      Great desktop for apple lovers

      When I was a kid my family had a big clunky desktop that we all used (as long as my older sister wasn't on the phone, man dial up internet sucked) but since then I've always used laptops, and thought I would never need a desktop. I got a Macbook Pro a few years ago and it got me through my undergrad, but I found myself getting frustrated with the screen size and the fact that I had to hunch over while typing 30+ page papers didn't help things. I use iMacs at my university for editing and other things, so I was familiar with these machines, and I have to say that buying one was one of the best purchases I've made. The monitor is sleek and crystal clear, the colors are sharp, and the mouse is super responsive. The only problem I had was a little hiccup when I first installed Home Office for Mac and Word crashed the first time I opened it, but I haven't had problems with it or any other program since. I find the mouse and keyboard to be comfortable to use and they both hold a charge for weeks at a time, and I love that I can tilt the monitor to make it more comfortable to look at without having to put anything under it to lift it up. Another great feature is that I have it synced up to my iPhone so I am able to text and answer phone calls right from my desktop, which I find limits the temptation to mess around on my phone instead of getting work done.

      The latest iMac

      I bought my first computer, an iMac, in 1997. Since then my family bought only Apple products. Only one of the Apple computers died a "natural death" - old age (my first iMac, 8 y.o.). The Notebooks eventually had water, coffee or beer spilled on the keyboard - all preventable. When considering the replacement of my latest Notebook (8 y.o., another drowning) it made sense to go back to the iMac. I rarely ever took my Notebook off my desk at home. The iMac's larger screen and data storage capacity made the most sense. Best Buy had the computer in stock and waiting for me after I placed my order online. I unpacked the box, plugged the iMac in, powered up, and life went on. It was trivial to upload my applications and data from my back-up external hard drive. Old computer died on a Friday night, the new computer was up and running on Saturday morning. Thank you, Best Buy, for providing the immediate availability of my new iMac at a great price. And as always, the operating system is so intuitive that my adjustments to all the upgrades were seamless. PC's have improved tremendously, but I will always buy a Mac for it's ease of use and durability .... just don't spill any liquid on those Notebook keyboards.

      Has a flaw from the factory, have to swap it out!

      I've never had a Mac Before or Apple product of any type. I always used machines like HP and most recently an ASUS. I have been using lap tops but decided that maybe a Desktop would work best for me especially at my buy in price. I heard raves about Macs and decided it was time to give it a try after I only got less than 2 years with my $1000 Asus. Overall the switch went better than I expected. The apple seems user friendly and many things I use have short cuts that just take some getting used to. A lot of my questions were answered with a simple internet search. The keyboard seems fine, though some people said it was small. It took longer to unbox it than to be surfing on the web with it. I was amazed as every other new computer I bought always took a day to get up and going. My only real complaint is that right out of the box there is a 2 inch band of pixels that are discolored down the right side of the screen. I called and was told to bring it back and they would swap it out for a new one. I checked the website and they are out of stock, but will have more in, in a couple of days so I'll have to swap it out then. If not for that, I would give it 5 stars. Hopefully the new one is good to go. If so I'll probably stick to Macs in the future.

      Ok so back story, I have always been a PC guy and have had about 3 HP laptops that I liked very much, never failed me until they started to run slow each time. I was also an Android user as well but when my Samsung S8+ failed me, I ditched it and got an iPhone 8+. Liked it so much I thought since I need a new computer and I'm not going to school anymore I wanted a nice desktop why not give Apple a shot. Come in early access to Black Friday shopping. Found an iMac within my price range and decided to pull the trigger. Glad I did. Just the unpacking of the computer was something of beauty. Everything feels top notch and says quality. From the nice touches of aluminum on the body of the screen, the wireless keyboard and mouse that come already paired to your computer from the box was a nice touch. it is a bit of getting used to having to learn a new OS but you get used to it. A couple of google searches to figure out the same key short cuts on the windows key board helped out. I definitely would say this computer is worth it. Looks aesthetically pleasing and functions perfectly for my needs.

      Bought this at the store open box. It was missing the cable to charge to the bluetooth mouse and keyboard. No big deal right? No. I called the "store" but some central call center picked up and took 3 separate calls to others at store and higher managers to resolve a simple item missing from their open box computer. Definitely not up to the Apple Store standard. Yeah I got the same deal as refurbished from Apple.com but BB service was sub par. $1000 computer was unusable because they didn't put the proper components back in the box. They should have sent me another one but I had to go back to the store to get the cable. As for the Mac, I hate the mini keyboard without the number pad. Desktops need the full keyboard. But other than power, no cables. Very clean and easy installation.

      I always enjoyed our older I MAC and once it broke I did not hesitate to buy another one. This one is even better so far then the older model with better features for storing and finding your photos. My only real complaint is it does not have a CD drive like the old one did. I guess some people do not use them anymore and apparently you can purchase a separate one to go along with it so I have heard but I used mine quite a bit to burn photos on to CDs and to load my music CDs into the computer to have there as well so I was pretty irritated to see the lack of the feature.

      I was surprised, for an Apple product, its kind of slow. I had it less then 2 weeks and had to contact Apple support, the computer kept freezing when using iMovie and the chess game, it still freezes with the chess game. I've tried several times to upgrade to High Sierra without success, the download keeps failing for some reason. apple support wasn't any help at all. "Genna" recommended running it in safe mode...I can't believe she said that and kinda blew me off. I'm somewhat disappointed in Apple. I guess a rot†en apple is still better then PC.

      Incredible value and investment

      I’ve owned macbooks macbook pros and iMacs. I have to say the iMacs are in my opinion, absolutely the best Value of any apple product. My last imac lasted 8 years and had no issues. The value of apple products do not depreciate like other computers. These devices are investments, if you can afford it make the purchase you will have a solid computer, stunning design, tons of compliments and when your ready to upgrade you more than likely will get money back if you try to sell it. These new iMacs are as thin as can be and they got rid of all battery enabled keyboards and mice which is a great! Everything is charged via lightning cable. Best buy had a great black friday deal on this computer and shipping was quick. You can’t go wrong!
