Apple iMac 27 – inch Desktop PC (Intel Core i5 2.66GHz, 2X2GB RAM, 1TB Hard Drive, 4850-512MB-GBR)

The iMac offers some prime pixel real estate. The 27-inch, 2560-by-1440 display has a whopping 78 percent more pixels than the 21.5-inch iMac. And a 1000:1 contrast ratio gives you more vibrant colours and blacker blacks. All that in a widescreen display with a 16:9 aspect ratio – the same as an HD TV. The iMac display looks great from any seat in the house, thanks to a premium display technology called in-plane switching (IPS). IPS gives you a bright picture with excellent colour consistency – even if you’…

    Superb Computer Not only is this the best computer I have ever bought it’s the most reliable, trouble free, does as it states piece of kit. I purchased one of these because I do run a photography business and currently own several iPhones which have instilled the Apple way of life in me.I upgraded the RAM to 8GB using Crucial’s cheaper upgrade option and it now has 8GB ram, one thing to note is that although the computer can be ran in 64 Bit mode (holding down keys 6 and 4 when it starts – this took me a while to figure out!) the software still needs to be for 64 Bit computers to get the full usage from it, for example Photoshop CS4 is only 32Bit software and will only use 3.2GB of the installed RAM no matter how much you state it can use. Photoshop CS5 onwards will allow far greater RAM usage.I am not going to say I have not experienced the odd problem or two but these seem to be more operating system niggles that were easily overcome, the problem I had most often was the…

    Fantastic computer, everything just works! I have always wondered why everyone praises these computers. I finally took the plunge and ordered one from Amazon. Delivery took just a few days, it arrived perfectly packaged. Unpacked and setup in minutes – they’ve thought of everything, even the mouse and keyboard are ready loaded with batteries. Just plug in and switch on, it couldn’t be simpler.The screen is extremely good. I was a little concerned about it being glossy, but it’s really not an issue. It’s particularly sharp and ideal for watching video.The built in speakers are also worth a mention – for me very very good sound, good bass, loud enough for general use, with the option that you can hook up to an amp via optical cable.I’ve also purchased an EyeTV Sat receiver that plugs into the usb port. Unlike on my Windows Vista laptop, where this receiver was constantly crashing and locking the whole system, on the iMac it works perfectly. High Definition TV is a dream, it’s a perfect addition to the iMac…

    Let downs: Snow Leopard, backward boot disc compatibility, Seagate HD issues and UPS delivery This review is for the i7 quad core version of the 27 inch imac. Overall, I’m pleased with the machine – prior to delivery I had anxieties following reviews of iMacs arriving with cracked screens and dead pixels, stories which abound across the web, but thankfully, mine seems to be fine. As soon as I turned it on, there has been a software update for the graphics card which I expect was to address the screen flicker issues. I was also concerned about glare from the screen – and it remains a slight nag (I don’t want to see my reflection when I’m working). Against that, photos do look a lot better. It would be good if Apple offered customers the choice of specifying a matte screen for their new iMac range.The main problem, as seems to be the case increasingly with Apple, are the teething problems with the new OS, Snow Leopard: lots of Finder restarts required, forced quits, the absence of Print to Adobe PDF is really annoying and means I will not be giving up Tiger on…
