iMac with Retina 5K display: has Apple created the ultimate all-in-one?

 

Update: Apple has refreshed its 27-inch iMac models with Intel's sixth-generation Skylake processors, upgraded AMD Radeon R9 M395 graphics and displays that boast a wider, multimedia-friendly DCI P3 colour gamut. In T3's tests, the Quad-Core Core i5...

Incredible display ; Design ; Build quality

Merely OK graphics ; Price ; Fusion Drive not standard

The iMac with 5K Retina display is a stunning computer that’s also practical thanks to its pixel-packed display. All of those pixels make a tangible difference to its usability, as not only can you fit more onto the screen, the increased quality makes...

Apple iMac with Retina 5K display (2015) review: Pixel-packed powerhouse

 

Apple introduced the world to a 5K-resolution version of the 27-inch iMac last year and, well, it was an absolutely fantastic workhorse that not only looked the part, but performed it too.

Beautiful and slim design, stunning and improved display, plenty of power, new Magic Keyboard is lovely, upgradeable RAM port, lower price than predecessor

Ports on the rear difficult to access, extra RAM from Apple is pricey, 1TB Fusion Drive drop in SSD portion (no issue for 2TB), not all applications will render resolution optimised

The new Apple 5K iMac is an excellent all-in-one. It not only looks beautiful, but it performs impeccably too. It is the machine for professionals; those who need a computer that won't let them down when it comes to editing 4K video or crunching...

Apple iMac with Retina 5K 27in (2015) review

 

All your pixels are belong to us

Incredibly sharp, smooth 27in screen ; Excellent heat management ; Stunning design

Speakers and webcam need improving ; Rear sockets aren’t the most convenient ; Pretty pricey

Still the most desirable all-in-one PC in the world. Some upgrades are due, but it’s a smash.

Apple iMac with 5K Retina display (27-inch, late 2015) review

 

With more colours, Apple's iMac now puts everything on display

Display ; Peformance ; Sound ; Accessories

Core i7 costs extra ; No height adjustability ; No Target Display Mode

Apple's best iMac gets even better thanks to a subtle, but noticable improvement in colour support, alongside Intel's latest Skylake processor.

27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display (2017) review: The fastest, most stunning iMac ever made

 

An amazing display with so many pixels makes the 27-inch iMac a real winner and puts itself in a league of its own

Stunning 5K display ; Performance

Price

When you look at it like that, the 27-inch iMac with 5K Retina Display isn’t just amazing value, it’s a complete steal. Given the quality of the display, the speed of the internals, the build quality and the amazing wireless peripherals, there’s...

Apple 27-inch 3.06GHz iMac review

 

Apple's latest iMac is desirable, but it's neither an entertainment all-rounder nor a true powerhouse.

The iMac is an excellent computer, with a sleek design and a stunning display, but its humdrum performance stops it from being a serious workstation. Those with serious image or video work to undertake should spend the extra £200 for the Core i5 version.

Apple iMac 27-inch (A1419) 2015 review

  (Rating Hidden)

This model has since been superseded by the 2017 Apple iMac 27-inch, but could it still be worth picking up if you find it for a knock-down price? Find out in our full review.

Apple 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display (2017) review: Apple’s greatest all-in-one is a belter

 

Kaby Lake internals, a faster Fusion Drive and better graphics give the 5K iMac a much-needed boost

I’m going to keep this brief: the Apple 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display is still fantastic. I love it. Even though it's even longer in the tooth than it was in 2015, I’d totally buy one if I had the money, and there isn’t anything – other, perhaps,...

2015 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display review

 

We take a look at the three new 27in iMacs, all of which now have a 5K Retina display, along with better Skylake processors.

The idea of a 5K 27in iMac for less than £1,500 might sound attractive, but we’d advise that you think twice about that model, equipped as it is with a standard (slow) hard drive. Essentially the only difference between that model and the one above it...

Apple iMac 2015 review: Still the best all-in-one, now with less sticker shock

 

The 5K iMac remains the best all-in-one on the market, and in 2015 it gets an even better display and -- even better -- a lower price.

Amazing screen with even better color detail ; Reduced price ; New accessories have built-in rechargeable batteries

Fusion Drive not available on base model

The 5K iMac remains the best all-in-one on the market, and in 2015 it gets an even better display and — even better — a lower price.
