      Great Computer, Amazing Screen

      Posted

      • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

      I Got this computer mainly for my wife, but I have enjoyed using it as well. I was origonally weary about purchasing an iMac. My wife only uses Apple products, so I know the quality of the build. The reason I was weary is because the hardware is often behind the curve, at least for the price point where apple computers are normally at. Once I got to researching this new iMac, I was throughly surprised by it. Comparing the internals of this machine to other all-in-ones, I was surprised by how good it is, and a 27 inch 5k monitor will run you around $1200 alone. That is what sold me on this new iMac. Apple did a great job when they upgraded the internals to the newest generation (7th) of intel processors, and a 4gb graphics card, makes this all-in-one a great machine, and well worth the price, when you consider the screen. My wife mostly uses the computer for Netflix, and other streaming services, email, and a little bit of photo editing. This machine handles it all well, to tell the truth, this computer is a little under utilized with what she does, but we wanted the 27 inch screen. I have also tested some games on it, I play diablo 3, eso, and a few other games. The computer handles it well, except for some areas in eso where a lot of other players are. If you really want to use an iMac for gaming, I would recommend the next version up, it has the intel 7600K i5, vice the 7600 i5 in this version. The 7600K has benchmarks at around 8% better, and that iMac also has an 8Gb 580 vs the 4Gb 575. While this may not seem like a big deal, the 580 has a faster clock, and obviously more memory. Another upgrade I would recommend is the RAM, I plan to put another 8Gb in this computer, but if you are using it for more intense gaming, or video editing you can put up to 64Gb in this version, and the one above it. The $1799 iMac only supports 32Gb, I believe this is due to the processor used, but I am not sure about that. All-in-All I am very happy with this purchase, and would highly recommend the new model iMac. If you do buy it directly from apple, do not purchase the ram upgrade from apple, they charge $200 per 8Gb which is insane, you can get 32Gb of ram (2 16 Gb sticks) for around $200, search amazon or new egg, and have a total of 40Gb. If you are not familiar with computers or RAM all the 27 inch iMacs, use PC-4 19200, 2400 MHz, DDR4, 260 pin RAM according to apple's website. It is very easy to change out the ram, there is a panel on the back side of the computer that pops out, and gives you access to the ram slots. Below are links that I have included for the benchmarks I found, as well as the technical page from apple. i5 7600 vs i5 7600K: http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i5-7600-vs-Intel-Core-i5-7600K/3890vs3885 radeon 575 vs 580: http://gpuboss.com/gpus/Radeon-Pro-580-vs-Radeon-Pro-575 apple specs: https://www.apple.com/imac/specs/ ram changing intrusions: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201191

      I've been a "pretty much" exclusive Mac user since 2011. I say "pretty much" because I do still have to use Windows to run a couple of specific programs for work. I've owned and used a few different Mac laptops and desktops, and have been very happy with all of them. This machine is no different. The display is large and has excellent resolution. The Magic Keyboard and Magic Mouse 2 provide excellent control and input. The performance specs of the hardware exceed any sort of day-to-day requirements that anyone could have and will stretch into the higher-performance categories when needed. The 5K Retina machines also allow for some user upgrades (like RAM) which can be very helpful. I am giving four stars because of the following specific reasons: - Price. This is an Apple thing. I appreciate that Apple requires everyone to sell their products at basically the same price. What I dislike is that the required price is way too high for what the components are. Then again, the machine will get software updates for years to come. - Lack of hard drive upgradeability. Changing out the mechanical / spinning drive to a completely solid state one isn't something that I can do as the end user even though I am perfectly capable of not only doing the physical installation but the transfer of data and even re-installation of the operating system. This is coupled with the fact that Best Buy does not carry any of the machines with full SSD (Solid State Drive) technology - if you want that, you have to buy it direct from Apple. - Mis-leading specifications on the Best Buy site. Every single iMac lists "SSD" as the hard drive type on Best Buy's site and this is completely false. These machines use what is called a "Fusion" or "Solid State Hybrid Drive" (SSHD), yet Best Buy lists them as SSD. The difference is that the SSHD that the machine uses is a combination of a mechanical / spinning drive AND a SSD. Only about 10% of the total storage resides on the SSD. The operating system and the most frequently accessed files will remain on the SSD - everything else ends up on the mechanical drive. SSD's are great for lower power use and potentially longer life before a possible failure. SSD's are also generally faster for reading data (booting up, opening docs, etc.). The SSHD provides some speed-up, but the bulk of your data will end up being on the mechanical drive. The bottom line: If you're looking for a well-performing, reliable, and flexible Mac - you've found it. If you need a high-performance version of a Mac, go directly to Apple to get one with the heavy upgrades already built in.

      Best Computer I've Owned

      Overall performance: I bought the late 2017 iMac after trying the previous model (mid 2015) for video editing. The 2015 iMac would randomly freeze up and restart when I either had Parallels and several other things running or when I was editing video with Camtasia. I exchanged it for the 2017 model with it’s more powerful video card and improved processor and the problem completely disappeared. I've had it about a month and it hasn’t frozen once. I can have Camtasia, Final Cut Pro X and Parallels all open together, and it runs like a Swiss watch. I upgraded the memory to 24GB (using third party memory). With that upgrade, I have yet to notice any lag no matter what I have running. I don’t do gaming, so this review is based solely on video editing, database work, and MS Office. Fusion Drive: Another difference between this and my 2015 model is the Fusion drive. The 2015 model, without a Fusion drive, required over 6 hours to set up from a Time Machine backup. (I went to bed before it finished.) The 2017 iMac finished in a little under 90 minutes from the same backup. Brighter Screen: The reviews all say that you can’t see much of a difference with the brighter screen of the newer model, but I noticed it as soon as I turned it on. I wouldn’t upgrade only for the new screen, but you will see some difference if you are upgrading from an older iMac. Memory Upgrade: If you are going to do more than basic office tasks, it is worth getting the 27” model over the 21” for the user upgradeable memory alone. Third party memory works fine and is much less expensive than Apple’s. Installing the memory yourself won’t void the warranty as long as you don’t damage the machine in the process (I called Apple just to make sure). Conclusion: I’ve owned a lot of computers over the years, mostly Windows laptops. Nothing I’ve ever used holds a candle to this. Apple got it right with this one.

      I bought this because my 2010 iMac was randomly going to a black screen. I had recently solved a long term problem where the old iMac would either lock up or go to the pinwheel of death multiple times a day, where I had to cold boot. I resolved it after a year by upgrading memory and later upgrading software to Sierra. Things were fine again with my old machine for 6 months... until the random black screens started. I could hear videos talking in background so I knew the machine was not shutting down, just the video. I called apple support (800-MY-APPLE) thinking they would ask me to pay for support but they did not, it seems apple is smart enough as a company to keep their client base happy and educated. After 3 calls and resetting things I decided to stop trying to fix it and bought this new machine. It is good, no question, but not noticeably faster than my 7 year old i3 w/12GB ram. And this one has random issues also after just 3 weeks. 1. Safari randomly shuts down about 2-3X a week. 2. Now my financial stock trading platform, which never experienced conflicts or issues with the old system, is closing down about 2X/week. The machine is a week past return so I am hopeful Apple will see all my reports and get these 2 bugs worked out. With all the resources this company has, there is no reason for unstable system software. Other than that it works fine, but not much faster than the old system. Screen is nice but not something I find noticeably improved either. I just want a decent, stable system.

      First I realize that different people look for very different things in computers, but this is a great all around computer for my families household. It has a large beautiful display and while I am more used to working on dual screen set-ups at work, that is certainly something that can be set-up here after buying an additional screen. The ports on the back are a bit of a pain but I also bought an adapter that brings the ports to the front and is a professional grade solution that looks like it's meant to be there. I do wish that it had the expanded number of ports that the IMac Pro has, but then I guess that's why people end up paying pro prices. I like that you are able to expand the amount of onboard RAM in this model (which I already did). That makes it better for doing photo and video editing which thus far it hasn't had any issue with. Most of the other computing devices in our home are also Apple products so this fits right into the existing ecosystem and integrates seamlessly. Overall, my family and I are very happy with this computer.

      I have been getting Apple computer products since 1980, starting with a 32K Apple 2Plus. I have lost track of how many Macs, Mac Pros, other Apple products I have had, but I currently own an Apple phone, a lovely new iPad, and this great new Mac "27desktop computer. I also kept my 13 inch Mac portable in case I need more portability than my iPad will supply. I have a damaged retina, and I needed a very large screen to be able to enlarge print so that I could see it easily. This new computer fills that need nicely. Photos on the screen are enormously colorful, and I just love using this computer. I highly recommend it, even if you do not have diminishing sight, as it is easy to use, and has lots of wonderful features! Worth every $!

      As an graphic design artist I was driven away by the mediocre upgrades by Apple. I switched to Windows desktop and didn't look back, that was 3 years ago. I finally caved in with the thought I can always return it if I don't like it. Compared to the windows machine I have now, I have to say this machine is incredible. The snappiness and responsiveness is incredible. My apps run faster and the OS is amazingly smooth and intuitive. As well as the integration with my iOS and tvOS is seamless. I wondered why I had move away.

      I purchased the “lastest model” last July brand new, because my 27” mac 2014 harddrive crashed. Just paid off this 3,000 paper weight. The day after I paid it off the black screen came up took it to Apple to repair it now I’m going in every week for different issues. I don’t run the computer hard have no games on there and it just crashes Apple said it was a motherboard issue. Very frustrating I want a new computer!!! This will be my last Apple.
