The product is pretty good, just wish Best Buy would allow more customization. The Apple Store gives you the ability to add a track pad and additional ram. You can’t do it at Best Buy they only have a few different preconfigurations. The iMac is fast and quiet and recommend the product but if you want to customize it go to Apple.
The arrival of the new computer was right on time. the driver waited until i answered the door to pick up the delivery and asked if he could help getting it inside the door. he was very courteous. T packaging was top notch for safety of the product.
This iMac replaces a 2009 27” iMac. The smaller screen has less glare and more clarity. The new machine, once the cloud loads are complete and passwords established, is amazingly quick. Zoom and FaceTime enhanced by camera and mic. Navigation very similar to old (and no longer upgradeable) OS and closer to iPad capability. Able to use my old track pad - $125 buys a lot of batteries. Notable changes include no disc or camera card interface so media needs to load through Bluetooth, online or separate peripherals. Fingerprint recognition on keyboard just OK.
Very heavy package and the speed is fast. Very good display quality. You will need a USB hub for all your legacy devices.

Matt Baker the senior personal shopper and the Columbia, Md. manager are among the best that Best Buy have to offer. Both are 5 of 5 stars.
My review is solely based on them even though there were some difficulties not due to them.

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 andFull Review

Apple iMac 2021 review (24-inch)
The new Apple iMac 2021 (24-inch) is a breath of fresh air for the aging iMac line, arriving with a beautiful display, an excellent webcam and an array of bright new color schemes. These virtues seem especially welcome at a time when many of usFull Review

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 becameFull Review
A:AnswerUnfortunately, Best Buy does NOT price match Apple's Education Pricing. It's explicitly stated in their price match policy and I've tried before in the past with no success. You may have success if you price match at the store and the manager is in a good mood, but if you go through phone or online chat channels, they will not price match for you. Education Pricing would be directly through Apple.
