Bad: Everything else
Comment: My son convinced me, after many years of suffering the indignities of Microsoft, that Apple computers were the way to go. So we purchased a shiney new, top of the range iMac 27" in November 2010.
This machine has been plagued with countless problems and has been a horror from day one. Foolishly, I struggled on with this machine only to suffer the ultimate indignity of total hard disk failure. This left me with a £1600 paperweight.
Apple computers could not be less helpful. The machine should just be replaced – it is obviously a dud. No chance with Apple computers – happy to replace the hard disk of a machine that is only 18 months old at a further, extortionate, £250+VAT cost to me. This is outrageous.

Good: Performance and Looks. Customer Service from Apple as a company is great!
Bad: Hard Drive Failure within a Month of Having it.
Comment: Had this at christmas and within January of last year the Hard Drive Failed, this can happen with any desktop/laptop and is not an Apple specfic component. However on the phone to Apple in a shot they had it picked up the next day, lent me a replacement and had it back to me within a week, i am under the Apple Protection Plan that is worth doing let me add however does have a hefty price tag.
From then nothing has gone wrong with it at all, the performance is fantastic and can handle anything i throw at it, graphic editing, video editing and rendering, music production and gaming. Would recommend one to anyone, looking to purchase a macbook pro so that i can have all that but on the move!
Good: everything :D
Bad: lack of software as windows get everything
Comment: ive had it since christmas 2010 and it was the best computer in my history of pcs because the macintosh interface is very clear, easy to use, has good free use of creative software such as garage band, imovie, photobooth is fun and creates fun photos and it is easy to add affects.
to the serious stuff as i have an i3 latest mac with 10.6 XOS had no problems with it there is a slight technical fault when signing into msn (the downloaded Microsoft app) where it sometimes not responds but macintosh act quickly and it re open's the app and sends an error message that is responded to in just minuets/ a few hours
their expensive but for the greatest quality its a great investment and sometimes rewarding with what you do with it.
Bad: Nothing at all!
Comment: I can't think of one bad aspect of the iMac. I have had the 21.5" version for 2 weeks now and it's amazing! I previously had a Macbook, and was hesitating whether to make the change or not; I am so glad I did!
Good: Quiet, slim, light, powerful, responsive, stunning display
Comment: I've only just received the exact same model of iMac reviewed here and it is absolutely stunning.
Good: Impressive power and performance, beautiful screen, great sound quality, ease of use, build quality/looks, quietness, adjustability
Bad: Screen reflectivity
Comment: I have the 27inch Quad Core i5 version. Needless to say it is lightning fast and thankfully the screen is neither too big, nor too small. Love it :D
