Great for very light use...

Once I started to do a little programming and added a second profile this machine came to a crawl. Took minutes to change profiles or open applications. I'm sure it would be fine with just simple tasks and one profile but just be careful...

Do not buy this imac

This imac is so slow just add 300 more dollar and get a faster model.

So far so good

I'm a basic computer user. I had a MacBook Pro prior to this...which I didn't really need. So far I love my iMac. For me, it's more than enough computer. Hopefully it'll last a long time. I read the other reviews and they were disappointing, so hopefully I haven't made a huge mistake buying this desktop as opposed to a PC. The keyboard is too small though. I wish it had the number pad!

as long as you don't want to upgrade or if you have a problem.

this is a nice little machine for sitting on your desk and checking out the internet. Maybe doing some minor tasks. A little better than a laptop because you get a bigger screen. Want more RAM for some needed processing punch? Major surgery if it can be done at all. Nice little machine for checking out the internet.

Great but It wont last long

The fact that the cpu and graphics card aren't upgradable means this thing is like a giant laptop. But I gotta say its very fast and it looks great but still it won't last long due to the fact you can't upgrade it except for the ram.

When did Apple become the one to be outdated?

I really wanted to love this, and got one for the family as a general computer for everyone. The bonuses: - Looks elegant - OSX is always far more reliable then Windows The Negatives: - No touchscreen, something far to comment in all-in-ones - real world performance for the price is SAD - Apples' refusal to allow one to upgrade this in any way - Very glossy screen, do not put near a light source - 5400 rpm drive, ANCIENT technology Basically, this is a mediocre laptop without the mobility. If you hate touchscreen and want a reliable OS, Mac is a good way to go. Just understand that once you buy, you can not upgrade it, and it really is highly overpriced considering the actual technology is, for the most part, outdated. Even the processor is an old version. Better choices are: If you have to have apple OSX = Macbook pro w/ external monitor If you don't care about the OS = Go for one of the new Windows all-in-ones that you can actually use the screen for touch, and get 2x the power for the price.

  • from apple sucks town, as

sucks, cant play simple games

this sucks i cant play any simple games like minecraft it just crashes and restarts itself man apple sucks at making computers back to microsoft

  • from toronto,on


Better than Windows equivalents of All in ones. But, Apple, whoever was in charge of designing the Magic Mouse (2) should be fired. Worst design ever. You cannot use it while it is charging. For those of you who are willing to buy this, quickly replace the mouse with something like the Logitech MX Anywhere 2 or MX Master. (So much better than the Apple Magic Mouse 2)

Great Computer

As I we have only used PC's at home before this has been a small challenge to switch over to a mac. The system is user friendly and works great. So far very happy.

  • from Calgary, AB

It is all what I was looking for!

All in one, very fast, & the mouse is simply the latest technology!

  • from Ottawa, ON


This is without a doubt, the best PC I've ever bought. Works flawlessly, no blue screens of death, no fatal error messages, no crap and best customer service I've ever experienced from any manufacturer. I've had mine for three years now and I love it now as much when I bought it. Apple truly is a superior product and I'm never going back to a Microsoft design again. If you want a computer that works and you're willing to adjust to the way Mac does things, I'm pretty sure you wont be disappointed.
