iMac (24-inch, 2021) review

 

Apple's new iMac gets a welcome redesign

Excellent screen ; Striking new design ; Fantastic webcam ; Very good performance

Lack of ports remains ; Charging the mouse is still awkward ; Mac mini may offer better value for some

Apple iMac 24-inch (2021) review: the world's coolest desktop

 

The new iMac 24-inch is a great-looking machine with a fantastic screen and lots of power… but some limitations, too

Fantastic better-than-4K screen ; Beautiful design and colours ; Extremely fast

Cheapest version is missing some features ; Only USB Type-C ports ; GPU and maximum RAM may be limiting

The iMac 24-inch is a great home or work machine, and has the power and screen for some pro work as well. But lower-price machine doesn't offer quite the full experience, and it's awkward for ports.

iMac 2021 (M1) review

 

Apple's latest iMac introduces a much-needed redesign with various colours to choose from along with solid specs revolving around a 4.5K Retina display and M1 chip

Stunning design ; Excellent screen ; Solid specs ; Smooth performance

Overly complex SKUs ; No USB-A ; Moves too easily

The latest iMac is a captivating machine that combines stunning design with excellent specs and only minor quibbles. It's a great all-rounder all-in-one with unnecessarily complicated model options.

M1 Apple iMac 24in review: A long time coming

 

The Apple iMac gets its redesign at last, but it isn't a huge leap forward in performance terms

Elegant and attractively minimalist design ; M1 chip is fast ; Runs iOS and macOS apps

Pricier than buying the M1 Mac mini ; Restrictive selection of ports

I’m delighted that the iMac has finally been given the overhaul it deserves after such a long leave of absence. I’m even more delighted that it’s ultimately a largely successful revamp. The M1 iMac 24in is slimmer, sleeker and faster than the previous...

Apple iMac 24in (2021) review

 

Apple's iMac finally gets a revamp – inside and out – with bold new colours and an M1 chip

Wonderful visual overhaul ; M1 chip is blazing fast ; Touch ID on the keyboard ; Excellent display and speakers

No Centre Stage or Face ID ; Entry-level unit missing some features ; Can’t adjust screen vertically ; Game performance not amazing

A worthy update that marries the best of iMac’s past and present – and that even managed to eradicate our cynicism.

24in iMac (2021) review: power and performance for home use

 

The new colourful 24in iMac is bigger, brighter and better, but is it the right Mac for you?

Excellent screen ; Improved FaceTime camera ; Surprisingly good sound

The price seems high compared to other M1 Macs

The 24in iMac is a colourful computer ideal for home use and as such it is difficult to find something to complain about. The screen is excellent, the sound exceeds expectations and performance is more than adequate. But, with the same specs on offer...

Apple iMac (24-inch) M1 review: Seeing is believing

 

Reinvented as the iMac for a new generation. It has to be seen in person to truly appreciate its design.

Eye-popping screen ; Speakers sound amazing ; Webcam is excellent ; M1 performance still surprises ; Lots of fun color options ; Touch ID built into keyboard

Lame port selection ; The Magic Mouse is still annoying

APPLE IMAC M1 REVIEW: THE ALL-IN-ONE FOR ALMOST EVERYONE

 

This is an iMac unlike any other iMac we've seen before, and it all comes down to the M1 chip. Sure, there are some other differences between this 24-inch iMac and the 21.5-inch model from 2019 that it's replacing. There are better microphones and...

Great processor Fun colors and sleek design The webcam is actually good

Limited port selection Not the best value for its price Can’t upgrade anything after purchase

In short, this device costs money. And it’s true that you’d get similar performance and save a few hundred bucks, if you just plugged a Mac Mini into an external display. But this iMac has almost everything that most people need in one package:...

Apple iMac 24-Inch Review

 

The original Apple iMac, launched at the end of the last millennium, is the archetype for the modern all-in-one desktop computer. The most recognizable of all Mac desktops, its luster nevertheless diminished over the past two decades as it became less...

A perky reimagining of the classic iMac design Color-matched accessories Extraordinarily thin Available fingerprint reader Snappy Apple M1 processor Excellent camera quality

Expensive as configured, and for screen size Requires external power brick Uncomfortable keyboard No touch input on screen Limited port selection

The first major iMac redesign in years turns Apple's classic computer into a gorgeous all-in-one with the M1 processor, multiple color options, and a stunningly thin exterior. It’s neither the most powerful nor the most versatile Mac desktop, but it’s...

Apple iMac 24-inch M1 review

 

The new iMac M1 is quite possibly the greatest generational leap forward in iMac history - it's simply superb

Gorgeous design ; Stunning performance ; Sublime screen

Only 16GB RAM, but not a deal-breaker ; 24 inches limiting for some editing ; M1 SoC locks out upgrade/repair

Given the ground-breaking performance and efficiency gains of Apple’s M1 SoC in the MacBook and Mac Mini, it was always going to be a dead cert that any iMac powered by this hardware was going to be a stellar performer. The fact that Apple has also...
