Pros

  • Beautiful screen
  • Strong performance

Cons

  • Lacks extras: Touchscreen, Blu-ray, TV tuner, etc

At A Glance

Speedy all-in-one PC runs Windows 7 and OS X, but lacks extras like multi-touch, Blu-ray, and a TV Tuner. Performance gain over previous 20-inch iMac is marginal, but the new screen is much improved.

Manufacturer’s Description

The new iMac 21.5-inch display with edge-to-edge glass covers nearly the entire front of the enclosure. When all you see is the display, nothing gets between you and what's on-screen. Movies, TV shows, websites, photos - everything looks stunning on the new 16:9 widescreen iMac display.
