REVIEW

Apple iMac ( 21.5-inch, 500GB)

Apple Mac Pro (2013)
REVIEW

Apple Mac Pro ( 2013)

Apple radically re-imagines the professional desktop with the new Mac Pro, featuring a design that looks fantastic and offers genuine breakthrough advantages. But, consumer-level Apple enthusiasts should note that this product isn't specifically targeted at them and DIY upgraders will lament the loss of traditional desktop tower flexibility.

Apple iMac MD096
REVIEW

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.

REVIEW

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

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 21.5-inch (2.5GHz, spring 2011)
REVIEW

Apple iMac 21.5-inch ( 2.5GHz, 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.

REVIEW

Apple iMac summer 2010 ( Intel Core i5 2.8GHz, 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 Mac Mini (Spring 2010)
REVIEW

Apple Mac Mini ( Spring 2010)

Apple's new Mac Mini includes an elegant new design and some long asked-for features, including HDMI output and user-accessible memory. The system still faces a value challenge for its given specs, but Apple has done enough to improve the Mac Mini's appeal for Apple loyalists and design fans looking for a living room computer.

Apple Mac Mini (2.26GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 160GB, Fall 2009)
REVIEW

Apple Mac Mini ( 2.26GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 160GB, Fall 2009)

The lower-cost Mac Mini offers respectable budget performance and Apple's usual compelling design, but a puny hard drive and a lack of HDMI hurt this system's value and overall potential. It's actually more versatile next to its budget-priced Windows competition than the higher-end Mac Mini, but this entry-level Mac is still best left to Apple loyalists.

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

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.
