For nearly 20 years, CNET has told the stories of technology and the people behind it with our groundbreaking website. Now we're bringing those stories to you in a new medium--print.
A massive 20- or 24-inch tablet that feels more like an all-in-one, and it runs Android 4.4. What is this crazy thing? It's the Nabi Big Tab...for kids.
A few other all-in-ones make this 20-inch iMac look expensive on a dollars-per-screen-inch basis, but none are as attractive or as capable juggling multiple programs. With a fast dual-core CPU and a strong array of features, Apple's updated all-in-one will slide seamlessly into a variety of roles at home or at work.
Apple's smaller-scale iMac remains our favorite all-in-one. And while its looks, its ease of use, and its performance are all selling points, Windows PCs are starting to catch up (at least with the latter). A few components could also stand an update, but in general you'll find the 20-inch iMac a remarkable computer for its price.
With the same elegant design as its 20-inch, 2.4GHz sibling, the 24-inch, 2.8GHz iMac offers 30 percent more screen area and a modest performance boost. The iMac competes with the PC desktop market now better than perhaps any previous Mac to date, but the added cost of the larger, faster model might put off some buyers--especially if you are a gamer or an upgrade enthusiast.
The 17-inch iMac is missing a few features you might like--SuperDrive and a remote control, to name two--but it still makes a stellar home PC, thanks to its great design, new Core 2 Duo processor, and superior software bundle. Plus, its price makes it a borderline budget PC.
The Apple iMac G5 gets trimmer and cheaper as it ups its performance and adds a handful of multimedia features, resulting in an all-around first-rate home PC.
Along with the new Tiger OS, the iMac G5 gets more muscle beneath its sleek exterior, making the all-in-one desktop a better performer and a better value.
The Apple 23-inch Cinema Display is low on extras and high on price. Still, one look at this gorgeous LCD, and you'll kiss your practicality good-bye.
The iMac's 20-inch display makes both work and play a lot easier on the eyes, if not on the wallet.
This LCD is great for Power Mac G4 owners and publishing professionals, but consumers can save several hundred dollars on the older 17-inch Apple Studio Display.
