer home the 4K iMac as the best all-in-one system around

Apple iMac (2017) review

 

A fine update to an aging all-in-one desktop design

Gorgeous 4K, P3 color display ; Excellent value ; Powerful even at entry level

Poor audio performance ; Baffling mouse charging method

The 2017 iMac is a fine update to Apple’s desktop computing platform, but suffers from a few nagging design quirks, as well as its own place amid rapidly-evolving desktop design trends. Still, for Mac fans in need of an upgrade, the 21.5-inch model...

Apple iMac 21.5-Inch With 4K Retina Display (2017)

 

Design unchanged, the latest 21.5-inch Apple iMac with 4K Retina display packs an updated CPU, Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, VR-ready graphics, and a brighter display. Despite these minor updates, it's the midrange all-in-one to beat.

Bright DCI-P3 4K screen. Can drive 4K or 5K external displays. Discrete graphics. Hybrid SSD/HDD Fusion Drive. USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 ports. Wireless keyboard and mouse included.

Shallow keyboard. Ports and SD card slot are on back panel. Lacks HDMI-in and DisplayPort-in connectors.

While the 27-inch iMac is more vulnerable to competition from Windows AIOs, the Apple iMac 21.5-inch with 4K Retina display is in a safer zone, at least for now. Windows systems like the $4,199 Surface Studio and $2,799 Dell XPS 27 are admittedly...

Review: Apple's 21.5" iMac with Retina 4K display gets solid 2017 architectural refresh

 

Apple has radically overhauled its iMac lineup for 2017, giving its 21.5 inch Retina 4K models dedicated graphics driven by AMD Radeon Pro 555/560 GPUs; a brighter display with enhanced P3 color; more powerful Intel Kaby Lake CPUs; upgradable RAM...

The latest Kaby Lake iMacs deliver strong refinements to Apple's most popular desktop Mac line. Later this year, Apple will introduce at even higher end iMac Pro that goes even further, albeit at a premium price, starting at $5000.

Consumer review (very.co.uk)

Amazing computer

 

I purchased this computer due to our old Mac being 7 years old and finally giving up the ghost. And as per any Apple product, completely satisfied with it due to speed and design.Yes they are more expensive than a windows computer, but they are far...
