The iMac is innovation that you can see. It offers a big, bold widescreen display that is every inch stunning.

First Mac - Sweet Machine - The future looks bright

This was our family’s first Mac. We are an iPhone/iPad family so there was some familiarity there as well as my two school age daughters were already proficient -- as their schools have always been Mac-based. So as an old-school PC user that always built my PCs with the latest/greatest/fastest hardware, I expected a lot from this Mac from all the hype surrounding these machines. So far (as I have only had this machine a few weeks) I am not disappointed. I am still learning everyday how to do task on the Mac, but so far the machine has performed well. A few applications have locked up every now and then, but the "force quit" (like the ctrl+alt+del) seemed to be a bit more convenient. The OS for Mac is very impressive and intuitive so the learning curve from Windows is not as steep as I had thought, but any questions I have are a simple Google or YouTube search away.

What I really was excited about was using iMovie to help transfer all my old DV video tapes from our DV camcorder to the hard drive. This was a pain on my PC even though I had the hardware and software that should have gotten the job done, but had failed and discouraged my efforts. I have now been very pleased with the ease of this task on the iMac compared to my PC. I purchased a Thunderbolt to FireWire adapter and so far this has been a breeze and I am happy to finally get these older family home videos onto a hard drive, then backed up to an AirPort 3TB Time Capsule I already owned (then backed up on the Cloud using Crashplan cloud services - which I recommend). So besides video, we plan to task this machine for photos, school work, learning, and fun. Time will tell as this machine is still brand new and in the honeymoon phase at our home, but I feel the future looks bright!

Great Deal on Great Computer

The iMac 27-inch solved a lot of issues. My work computer was an underpowered 32-bit Windows 7 system that I attempted to do some graphics works on, even though it wasn’t designed to do that. Also, I have some vision problems and my old display just wasn’t cutting it. Our IT department spec’ed out a new Dell System that had similar features for about the same price. Both of my adult children are Mac fans, and I’ve had some experience with Mac, so I thought why not?

Store shipped it the same day as the order and it was delivered in great condition. Setup was the easiest process I’ve ever seen. Our IT department didn’t even have to help me connect to our network, shared drives or networked printers.

I’ve been very pleased with my decision. The display is just incredible. There is no other word for it. The computer is incredibly fast. The programs I work with most are Adobe Creative Suite CC and Microsoft Office 365. Both suites are similar on the Windows and Mac platforms, so there has been no difficulty in moving to the Mac versions.

Caveats are the included Magic Mouse and keyboards are pretty weak. I changed immediately to a wireless Logitech mouse and keyboard with numeric keypad.

Other issues if you’re moving from Windows (which are actually Office for Mac issues) are that Excel doesn’t open Active X content, nor will it open OpenOffice native format worksheets. There was a minor hiccup when the System upgraded to OS X Mavericks when the Finder disappeared. All it took was shutting the system down, unplugging it for a few minutes and then normal startup. The store and the iMac both get my highest recommendations.

Purchased yet another Mac and love it!

I’m probably not the most objective in writing this review. Once I switched from PC to Mac over five years ago, I’ve never looked back. There’s simply no comparison. And my new iMac appears to be following in the same pattern of product excellence. I had my last iMac for over four years. It performed well, and is now heading to its new home at my parents’ house to live on for likely several more years. This new iMac is a delight, is beautifully crafted, sleek and works well. I had an initial issue with Time Machine (installing all the old data) followed by an OS software update, but everything worked flawlessly on round two. It runs quiet, and works like a dream. What else can I say? Oh, and the store was great to work with, once again! Thanks.

PC to Mac and Never Looking Back

Previously with IBM for 10 years, I've always been a PC guy. However, over the years with the advent of bloatware and increasing malware/virus attacks from multiple directions (browser, email, Word and Excel macros, etc.), our household has moved away from 'open architecture' to Apple's safer and, imho, more user-friendly environment.

First it was the iPhone. What a great little device. So easy to use, it ended up defining the smartphone and raising the bar for all manufacturers/providers. Then, we went further to the dark side and got an iPad. Then another. Today we have three... My wife got a MacBook Air for night school two years ago -- loves it.

Finally, our last PC got an annoying pop-up virus (got right by Norton with up to date definitions), which was the final straw. This slowed our PC down even further and brought us further pain. That's IT. We are done with MS and PCs in general.

We just bought the current base model iMac 21.5 inches. Except for glitchy Bluetooth, it is a wonder and everything a home computer should be. MacMall order/shipping service was excellent. We are a happy Apple family!

HD Video Production

Body: The 27" iMac is a great turn-key system for crashing out fast HD pieces for web or on-air distribution. With FCP X, we can deftly produce quick pieces incorporating a variety of original formats on a cost-effective platform that doesn’t make the newsroom look too shabby either!

MacMall is a great way to buy Apple’s premium hardware as well. Our close-out model arrived quicker-than-quoted in pristine condition. Add to that the confidence of buying through an authorized retailer with up-to-date order tracking, and we can’t imagine ever looking anywhere else now. The standard has been set.

Two weeks with a new 27-inch iMac

This is my fourth Mac, the first being an SE30 back in ‘89. So I get a new Mac every eight years or so. Each new Mac comes with improvements and some drawbacks. I needed to buy a numeric keypad and superdrive as I still use them. Some old programs that were out of past Power PCs are now history. One was my 2006 version of Quicken. The new Quicken program lacks reporting options and seems to be more like the old PC version I used to have. That truly is an ugly world so for Quicken to move in that direction isn't good. On the good side is my Calendar. Now my iMac is working with my wife's MacBook, iPhone and my iPad. The Notification Center and keychain is great, making life a little less complicated.

One thing I don't like is opening folders over the top of the previous folder. I can tile the folders open if I press the command key and click on the folder. This is an extra step. I learn how to use folders back in the SE30 days and I don't like changing. I still use Excel for a lot of things and share these files with others. I can't store my Excel files in iCloud. When we travel, I would like to place some Excel files in the cloud and use my wife's MacBook to get to them. There are no doubt more things to report as I learn to use this Mac, but given 25 years with trouble-free computing I have trouble understanding why people buy PCs. I also have nearly the same time working with PC at work and it is an ugly way to go.

Beautiful new iMac

Big and beautiful, this new iMac continues Apple's tradition of making home computing a pleasure. Simple to follow setup instructions got me going right away, and the new operating system is similar enough to previous versions that it is very easy to get used to. Of course it is a fast machine, and it will take some time to learn all the new tricks that the magic mouse can do.

I work with large ensemble music scores, and the 27-inch screen allows me to see huge chunks of music at one time, which is quite an improvement over my previous G3 iMac. Processing the score for playback is now a much quicker matter than previously and individual parts are generated pretty much instantaneously. I will be enjoying work on this computer for a long time to come.

Shipping was free and amazingly quick -- I only had to wait a couple of days for it to arrive, and I saved quite a bit off of list price, adding in the discount and no sales tax.

iMac review

I love this computer. Getting used to some new apps but the 27" iMac screen is great and the i7 3.4GHz processor is fast. Only thing I was disappointed at is that my older Quicken program will not run on Mountain Lion. So far, I’m very satisfied. MacMall support had been very helpful to me when I ordered to get all the stuff I wanted on my new iMac.

As an avid Mac user, I am totally impressed with the performance of this product, and the fast response that MacMall took to deliver it to me. Their price on this iMac was substantially below all the other internet vendors I looked at. Price, and the knowledge of the quality of Apple computers, was the main influence for my selection. Thank you for your excellent and speedy service.

Apple iMac 27

"Our old iMac worked flawlessly for 3 years. But, alas, technological progress passed it by, and its (now) measly dual-core processors couldn’t be upgraded beyond OSX 10.5. Recently we needed to acquire a new app from the Mac App Store, but the App Store itself is only available for 10.6 or above, so it was time for new iMac.

We decided to upgrade to the 27"" iMac display and it’s a stunner. So much space to lay out your work. Crisp, bright, and fast. Installation was a breeze. We had all our files backed up on an external drive via Time Machine, and when we turned on the new iMac it instantly found the files and asked if we wanted to copy them, and our saved settings, over to the new Mac. An hour later we were up and running exactly where we had left off with the old Mac.

The latest iMac is an incredible machine and value. Got it at a great price from MacMall, $300 off retail. Will probably be doing it all again, but hopefully not for another 3 years."

We returned a new Dell after two weeks of wrestling with Windows 8 and getting no predictable results for simple tasks. The same day we turned it in, we ordered our new iMac all-in-one desktop.

Beautiful

We bought the least expensive 27" iMac to replace my wife's 13" MacBookPro. The screen is beautiful. The computer is fast and responsive. Set up was super easy. One thing I had not noticed (but is clearly stated if I had read the details) is that it shipped with Mountain Lion installed, which is not the newest version of the operating system. During setup I imported information and programs from the Time Machine backup of my wife's dead laptop that had the newest OS, Mavericks. A few programs were Mavericks-only and were disabled by the OS. But after installing the free upgrade to the OS, everything worked fine. I was happily surprised how easily it was to recover from this mistake (importing info from a backup from a newer OS). If this had been a different OS I do not think any of this would have been so easy. Even though iPhoto was one of the disabled applications, once the OS was upgraded and it worked all the photos in its library were already imported correctly and available. Time Machine alone is worth the extra cost of an Apple computer. Whether you are upgrading to a new computer, replacing a hard drive (which you could do yourself in pre-Retina MacBooks) or recovering from data loss (for whatever reason) Time Machine seems to always work just as you would want it to work.

Excellent iMac

I have been using Macs since 1989 - starting with my first Apple IIe and I have never been disappointed. I’m loving the advancements. I use Macs in my business - and have upgraded with the new models as they come out.

Amazing 27” iMac

I’ve wanted to upgrade to a 27” iMac for the longest time now and when I saw that it would be cheaper to get a configured system here, I didn’t hesitate to go for it. I swapped out the 3.2 GHz i5 processor with a 3.4 GHz i7 processor, and I figured if I’m setting up a computer with that kind of power I might as well go all the way with the 3TB fusion drive instead of the 1TB SATA hard drive.

I have absolutely no regrets about all these upgrades, since my new 27” iMac just doesn’t seem to slow down. I usually have a couple of browsers open, each with more than fifteen tabs, some downloading high-res images and videos, while I do some work on Final Cut Pro, and while that would make my old iMac freeze up every half hour or so, I haven’t encountered that problem with my new iMac.

Looking forward to kicking up the memory to 32 GB too, since I found that little popup door on the iMac’s back panel. Hopefully I’ll be able to do the upgrade myself, once I find the right OEM RAM sticks.

Moved from PC to iMac

I am submitting this review after I realized that all of my applications that I use on my PC laptop could now be easily opened with the Mac. Notwithstanding, the Mac OS has always been able to open with some inconvenience PC files using Bootcamp, but it seemed always cumbersome to me. Now with Windows 8 with Parallels installed on my new iMac I am able to easily play into both realms without any problem. I am going to write a review on Parallels as well as I did a lot of research before making the move back to the Apple iMac 21.5 computer with Fusion drive. I needed to purchase a new computer anyway and finally decided on the newer iMac.

I didn't purchase my iMac on Amazon due to the fact that I did not see the option of buying the Fusion drive. This made a big difference to me as to speed and durability. I found the best price to be from MacMall. They had a special on the model I wanted with Windows 8 and Parallels preinstalled. I can offer some advice on those of you who purchase a new Mac with preinstalled software to watch for a special notice inside the shipping papers from the store that when you set the computer up a temporary password is included. After you log on as administrator, you have to change your password to one you can remember. Guess what, I didn't realize this and even contacted Apple support when I couldn't load my software when it asked for a admin password and I didn't realize this. The Apple tech really couldn't help me and told me he had to get a senior rep to help and then the line went dead. So much for even the so called best tech support rated computer company on the planet! I still think I am fortunate to have found the enclosed message after I got disconnected and was on my way to loading all of my applications.

All I can say is the new iMac 21.5 is absolutely fantastic now that I am getting used to the different operational features. I have spent the past few days learning the shortcut key strokes and figuring out the menus and file structure. With Windows 8 and Parallels installed it is a breeze opening up my Windows programs by just opening up the installed folder in the lower right side of the Apple dock and selecting the application I want to run. I don't even have to go to the Windows desktop which I find confusing with all of the tiles. I am waiting to see if the new Windows 8.1 might be an improvement.

21.5” iMac – amazing computer

I've been very satisfied with my 21.5" iMac. The first thing I noticed upon opening the box was how streamlined it looked - I didn't expect the main unit to be so thin. I was able to lift the iMac with one hand, which would come in convenient in the future. Overall, this desktop looked sleek and it looks great sitting on my desk in my home office.

Of course, the iMac isn't just pretty - its performance exceeded my expectations, too. The 8 GB of RAM and 2.7 Ghz processor make a heck of a difference, especially when I'm running applications like Photoshop or Lightroom and rendering HD videos. I've been enjoying the HD screen, too, the colors are vibrant and details are crisp, and glare is minimal as well. The GeForce graphics card and the loud speakers also make for more enjoyable gaming, so I’ve been using my iMac for games as well.

This iMac doesn't have an optical drive, but I scored a great deal on a Samsung external DVD writer, which works perfectly with my iMac.

I’m loving it!

I have had my new 27" iMac for less than two weeks, so this is a preliminary reaction to it.

I moved to the 27" iMac from a 2007 iMac, which was quite good itself; however, by comparison, the new model is, as you would imagine, MUCH faster!

Booting up happens so quickly, even with nearly a dozen apps and utilities I have autoloading, that I really can’t believe it. I haven’t timed it, but it’s ready to go in something under 30 seconds. I’m assuming it’s because of the fusion drive, which uses a combination of traditional hard drive and flash memory, with the most often used apps and docs stored in the flash memory.

Jus general use of applications is also really speedy. I just don’t find myself waiting for anything to happen; virtually everything I routinely do feels instantaneous or nearly so.

The screen is great—I wanted the larger screen because one of my primary uses of my computer is composing music for large ensembles (orchestra, concert band, etc.), and I need as much screen real estate as I can get so I can see as much of a score page at one time as possible. This give me that and then some, particularly as I use a second external monitor set up in Portrait Mode (vertically) for tall pages, to go with the Landscape Mode of the iMac’s built in monitor.

I also love the fact that even using routine apps (non-music, in my case), the large screen lets me easily have, say, Mail and iCal open side by side on the large monitor, with a third app open on the external monitor, making it easy to go back and forth between apps.

My only caveat about the monitor is something that’s inherent in its size: to get the full benefit of the added size, you have to use the default resolution of 2560 x 1440, which makes text smaller than what I was used to. Since I really like the extra size, I just moved the monitor a little closer to me, and that’s working fine so far. Of course, most apps also have some kind of zoom feature, and I sometimes use that, too. Also, the difficulty of reading smaller text (a difficulty that is admittedly exacerbated by my age—I’m not a 30-something and haven’t been for a long time!) is considerably mitigated by the excellence of the high resolution screen. Everything is VERY sharp and clear.

You can get all the benefits of speed and a fusion drive without getting the larger screen; but if you have a need for it, as I do, you won’t be disappointed.

Wonderful Product & Wonderful Service - Thank you!

I purchased this iMac knowing that I was getting the best of the best. When people hear "Apple", they automatically assume the product is going to be expensive or just down-right overpriced. This is simply not so. Using the details regarding the internal components within this amazing iMac, I ventured to a major online competitor’s website and selected the same/similar components to build a PC. The price difference was negligible; especially considering the iMac comes with a wonderful software bundle and the bluetooth keyboard and bluetooth Magic Trackpad. The 27" LED display on the iMac is unbeatable and the all-in-one form-factor is of the highest quality I have ever seen. Not only was the price of the custom-built PC very close, but when buying the Apple iMac, I know that Apple stands behind their product. If I were to have purchased each of those individual hardware components, not only would I have to assemble the machine, if I had any problems I would have to determine which component was failing and deal with each individual vendor of said component. With the Apple iMac, I can rely on Apple and Apple only to provide me with their customer/technical support (which has extremely high customer satisfaction ratings).

The Apple iMac comes with OSX, which is a certified UNIX. That means that the backbone of the software operating system extremely stable and practically virus free. No "blue screens of death" or cryptic error messages and no difficulty in adding external devices. If I want to add a device, I simply plug it in and it works. I don’t have to worry about installing some third party driver. It is a true plug and play experience.

The user interface of OSX is friendly and gorgeous. On top of the intuitive and easy to use operating system, I am comforted in knowing that it has full support for running major software packages such as Microsoft Office, Adobe Photoshop, and thousands of other programs people use on a daily basis.

Other than the fact that when purchasing this iMac I knew that I would be receiving a quality product - the service provided to me by the store was top notch. I have never been so satisfied with customer service from any other company. The staff made it abundantly clear that they cared about my satisfaction by keeping in contact with me to let me know when my item was available, when it shipped, and when I could expect it. They were completely accurate with all of their statements and followed through with all of their promises. They gladly answered my many questions with kindness and professionalism.

Because I purchased my iMac from this store when it was on a special sale, I was able to own this machine and purchase AppleCare along with it for actually less than what Apple.com would have charged for the machine alone.

I have, and will continue to recommend your online store and Apple to all of my friends and colleagues.

Thank you, for the greatest buying experience and for the very best computer on the market today.

Solid, reliable desktop

Never been a great fan of laptops or notebooks, so I got the new iMac as my first Apple product. I was very impressed with the iMac’s overall aesthetics. It’s slim and light enough so I can easily move it around when needed. A wide variety of ports are also conveniently located on the screen’s back, so connecting devices (even a secondary display) to the iMac is easy. The screen also provided an excellent display of colors without glare, even under a lot of ambient light.

The iMac’s performance is consistently good, too. Combined with 8GB of RAM, the quad-core i5 processor virtually eliminates any chance of lagging or crashing. Over the past couple of months, I’ve extensively used my iMac for gaming, and it’s never stuttered in terms of graphics quality, even at high FPS settings. The built-in speakers surprisingly provide good-quality audio, too. Previous PC users can use the native Migration Assistant utility to transfer files from PCs to the iMac. The process worked perfectly for me.

iMac: Another Great Apple Product

This is a fantastic desktop with excellent features. The monitor has wonderful resolution, more than enough for Photoshop needs and the video card is great for video editing. I always order the least amount of installed RAM, good quality RAM is available for a fraction of what Apple charges. I like to buy from this store because the shipping is free and unlike Apple, so far is tax free.

If you are planning a purchase of this model I would encourage you. With the changing intrusion of Federal and State governments, the tax free internet purchase may soon be a thing of the past!

Amazing, beautiful, elegant

Because the companies I've worked for were "PC" environments, I was always stuck using PCs. The kids and my wife got Macs, and loved them Eventually I realized how difficult my "PC" life was: constantly updating to protect myself from hackers, viruses and malware, flaky, slow and unpredictable machine behavior, problem after problem trying to keep things working. I had learned to live with and accept the PC hassle. Then my iMac arrived a week or so back.

I cannot imagine any comparison that does it justice: it's like I was crawling and now I can run marathons. Everything "just works". The machine is beautiful, elegant in every way. It lifts computer technology to a higher plane, where you can focus on what you want to do, not trying to keep a cranky system from flashing a blue screen and crashing before my eyes. Adios Windows.

Great Entry Level Machine

Upgraded my wife's older 21.5 inch iMac with a 2.4 Ghz Intel Core2Duo. This newer machine is very quiet, fast, and fits well in her work space. The large internal drive will hold all of her data plus much more. She was already using an external optical drive because of the volume of discs she burns. Apple's slot loaders have never been very reliable, and are a pain to replace. This new machine is noticeably faster than her old machine.

I do like the 21.5 inch systems because the 27 inch models are just too high and force me to tilt my head back to get my glasses to work best to read the text. This is a problem with many users with bi or trifocal lens glasses.

My next iMac will replace my older 24 inch 3Ghz Core2Duo. I'll probably save the price of the larger screen and choose a faster CPU, max out the ram, and get the fusion drive option. I put a 256GB SSD in the optical drive bay in my iMac, but it does mean that I have 2 volumes. The fusion drive will simplify my file management.

I am concerned about the difficulty of upgrading the ram or doing any maintenance on the inside of the machine. I'm already seeing tutorials about how to get inside these machine, and I work on Mac's and PC's as a business, so I'm pretty sure I'll be able to work on them in the future. Still, it would be a better idea that Apple designed some maintenance features in their design.

27" iMac with i7 3.4GHz, 16GB, 3TB Fusion, 680MX!

A long time Windows users with an aging system and an ever growing interest in photography, I was due for a system upgrade and had to decide between going Windows 8 or Mac OS X. Hearing that Windows 8 was an overhaul of the OS, I figured it was a learning curve either way...and with all the positive reviews (especially from photographers and videographers), I knew it was a great time to make the change! So I did exactly that and have been very pleased with my new iMac! The 27" screen is beautiful, but it does take some getting used to. The resolution and font sizing is small and with so much screen real estate you have to put the iMac farther away from you...so it's a conflicting situation (seeing the whole screen vs seeing the font). After a week, my eyes have adapted to the screen and all is well now. The transition to the layout of Mac OS X, and the Apple keyboard/mouse has gone smoothly and is already comfortable.

As far as a Windows OS vs Mac OS X comparison...the Mac OS X so far wins hands down. Application installation is a breeze. The startup time of this system is ridiculously fast...10 seconds maybe? My Windows system (even my new one at work...and I'm a software developer by profession, so the system is suitable for that line of work), I basically fire it up and go get a coffee, come back and it's still loading up. WORLD of difference!

For anyone thinking about giving this system a try, I'd highly recommend it!

Awesome

I love the iMac. It was so easy to set up. It's quick & easy to use. I can't believe I didn't get one years ago. I have continually had issues with all my PC's. I even have a laptop that is 1 1/2 years old that I can't even turn on now. I considered the Mac years ago but thought I couldn't afford it. We'll I've spent probably 3 x's the cost on my other computers between the purchase price & repairs. My other computers never ran as smoothly as the iMac, since the first day of purchase. It was definitely a great investment. If I could hook up a printer to the iPad, I'd get that instead of my laptop ( I need something on a lesser scale that the MacBook for portable use).

21.5" iMac Quad-Core i5-2.7Hz 4GB RAM

iMac arrived in excellent shape within 3 days after shipped. My wife especially enjoyed the speed with which the computer reacted to searches and email. She loves the larger monitor.

Her old HP laptop had gotten to the point where it would take several times to pull up photographs, emails, etc., even though we had had both our sons who repair computers and work on them look at it. Neither is familiar with Apple computers but were impressed with its performance. Both also pointed out that a Microsoft PC system could have been purchased at a huge reduction in cost.

I've used apple computers since the early 1980's and personally wouldn't have anything else. I was replacing the 24 inch iMac and was faced with the great divide between the 21.5 inch and the 27 inch. Cost steered me to the 21.5 inch and it does seem a little cramped after the 24 inch. The 27 inch would have been luxurious in a usage sense, but also would have dominated the desk, and since I use two screens it was overkill.

The speed of the new mac is dizzying, but the other advancement that has me excited is the new smart mouse which utilizes the same touch technology of the iPhone and iPad. It’s a joy to use, everything goes faster. All in all a good value!

27 iMac, Quad-Core i5, 2.7GHz. It's soo big!

I'm typing this on my new iMac with a 27" monitor. It is huge. I have been using my first Mac, an old G4, for so long that I could no longer update its internals or the apps. It has a small studio display. And compared to this new iMac it really seems small.

This new machine has so many features that I'm sure it will take me awhile to learn all of them. My only complaint is the tiny wireless keyboard which was supplied; I plugged in my old keyboard which has the numeral keys and the bank of numbers on the right side. I really like the new wireless mouse, though. It is quite a change from the old one.

I can't really say much more about this new iMac now, since I've only started to get acquainted with it. I will be able to be more inclusive in a while.

21.5" iMac Quad-Core Intel Core i5

I recently received the 21.5" iMac I ordered from MacMall, and am very happy so far with my purchase. The iMac is incredibly easy to set up and get going. The image on the Thunderbolt display is superb as is usual for apple products, and the computer itself is solid and well made.

I have had more than 10 Apple products, going all the way back to the original 128k mac, which I still have in working condition, and all have worked flawlessly from the start. I ordered my iMac online, and the process was very easy and the computer arrived quickly. I got everything I ordered at a good price and it arrived quickly and in good condition.
