    My Dream Desktop

    |
    Posted .

    I have been wanting this iMac since, well forever. And the price was scary, but in all reality Apple makes great products. Now I've always had Dell or HP Computers so the transition to IOS has been a little challenge, but everyday I learn something new. I have even called Apple Care, I believe it what it's called. And the guy was VERY and I mean very helpful, informative and friendly. This computer is so slick it can fit anywhere in your home. I bought this iMac unexpectedly and need to get a nice desk for it, but in the mean time it's sitting on my dining room table. For a temporary solution it works. I love the keyboard it's so easy to type, I love the look of the icons. It's going to take a while to get used to all the ways to use it and figure out the tools and tricks and shortcuts. But finally after a few years of stalking it online on the Best Buy website it is finally all MINE! ;)

    Another great iMac!

    Posted .

    I purchased this for my youngest daughter for her high school graduation. She loves it! After having so many issues with PC's over the years I bought an iMac years ago and bought one for all 3 of my daughters. We are an Apple family now because they simply work great. This latest version just keeps getting better and has a fantastic 21.5" screen with plenty of memory. It comes with a great wireless keyboard. The only thing she wishes it had was a CD drive. It can be purchased as a separate item but why not build it in like in older models? It doesn't make a difference to save the thickness on a desktop model. That's the only negative that I can see with an otherwise excellent product.

    This is the first time that I've owned an Apple computer and I must say I love my iMac. It is fast, beautiful and the transition to Apple's operating system has been pretty simple. No complaints here.

    Best purchase ever

    |
    Posted .

    This is by far one of the best purchases I have ever got and one of the wisest. I was skeptical at first because it only had a 8GB memory. I did my research and went to Best Buy thinking I will come out with a PC. But after talking to a salesperson there (who seemed very knowledgeable), I decided to get this product. He states that he has both a PC and an Apple, by far his apple computer worked the fasted and most efficient. Based on my observation, most computers in 8GB whether it's a PC or an Apple, the prices averages around the same, not too far off in price from each other with apple just slightly higher. So if that's the case then I would rather invest in a computer that does the best of all, which is the Apple. I decided to go with the 8GB because apple has what they call a "Time Capsule with 1 TB" that I can purchase separately. So I don't need to buy such an expensive computer that has 1 TB in the hard drive. I can buy a Time Capsule separately and it still costs less then the Apple that has the 1TB. The best thing about buying the time capsule for the apple is that, not only can I use it for this iMac but I can also use it for all the apple products that I have in my house-plus it's a router. I own the MacBook too, so when I got this iMac it was not different to use at all. I use this computer "a lot" for school. I've only owned this computer for about a month and I use this computer daily with atleast 50hrs a week. I do lots of research and I take mostly online classes so this computer really is so efficient because I can multi-task with ease. There really is no need to buy a Microsoft Word software to download, because this iMac comes with a "Pages" program that I use for writing essays and research papers. I can open my professors attachments without a problem. This Pages program works like a Microsoft Word and a Publisher all in one, it has templates to help you with resumes, business letter, flyers, brochures, newsletters, etc. I am very impressed! It also has Keynote, to help you with organizing a professionally done presentation. Keep in mind that the Keynote imported from an Apple you will not be able to open in a PC. Most classes or conferences runs windows. You can however export your keynote to QuickTime (a video player) and then save that in your cloud or whatever email. The only thing is making sure the PC has QuickTime, which is easy and free to download. Over I am impressed with this iMac. This is one of the best investments I have made.

    Perfect for my needs

    Posted .

    I had been considering this iMac for a while and got an email from a Mac forum about a one day sale at Best Buy. Saving $120 made the decision happen. This is replacing a 9 year old homebuilt PC desktop running Windows 7. After having an iPad I realized I liked the Apple world and was ready to move away from Windows. This has plenty of power and storage for what I will use it for.

    Another great apple product

    Posted .

    I have been a fan of Apple products for many years. I wanted something with a bigger screen for all the reading I am doing for Grad School. This was perfect, amazingly clear screen, easy to use right out of the box and synchronizes easily with all of my other Apple products.

    Nice computer

    Posted .

    This was purchased as a gift to our daughter and son-in-law. We already had one from a couple of years ago. There also was a special one day sale which saved $120. The computer/screen is even thinner than ours from a couple of years ago. Of course, ours has the built in CD/DVD drive which is handy for copying our old CDs onto our iTunes music files. The computer will be well used. It replaces an old macmini they were using. Only trouble we ever had with ours was a burnout of the power supply after an electrical storm, which was fixed by a local authorized repair shop. I noticed the new one came preloaded with Pages, which we had to purchase separately. Mac rules!

    My first Mac. Excellent product.

    |
    Posted .

    As a non-tech type person, I found the set up of the MAC to be extraordinarily easy. It is very user friendly and guides you step by step. Since I am a little OCD, I have to say I LOVE the lack of wires. Wireless keyboard and mouse have a very minimalistic/modern look. The only issue I had initially was some difficulty with transferring files from my previous hard drive. That wasn't the computer's issue, just my lack of expertise in the area. Watched a youtube video or two.....and problems solved. The syncing w/my iPhone 4s......easy. Much of which is done automatically through your apple ID. Initially, I was concerned about the price differential to some windows products, however I couldn't be happier to have made the decision I did. In my case, the Mac was $150 more than the Lenovo I was looking at....and I believe the extra cash was worth it.....and will be worth it long term.

    I was able to get the iMac for $999, Could not pass on this deal. Gentleman working the floor was extremely helpful with the purchase. FYI, the new macs do not have a disc drive, you have to purchase an external disc drive in order to play your cd's or any other software that you may have laying around. I have some old music I would like to import so I had to buy the external disc drive. Wonderful computer In general!

    If your an Apple fan you will love this iMac 21.5!

    Posted .

    I'd been a PC user since the 80's(Yes. I'm old,) and have had numerous Intel powered computers running Windows as far back as 98. More recently, a Compac laptop and two HP laptops, one with AMD. Then I bought a Gen 2 iPod and later an iPad Mini for myself. Two years ago an iPhone 5 for my wife. I liked it so much that two weeks later I bought an iPhone 5 for myself. I was hooked. A friend of my calls it "The Apple Web" because we get trapped into buying one Apple product after another. I was really reluctant to buy the iMac because it was several hundred dollars more than a similarly equipped HP. But Best Buy online had a four hour sale one Saturday advertising it at $849.99, down from $1049.99! I just couldn't pass up such a deal. My local store matched the price and I was set. I'm an avid internet shopper but when it comes to expensive electronics, it's really nice to see the item in person before buying and talk to someone knowledgeable about the product. As far as using the iMac? What a dream. I'm can be listening to Pandora through the really clear built in speakers or connect via Bluetooth to my Beats Pill, all while working on photos stored on the iCloud, texting or even answering the phone. I just feel bad when a day goes by and I haven't used it to discover even more amazing things that it can do. My only suggestion to apple would be to enable all iPhone apps to also work on the iMac.

    Great computer!

    This is the best desk top computer we have ever had. It has plenty of memory, has a great picture, and there's no tower to mess with. Only downfall is there is no disc drive. I purchased one at best-buy for around $40 (it doesn't have to be an Apple brand). One thing to remember; if you have anyone in College, make sure you download the Student discount for a computer (follow directions under the "service" tab on main page). The computer was on sale for around $100 off. With the student discount we got the computer for around $850!!

    Our Second iMac

    |
    Posted .

    We bought our first iMac earlier this year, so when the old PC with Vista finally bit the dust, we had to get another new computer. Yes, there are less expensive computers, but again, this one was so easy: open the box and plug it in. Extra space in the den now, as we don't have the clunky hard drive. No more worries about it overheating in the summer. No viruses.

    I dont know how but I caught this iMac on sale for $899. It sells refurbished for that price, so to have it BRAND NEW from best buy at this price was EVERYTHIIIIING!!!. Omg, first let me say, I'm a blogger and have been blogging from my macbook pro for 4 years now and I cant tell you how much my LIFE has changed because of this thing. My wrist started hurting using my little trackpad on my laptop and editing just became tedious and cumbersome. BUT NOWWWWWW?????.....everything is soooo much better! Editing, videos, pictures, browsing the web, researching, saving docs, everythiiiiing! The screen is huuuuuuge so it makes for an insane experience and an insanely enjoyable one. It usually take me 2-3 hours on my macbook to edit a 5 min video on final cut and with the iMac, I can get it done in half the time now, roughly about 1.5 or just at an hour most of the time. I've never had an imac so for me, again, this is completely life changing. So everything on it is wireless which makes for a great appearance but an even better work station and such ease of use. I kept asking myself, where the hek have I been?!! It's portable, lightweight, and gorgeous!!!. I recently moved so packing it was a breeze and I was able to carry it on the plane with me. The picture quality to ME is great, I've never had retina display so it didn't really matter nor was it necessary for me. Besides, my eyeballs are happy with this. Also if you're wondering which one to get as far as the screen size? the 21-inch is PERFECT. It's so big for me that my hand slides off the desk sometimes while draggin the mouse across the screen. I have a huge desk from Ikea that is about 60 inches in width, so you really need the desk space with this thing. Anything over 21-inches, I think is too much unless you're just on that level in life. But for the average person, blogger, or youtuber, this thing is BEYOND amaaaaaaazing! Best Buy totally got me when they had it on sale for black friday for $899, never seen it this low on ANY site so it was a no brainer and absolute MUST for me. Love love love it!

    The cost is more but worth it.

    This was my first Mac, was going to get Windows operating system. I have used Windows at home and at work for the last eleven years. Wish we had Mac at work, will not go back at home. It took a little while to learn but much better than Windows. It was easy to set up, automatically connected to my comcast email. Only one plug to connect and plenty of USB ports. It came with a wireless keyboard and mouse, but I bought another keyboard that had the number pad on the right side because I use it a lot. Keyboard also had two extra USB's on the ends of it, which were useful.

    I helped my grandparents purchase this computer as a PC replacement and set it up for them. The recent price drop made it much more affordable. The in-store help was also top notch.

    This desktop replaced a ten year old dell. The dell gave up the ghost 3 years ago and have been using laptops and iPads since. Got the Mac at a good price and have been in love. So simple to use and no hangups at all. Used to be android and windows but now only Apple in my home. My wife says that if her job switched to Apple they would be so much more productive. She was on the Mac for 3 days straight. The ability to do her pictures and projects is worth the price. Best desktop we have ever had. Period
