About Apple iMac 21.5"

Sit down in front of an iMac and something incredible happens: The world around you seems to disappear, and you lose yourself in the big, beautiful display. To create an experience this immersive, Apple pushed every limit, rethought every detail, and advanced iMac in the most astonishing ways. The first iMac was a revolution: An All-in-One computer that put everything display, processor, graphics, storage, memory, and more inside one simple, stylish enclosure. Countless innovations later, Apple has raised the bar yet again.

iMac includes the most advanced, most brilliant desktop display Apple has ever built, and it's filled with the latest high-performance technologies. Yet it's just 5mm thin at its edge with up to 40 percent less volume than the previous generation. To do all that required unprecedented feats of engineering and imagination. Apple invented new technologies, pioneered new manufacturing techniques, and devised all-new ways to do more in less space.

iMac is amazingly thin, yet it offers fourth-generation Intel Core processors, faster graphics, the advanced Fusion Drive and flash storage options, and ultrafast 802.11ac Wi-Fi. So it's powerful enough for a design studio, production house, or science lab. And beautiful enough for any room in your home.

Apple iMac 21.5" Features

  • Innovations you can see: You won't want anything to distract you from what you're viewing on these big, beautiful 21.5" and 27" displays. And nothing will, thanks to an amazing display design that reduces reflection by 75 percent. In addition, because the LCD sits right up against the glass, your content seems to leap off the screen.
  • IPS technology and LED backlighting: The gorgeous iMac display looks great from any seat in the house. A technology called in-plane switching (IPS) gives you a bright picture with excellent color from nearly any angle. And LED backlighting offers instant-on, uniform brightness with no waiting.
  • Vivid, true-to-life color. Every time: Everything you see on the big, glossy display from skin tones and dark shadows to bright blue skies and green fields is rich and vibrant. And the colors are more true to life, too. That's because every iMac display is individually color-calibrated spectroradiometers to match world color standards.
  • New NVIDIA Graphics: iMac graphics are more powerful across the board. NVIDIA GeForce 700 series graphics processors are even faster than the previous generation and include double the video memory. So you'll see more frames per second in 3D games, and you can edit HD home videos with more speed and responsiveness than ever before.
  • Faster Fusion Drive: Fusion Drive is a breakthrough storage option that combines a high-capacity hard drive with high-performance flash storage. And now it's up to 50 percent faster than before.

i love it


super nice for music an Photoshop


Not recommended


I would not recommend this for more than browsing the internet. Runs slower than the mid-2008 macbook pro it replaced. Multiple user profiles take minutes... MINUTES... to change from user to user. Has difficulty even running Safari and iTunes at the same time.


New iMac with better processor and wi-fi


The newest iMac from Adorama was an excellent purchase. The item shipped fast and was in the original packaging (the white box inside a surdy brown carton). The machine, apart from other conf, also boasts of newest standard in wi-fi (ac) which makes it run super smooth.


Adorama Helps Me Buy


I phoned Adorama and was promptly helped by sales people who were cheerful, knowledgeable, helpful. The iMac is great. The upgrade to Mavericks was free, and easy to do. Your write up of this computer is descriptive and helpful. My husband and I have had a Mac computer since 1984, and it's been fun seeing each new feature.

Very difficult to enlarge fonts!


Disapponted after great experiences with iPhone & iPad. Switched from PC to get Lightroom for photo processing. If you are young & don't need glasses, this machine will suit your needs. If you need to increase font size, forget it. OS X was not designed for this, unlike iOS & Windows. To make things worse, Adorama will not take back computers! There is a third-party app called Tinker Tool(not approved by Apple), which helps increase font size, but it is not ideal.

piece of junk,nothing worked


home/personal use


Excellent desktop computer!


We purchased this since our 7 yr old imac was getting a bit slow and we needed two computers in the house with kids starting to use the computer more from homework, etc. This new imac is blazing fast. Migration from old imac to new imac was easy. (Use a wired ethernet for migration; migration over wifi was slow and kept failing.) I use chronosync to keep the two macs synchronized. Works great!

Nice new computer for photo processing!


New quad core processor fast for photo image processing, plus the new(er) display is still a quality ips unit but with less reflectance and you can set luminance at 80 for ideal image viewing. Easily calibrated with my X-Rite device (great software support for newer OSX by the way).
