    Fed up with Windows

    |
    Posted .

    My first experience with any Apple device. There has been a bit of a learning curve, but not to bad. Fires up so much faster, the great graphics you hear about, and no constant restarting. I can still use Work and other Window's programs on it. So far a major improvement, and no desire to want to throw it through the nearest window. ;) The mouse is great, the keyboard is way too small for my big hands. I will get a Logitech board later.

    Great Giant All in One

    Posted .

    This is basically the best, most sleek way to get a mac. I have had numerous macbook pros and mini's, but this runs smoother and with less heat. I did have to change my speakers because this took up so much desk real estate. That said it was worth it, I have a monster monitor, and the ability to change the RAM (you can't in the 21.5 version). The monitor is very bright and the colors look good. The only downside is the built in speakers, which I am not using; and the high cost. It is also very heavy, but in a quality way. It looks very nice on just about any desk but I went out and ordered an wall mounted desk from best buy by Prepac. Also a very solid unit, and the 27 inch takes up the entire main opening, making it look like it was custom made for it.

    Great buy for price/package

    I purchased this iMac just prior to the new computers coming out by Apple. I'm happy with the quality, speed and picture size. The new iMac was out of my price range so I got the most for my money. If price is a concideration but you want the most for your money, this is the way to go. Best Buy shipped the product immediately and I was up and running quickly.

    So far after doing 1 video editing it been working flawlessly! It's amazing and better than expected. Honestly, the 5k display and this display aren't too different. I'm happy with my purchase.

    i finally transitioned from a PC to an iMac. It's exactly what I expected from Apple. I recently watched Avatar, the Extensed version and the picture was amazing. I have much to learn about my iMac, I'm glad I finally got it. Sincerely; Joey

    The 27" display is awesome. Moving all my business information from my MacBook Pro was extremely simple. I now have all the Apple products and love them all.

    Finally making the switching to a Mac!

    |
    Posted .

    So after weeks of pondering not only whether to switch from Windows to a Mac, but whether to get a desktop or a laptop, I finally made the transition. I've been a Windows user from the get go, I've used windows 3.1 and every other version (seems like Microsoft gets every other version right: 98 - good, Win ME - bad, XP - good, Vista - bad, Won 7 - good, Win 8 - bad). I also use it at work, so moving away from Windows wasn't easy, especially since I'm very used to the Windows version of Excel. A big part of the reason was Windows 8, I love windows 7, but couldn't see upgrading to windows 8. I don't think I should have to re-learn how to use an operating system! Enough about that...iMac: I wanted an iMac with an i7, but it wasn't available unless you order directly from the apple site, and since budget was a concern, I decided to purchase the i5 they had on sale at best buy. Combined with education promotions and rewards, Best Buy price is hard to beat. The operating system is fairly intuitive, once you get used to the way apple has it setup, it's easy to use. And being able to sync across your devices (iPhone, iPad etc) makes it very convenient. I can get my iMessages, update my calendar, save Pages or numbers documents and it's all synced across my devices. It's like the iPhone, everything just works together well. I purchased this for photography and was planning to use Aperture on it. Photos look stunning on the 27" display! It's not retina, but still looks amazing! The best part is what I print on my canon large format printer looks almost exactly as I see it on the screen! This wasn't the case on my Lenovo laptop, making it frustrating when editing photos. All in all, I'm very happy with this purchase. I would definitely recommend. Making the switch for any Windows user, yeah, you have to re-learn the keyboard shortcuts for the operating system and any Microsoft office programs, but it's worth it. If I can't figure something out how to do something, there's so much information online. Oh and 1 more thing, their phone support (90 days free I believe) is excellent! I have never experienced such excellent phone support from a tech company (10 years ago! Dell was great, but not this good). Hold times at apple support is less than 5 minutes, people are friendly and don't have any heavy accents! Just buy it!

    Fantastic Product

    |
    Posted .

    Coming from a PC, I can say it's beem an entirely new experience. A very good one at that. The beautiful screen resolution makes the resolution of our pictures pop, sucking us into their beauty. The processing power right out of the box is more than plenty to endure even the most strenuous editing of pictures to videos. However, with that said, adding an additional bus of RAM (helps with processing speed, allowing programs to run much more smoothly) up to the max of 32gB will enhance your overall experience. That's not all this computer is great for though! Do you have kids? Maybe grandchildren? If so, then I'll ask you why would you expose the to a PC (unless their big gamers whom like to customize and upgrade often)? The parental controls are amazing on the MAC. They're so intuitive: -time monitoring (when can the get on, until what time at night, or maybe even a set amount of hours and minutes). -application filtering (you have an app you don't feel comfortable with your child using? No problem, just disable it for their user!) -website filtering; pornography, manipulative, and discouraging...no matter your dislikes , you can filter them all! Overall, it's a fantastic computer that will last for years, the construction, software, and even hardware blend together creating one hell of an experience. Fantastic switch from PC to MAC.

    Love the all in one desk top with HUGE screen!

    Posted .

    My family would tell you that they have wanted an Apple computer FOREVER. To be fair I should have one of them completing the review and they would give it a great one. But I made the purchase so bear in mind that the review comes from the perspective of the family tech dinosaur. My husband works in Database Admin and my daughter is a middle school student. They need an excellent home computer that is able to connect with work and school daily. Neither has had any difficulty. Losing the tower, great picture and a world of options to explore...all good! The only drawback thus-far is the keyboard. I have RA and have used to an ergonomic keyboard both at home & at work for years. A keyboard the size of a laptop's is very uncomfortable to use. The spouse and daughter have no complaints so I would not discourage anyone nor decrease my score based on that. The $$ was a deterrent but the Best Buy payment plan made that problem go away. Anyone want to purchase a year old, excellent condition Dell?

    Great first Apple Computer

    |
    Posted .

    This is my first apple computer that I have ever purchased. What i love about it is the size of the screen and the clarity of the screen. Playing games such as Starcraft 2 or flight simulator X (with a partitioned hard drive) is incredibly responsive and the dedicated 1Gb graphics card makes it look crisp and cleaner than any Microsoft product I've purchased before. the already installed apps such as iPhoto and mail are a great way for for my iPhone and iPad to stay in-sync without any system crashes. Overall this is a great computer. I still have a lot to learn about it but I feel I will enjoy using it!

    These machines made my staff into Apple converts.

    |
    Posted .

    when I told my staff that we were going to be switching from PC based computers to Apple products you could've heard a pin drop in the office. The staff had only ever worked in pCs in the past and despite the network difficulties, Internet miss adventures, and blue screens of death, They were not convinced of the need for the change. They had all used Apple products before in the way of iPhones and iPads but in their opinion apples were too expensive for what they felt the office required for day-to-day business. Within two days my receptionist had figured out so many of the unique benefits of the Apple platform that she finally agreed with her husband to make the next computer purchase an Apple product. The office manager was the most resistance of the entire bunch. But after being forced to use it for a week she found not only was it more reliable but despite being a low powered processor compared to the higher and configured to own models on the Apple webpage, was much faster but anything we had had before. Beside to speed they're all impressed with the sound quality and picture quality despite not being a retina display. They all love the form factor, with the exception of difficult to access USB and SD cards on the rear. The security of the platform has also been remarkable as well as the completeness of supporting software within the operating system itself. Not including the antivirus program (which really was only for E-mail attachments to other computers) we had half a dozen programs that we did not have to buy because the additional features in OS X had provided all of the same features for free. Our last set of computers started failing only after two years and based on our experience with examining windows eight systems, there was no way we are going to go with a PC again this year.

    First iMac

    Posted .

    I have an iPhone and love it so I figured I would try out an iMac. Words can not describe this machine. The 27" screen is amazing, beautiful picture, clear, extra sharp images. I love how it syncs with my iPhone, connects to the bluetooth, allows FaceTime and so much more. It is very simple to navigate around and figure out. Speed isn't an issue, everything is super fast and runs very smooth. Speakers are great quality, loud sound. Not to mention, I love how it only has one cord! The PC it replaced had tons of cords connecting every which way. I will never use any other brand again. All around - AMAZING!

    Awesome IMAC 27"

    |
    Posted .

    As Silver Elite, in last year, I bought washer,dryer,PC, high-end receiver, Iphone 5, and this IMAC, Love the product but very unhappy with recent trends by Best Buy. When I bought my new IPHONE almost a year ago and they offered a better plan than Verizon (if phone breaks(even by your own doing), it will be replaced) That plan is not being offered any more. The new plan is no different than Verizon's. Because of the change, I recently bought my Wife's new IPhone directly at Verizon. When I purchased this IMAC, I used my BB rewards card and discovered a recent change in the BB rewards plan - if you use the 18 months interest free you get zero reward points. I will be less likely to buy from Best Buy in the future due to taking away the incentives. As a Silver Elite customer, I am offended by the changes by Best Buy, It appears that the recent spin to go from Reward Zone to My BestBuy was a cover to take away customer incentives. Lastly, when I called customer service in attempt to understand why I did not get my points, all I heard was the RZ points rules changes this summer and customers were notified in an email(that was cold).

    Ultimate home computer experience

    Posted .

    After years of viruses, slow downs, freeze ups, pop ups, advertisements, and the stress that goes along with that, I decided to upgrade to an Apple computer. I was a bit reluctant at first, because of the learning curve. But, I'm retired so I have time to learn. When I plugged it in and logged in, I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was to operate. I can hardly believe there has not been any issues with this computer after 5 weeks of use. The graphics are outstanding so my photos seem to come to life. I could not be more satisfied with this purchase, except that I didn't do it sooner.

    i know very little about computers, and want to keep it that way, so it's very important for my computer to work. this computer does that, and doesn't seem to catch all the virus (whatever the plural of virus is) that all the PCs that i've had caught. if you've not had an apple before, it takes a little bit of getting used to, but it is clearly a superior product when compared to the PCs i've had.

    Expensive but worth it

    |
    Posted .

    I could not decide between this and the 21 so I bought both because of the good return policy that let me try both side by side. Was worried that it would be too big for the space but that was not a problem. The 27 does load faster and when doing video it's noticeably faster. After having both I did not want to go small so stuck with the 27. For most day to day tasks (word, excel, email, web surfing) I can't see a need for the larger screen as most stuff is still in the 4x3 format and does not use all the screen. The exception being video and photo editing apps. When not doing editing I use a lower resolution so can read the text better but when editing photos this screen is really easy to fall in love with. When compared to other all in ones it's really priced pretty well just on specs alone without the apple premium. I've only had it a month but so far would buy again. I wish best buy would sell it with the fusion drive or ssd option.

    Another Excellent Apple Product

    Do you hate to deal with virus protection software of a pc? Currently, I have multiple pc's at my house, and they are driving me crazy since I have young children and they love to surf on the internet. Every now and then the pc's would crash or are really slow due to the virus, etc. Since having this Apple 27" iMac with 8GB Memory-1TB Hard Drive, I have no more worries with my young children getting on the web! I don't have to worry about the virus or the slowness of it starting up, etc. This is a must have with you have young children or older parents who are not very savvy with desktops. Apple desktop turns on instantly and are so easy to use. It is a little pricey, but it is worth every penny.

    Best consumer electronic purchase I've made...

    |
    Posted .

    I have had an iPhone, iPad, and AppleTV for years but never took the leap to iMac or Macbook because of the lack of Bluray capability and the fact have been a PC user my entire life. I needed to update my business computer and chose to purchase this computer because I dislike Windows 8. After the initial 2 weeks of exploration of the app store and getting to know this machine, I know that I wasted years by not converting sooner. Everything my business needs and uses has been made faster and seemingly more stable. Even when my son comes to visit me, it can more than handle entertaining him as I finish my work day. I will forever be looking at the PC world in the rearview.
