At, this iMac is our author’s top choice for 2017 computers. From it’s graphics — to high performance, — to free applications including the “Numbers app” (similar to Microsoft Excel but free with the iMac); — this computer is what us technology junkies dream of.
Overall Score

The iMac does have its downsides, such as it’s high price point, and we see lots of complaints about the battery-run mouse and keyboard, but as far as the iMac’s overall level of satisfaction, users are raving about its greatness.

A 27-inch 5K iMac is almost guaranteed to satisfy most users. It’s high-performance processors, graphics, and extra storage, all inside of it’s sleek and thin screen, makes this computer perfect for businesses and for personal use.

The 27‑inch iMac 5K model provides beautiful image quality. Users can access and integrate their iPhone messages, and use free applications such Numbers, Photos, Keynote, iBooks, iMovies, and hundreds more.


The newest 27-inch iMac model is ultra-slim (5  millimeters thin at the edge), albeit with a large bulge at the back for components like RAM, the logic board, and internal storage. The similarities extend down to the rear-mounted ports, the large black bezels, the adjustable aluminum stand, and a push-button mechanism used to access the RAM panel.


Down-facing speakers deliver loud, crisp audio for music, games, and video, and may, in fact, be good enough for casual users. Audiophiles will, of course, want dedicated speakers or headphones, especially for the sake of bass.
