Pros Fast, good looking, has just about all the features you need in home desk top.
Cons I've had my iMac since Sept. 10, 2007 and to date its had the logic board and hard drive replaced under warranty, its currently at the Apple service center in my area getting a new super drive. Apple really needs to fix their quality control.
Summary Quality control on my iMac sucks. I intended to sell it as soon as I get it out of the shop.
Pros Nice screen and keyboard
Cons This thing generates extreme heat in the area of the power supply!!
Summary Purchased 5/15/09. On 7/1/09, authorized Apple Repair facility tested the iMac. Tests revealed a hardware failure and excessive heat generation. Apple Repair changed out the power supply.
No improvements from the extreme heat generation. Now experiencing momentary horizontal lines across the screen at bootups, scrambled page loads and lockups that require restarts. Apple Repair says they can't do anything because heat is not a hardware problem (???). Apple technical says I may have a bad video card. No kidding... in that kind of extreme heat environment, what other electronics are fried (heat degradation). Apple's solution... change out the video card to be fried again in a month or so, or maybe next the hard drive or ????
Pros ive ran windows based machines forever and finally got sick of the crashes the spyware and the lag they often get. not a glitch in the 3 months ive owned the mac and still learning to use it.nothing about it so far i dont like.awesome machine(fast)
Cons wireless keyboard and mouse would of been nice as standard rather then optional extra and bigger graphics card but not a real isue the 256 runs well.also only 90 day service back up support standard should be at least one yaer one would think.
Summary great all in one slimline machine easily transportable if needed,great display awesome picture quality and fast n reliable machine.would recomend to any one thinking about swapping pc for mac
Pros It is very fast. It's 2.8 GHz processor may not seem like much compared to the new Intel I series Quad core processor , but it is still extremely fast. It also is a prefect size, if you are looking for a large, but not to large screen, this is more than a
Cons Mobile me, and sometimes boot camp is stubborn.
Summary If you are looking for an cheaper alternative to the new more expensive imacs this is prefect. Oh and it can run Snow Leopard and will run Lion.
Pros Beautiful design, great resolution and sound. Great marketing campaign.
Cons When you buy an apple product outside the States, the service apple provides equas to zero. There is nobody to talk to, to complain to. It is really frustrating to find yourself in that position.
Summary I moved to Panama, central America and being a huge fan of apple products I decided to get a new imac for my wife's christmas present. She opened the box, installed her itunes back up cds and voila the computer freezed several times. Next day the computer was in the repair center authorized by apple and 2 months later I got back my "brand new" repaired computer. The store did not do anything, the service center contacted me twice a week to let me know about the computer and apple Latinamerica kept sending the same parts over and over again for two months. Before you buy an apple product outside the States make sure they will respond quickly to your needs. Good luck!
