5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 20 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Apple 21.5-inch New iMac (Aluminium silver) - (Intel Core i5 Quad-core 2.9GHz Processor, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD, NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M, OS X Mountain Lion) (Personal Computers)
I personally took a bit of a gamble in buying this computer and I definitely think it was worth it. I originally planned to buy a MacBook Pro but after seeing this model in a local shop I was sold. My main reason was that for similar pricing you can get a higher spec and an aesthetically sharper machine.
I have never owned a Mac before so I did encountered a few teething issues but on the whole it is very simple to set up.
The screen is excellent and it can be viewed from almost any angle without reflection.
The inbuilt speakers are also surprisingly good. They don't have great bass but they can play much louder than I expected without a loss in quality.
There are several reviews really slating this computer for its lack of an optical drive and I was originally sceptical about buying this model for this reason. I have however had my computer for nearly a week and not once have I needed a CD drive to set up the computer or move all my files onto it.
I will likely shell out for a cheap external drive as you can pick these up for 25 but I can't really think when it will be used unless I buy physical CDs rather than downloads from iTunes or Amazon.
