The iMac is a machine that sells itself. It was only a few months ago that a new Apple store opened in Glasgow, until then I never considered an Apple iMac as our main computer at home. However using the iMac's in the store showed that they were very easy to use, powerful and user-friendly. The sales staff were also friendly, and unlike most similar places, not in the least bit pushy. I went for the 20" iMac with a wireless keyboard and mouse, which costs £833. The same iMac with a wired keyboard and mouse comes in at £799. The spec is: 20" LCD widescreen display (1680 by 1050 resolution) 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 1GB ... Read the complete review

As well as owning an Apple iMac 20", I constantly use the same model at work and have done so for several years. I am responsible for training people how to use this Mac in an educational institution. I train a diverse range of people of widely differing abilities, and the people vary from young children to octogenarians! It is a very rewarding job, as I get to develop my expertise in this area and I get to see how my clients flourish with their newly acquired IT skills. As a result, my review is both based on of my experience of this product and the experiences I have witnessed from my clients. The first point I would like to make, is that I would ...

My brand new iMac arrived two weeks ago, and, after quickly (and very easily) importing all of my documents over from my old iMac I had a little play around with it. My 'Mac has a 2.66 ghz processor and 4gb ram, which is plenty fast for your normal internet, itunes etc. If anything it's a bit of an overkill, but I like to know that I have the power in reserve just in case... Apple's main selling point for the iMac is it's ease of use, and this I have to say is very good - OSX is simply a joy to use: it's very intuitive and oh-so-pretty. The actual Mac is also very stylish - quite how they managed to fit the computer into a relatively thin screen ... Read the complete review

A brilliant looking computer that performs well. All macs are coded differently to windows computers meaning it is basically impossible to get a virus which is good news. The computer has 1gb of RAM which results in programs opening in a flash - i regularly have around 5 programs open at the same time and have no adverse afects. The 20" TFT monitor provides a crisp and clear display which is great for viewing movies and playing new games. The only problem with this computer is that some software is not mac compatible but it is very rare that i have this problem. The core 2 duo proccessor is outrageously fast and perfect for playing the latest games ... Read the complete review

I have had this iMac for just over 2 years now, and it is still the best machine I've ever owned. I was a Windows/Linux PX user previous, but switching to the Mac had me wondering why I'd not switched before. Every detail is thought out, even down to the magnet on the side for your (included) Apple remote. A built in iSight camera and microphone almost negates the need for a landline telephone! The independent software programmers for the Mac are also top notch, and you will undoubtably find a reasonably priced, beautiful program for anything you need to do. The main reason to reward yourself with the Mac experience is that the stress ... Read the complete review
