I had a 12-year old iMAC and needed to upgrade. I did my research and when I read the specs on the new 24" iMAC, decided this was the perfect time to upgrade my computer. I love it and am very satisfied with my decision. It is very similar to my older iMAC, but with more bells and whistles and very user friendly. I selected the 512 GB model for maximum storage and I have 4 ports on the back which is very convenient. Great speaker sound! Another plus is that the keyboard and mouse are quickly charged from the computer instead of using batteries. The only drawback is that the ports have been upgraded for the smaller new cables and I am not able to charge my older devices from my new Mac or plug in my external hard drive because they all use the older cables with larger plugs. Overall I am thrilled and Best Buy matched the price of a competitor, so I received an excellent price.
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.
This desktop is nothing short of amazing. Apple never fails to design an absolutely beautiful machine. As a full time student working from home, I’m willing to invest in anything to make my life easier and motivate me to do my best. This truly does both. The webcam is beyond clear, and looks amazing for video calls. Apple connectivity from my iPhone, to iPad, and to my MacBook is seamless. Downloads are lightning fast. I just have nothing bad to say at all about this desktop. I hope it lasts me for years to come.
We bought this to replace our 2012 Mac Mini that was no longer receiving updates but otherwise worked well. This iMac is a speed demon for everyday tasks. TouchID is great for purchases and quick logins. The display is better than any regular one you can buy under $700. In the pic, you can see reflections that look purple, but when the display is on, we never get a glare.
We also appreciate that the keyboard and mouse are rechargeable. We’re over 1 month in and still not in need of a recharge. Our old Magic Mouse would use 2 batteries every week if left on.
We’re supplementing the onboard storage with a 2TB SSD drive to hold our photo libraries. This makes the relatively small 512GB that came with it workable for us. If you have big photo libraries, research how to move them to an external drive and save the money. Just make sure it’s a fast SSD.

Absolutely love it
Owned for 1 month when reviewed.
Absolutely love it. Don’t hesitate if you’re on the fence. I was going from a 2015 MacBook Air to this. The screen size/ clarity is comparatively amazing. So far I love this computer. Just wish Best Buy had given me the option to purchase it with the matching green magic track pad
I have never been a Mac person, but I happened to inherit an old iMac and fell in love with the sleek design and large beautiful screen. When it got too outdated to run old programs I decided to take the plunge and replace it with the newest version. It runs so smoothly and has that same beautiful large display screen. 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. 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 and

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 will need an external device. The new iMac trades off some of its all in one appeal for a sleek profile.. Best Buy will be happy to sell you the product under $80 which shoes up as a recommended add to your purchase.
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.
