Hands down the best computer I have ever purchased. I love the customer service I received. They also got me extra storage and I just love having this addition to my business everything was smooth. The only down side is there’s no usb spot so you will have to connect to everything wireless that doesn’t use the new kind.
I have always wanted an iMac and this was my first Mac purchase ever. The unboxing experience itself was so satisfying and felt so smooth. The Mac has been running very well and it sounds and loads amazing! I’m finally able to play on high graphics and have multiple windows open without getting overloaded. Took a bit getting used to as I have mainly used windows products before but I have found the experience quite satisfying and I can’t seem to get away from my desk and Mac sometimes.
I would recommend this to a friend

By far an incredible iMac
Owned for 2 weeks when reviewed.
After two weeks of great use, I am proud to say that I am really happy with my purchase! By far one of the best iMac Apple has ever created. I came from using a MacBook Pro and the M1 chip really does make a big difference compare to Apple's previous intel processor. I love how thin the hardware is. The model that I got comes with two cooling fans, so make sure to get the 8GB memory since they come with two fans.
Bought my first Apple computer the IMac, loving it but I think my wife loves it more she uses the finger touch login keyboard. I don’t even have access to my own computer like she has! Lol get it you will enjoy it!
As a Windows pc user just migrating to Mac pc, I’ll se I very impressed with this masterpiece of a machine. It’s very fast in processing, stylish, easy to use, the speakers are very good and your screen is crystal vibrant. I can’t say enough, I love it

APPLE IMAC M1 REVIEW: THE ALL-IN-ONE FOR ALMOST EVERYONEThis is an iMac unlike any other iMac we've seen before, and it all comes down to the M1 chip.

Apple iMac 24-Inch ReviewThe 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
Apple 24-inch M1 iMac reviewLast September we concluded our 27-inch iMac review thusly, “The big open question mark here is what the future looks like for the iMac — and how long we'll have to wait to see it. That is, of course, the perennial question for hardware upgrades,
Here's how the new M1 iMac compares to the Intel iMacsAfter over a decade with the same design, the most exciting release for many at Apple's Spring Loaded event was the totally redesigned all-in-one Mac . From the move to Apple Silicon and bright new colors, to a super-thin design, larger 24-inch
A:AnswerYou cannot upgrade the memory (RAM) and storage. Buy the system that has the right amount of memory and storage for yourself up-front. In the worst case scenario, at least in regards to storage, you can get an external hard drive if you run out of space but with memory, there are no work-arounds. With that said, 8 GB of memory (RAM) is enough for many users. If you are doing word processing/web browsing/typical day to day work on a computer, 8 GB is plenty.
But if you are doing more advanced/demanding tasks, like photo/video editing, then I would recommend 16 GB of RAM. As for storage, see how much of your computer's storage you are using now. Will you be storing lots of media, like photos and videos? In that case, buy a model with more storage up front or if you can't afford that right now, buy an external hard drive later on when you run out of space and really need it. Hope that helps.
A:AnswerNo.. the included keyboard with the iMac does not have the number keypad @ the right. I wish it did or at least give the option as I also needed the keypad to use for work. You have to buy it separately for $120+.
A:AnswerYou can connect this iMac to 1 external monitor. Make sure you have the right cable/adapter to connect. The HDMI to Thunderbolt cable I used with my last iMac worked with this new M1 iMac as well.
