Apple iMac MD096

The 21.5-inch iMac will be a compelling lower-cost all-in-one for Mac loyalists, but you can get more capabilities from similarly priced Windows all-in-ones.

Apple Mac Mini (Core i7 2.3 GHz, fall 2012)

With or without its new Fusion hybrid drive, Apple finally has a Mac Mini that competes well against mainstream Windows PCs in the same price range.

Apple MacBook Pro with Retina Display (13.3-inch)

While the Retina MacBook Pro is easily the most desirable 13-inch Mac laptop to date, the high price and lack of discrete graphics make it a tough call versus either the more powerful 15-inch Retina Pro or the more affordable 13-inch Air.

Elgato HD HomeRun

The Elgato HDHomeRun is a decent way to get over-the-air TV on your Mac, but its high bandwidth requirements mean you're better off opting for wired rather than Wi-Fi streaming.

Apple Mac Mini (2.3GHz Core i5, Summer 2011)

Apple's new $799 Mac Mini demands that you abandon disc-based media, and that you surround it with potentially expensive extra hardware to realize its full benefits. It makes most sense for committed Mac users, those who need it for a specific niche-case, or for those who value design over functionality for the dollar.

Apple iMac 27-inch (3.1GHz, spring 2011)

Apple's $1,199 iMac doesn't offer the same home entertainment features as Windows-based all-in-ones, but its speed, looks, and the future utility of its Thunderbolt port make it a strong choice for performance-sensitive professionals.

Apple MacBook Air Fall 2010 (Core 2 Duo 1.86GHz, 256GB SSD, 13.3-inch)

Apple MacBook Pro Winter 2011 (2.3GHz Core i5, 13-inch)

The new entry-level $1,199 13-inch MacBook Pro's significant CPU updates and fantastic battery life are nearly as good as what you get in the more expensive $1,499 version.

Apple iMac summer 2010 (Intel Core i3 3.2GHz, 27 in)

Apple's new $1,999 iMac comes with a faster CPU and a new graphics card, helping this 27-inch all-in-one desktop stay as competitive in performance as it already was in screen size. Despite the still-frustrating absence of an HDMI port, we have no qualms recommending this system for work or play.

Apple iMac fall 2009 (Intel Core 2 Duo 3.06Hz, Nvidia GeForce 9400M, 21.5 in)

Despite its good looks and a few useful new features, Apple's new iMac is all about business. You can find a larger screen for less, not to mention all kinds of digital entertainment features, but no other all-in-one at this price can boast similar performance. If you need a modestly priced all-in-one for getting work done, we'd recommend no other system.
