I couldn't be happier with this Mac! It's fast, well equipped, the screen is beautiful, the speakers sound great, and the size allows me to do so much more than I was able to on a smaller monitor. The setup was simple, as it is with all of Apple's products, however it did get stuck at the "setting up your iMac" screen. I rebooted it and it has worked flawlessly ever since. I was torn between this Mac, the new 5k Mac and I was also considering a PC but after lots of research I decided that this was the best bang for my buck. If you're trying to decide whether or not to save some money by buying this or shelling out the extra cash on the new 5k version I can tell you that while the latter undoubtedly has an incredible screen, this Mac's screen is absolutely beautiful too. It's a great machine and I'm extremely pleased with my purchase. No sales tax, free next day shipping and the lowest price I found for this Mac. It's a great deal!

I have been Mac only for 10 years, so this is not buyer's remorse. I do quite a bit of photo editing and this is the slowest Mac I have ever bought. Not slowest processor, slowest machine. 8GB of RAM and 4 cores and I get the spinning beach ball when I open Safari! I wish I had bought the fusion drive and a faster processor.That said, the screen is gorgeous with plenty of real estate. It is quiet and (so far) does not run hot.I also do not like having the SD card slot on the back.I would not recommend this for intensive photo or video editing.For general casual use it is probably more than you need.

My son bought one from you, loved it so much, he bought one for his son....then recommended it to me! I love it! Very intuitive to use, fantastic product, arrived in less than 48 hours, beautifully packaged and ready to go with literally one plug! Amazing screen clarity and the speakers are better than my external Logitech ones I used for my PC. Can't be happier with the quality, price, service!!

Comments about Apple 27" iMac Desktop Computer (Late 2013):

I wanted to save a few pennies and found this good deal on this late 2013 iMac, and I couldn't be happier. I ordered it with the upgraded memory, installed by B&H and it shipped quickly. The Mac's performance for photography with Lightroom and Photoshop CC has been excellent. I didn't feel I needed to spend more for the latest and greatest and this Mac does the job fine.The 27" screen is crystal clear, vibrant colors, and I calibrated it using X-Rite's Color Munki Photo, so colors are accurate. I am running OSX Yosemite and decided not to upgrade to El Capitan just yet. I have it on my older Mac Mini and found it slower with some issues for some applications. Everything on this Mac works perfect, and it's fast. I have an older firewire drive and am using one of the Thunderbolt ports with the firewire adapter. The transfer speed is not be as speedy this way, but perfectly fine for my purposes. I'm very happy with this purchase.

    Yes, it is a 2013 Mac, but the processor is still more than capable of handling the entire Adobe Creative Suite.

        Comments about Apple 27" iMac Desktop Computer (Late 2013):

        This computer is AMAZING so far!! I searched and searched for the right computer for the right price and I found it here with B&H photo. Now I can really focus on my art projects and other business with the help of this Mac. I love the 27" screen to use a a work space, and the graphics look very nice. I could not find a difference between the 2013 and 2015 that was important enough to spend the extra money. If you are looking for a good deal on a Mac, and fast delivery - this company is the place to buy! Also, they have an A+ rating with BBB. Two thumbs up.

              This iMac has a bigger screen to work with. It's very fast and image quality is perfectly fine for the job. It's great to view photos on a bigger screen imac.
