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

      Intelligently engineered, visually stunning, and blazingly fast. What more could I ask for? Oh, yeah, about 50% more desk space than I had with my old PC.

      Applications on the Fusion drive fire up almost instantly and photo editing tasks that took up to a minute or more on my old PC now complete in seconds. And the display is without equal in my experience. With no extra calibration, test prints I've made so far are absolutely identical to what I see on the screen. And what I see on the screen is fabulous. I should also mention that I unpacked it, plugged it in and turned it on, and was actually working productively within 20 minutes of it being delivered. No wading through "cram-ware", fickle drivers, cumbersome anti-virus programs, etc. Just a fast, clean machine.

      I have to admit I spent a number of sleepless nights wondering if I should spend so much money on a computer. But after having it for a little over a week I'm really glad I did. I've been half in the Windows world and half in the Mac world (with a MacBook Pro) for a while, and am now 100% Mac. Couldn't be happier.

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

        I used an iMac at school and loved it but couldn't afford one until now. I "converted" to Mac in 2009 with a 15" MacBook Pro and have loved it and the iMac doesn't disappoint.
        My only complaint is that I need to purchase a separate CD/DVD Drive BUT it's worth it for such an amazing machine.

            Finally replaced my old Dell desktop with this iMac 27. It did not disappoint me. The display is beautiful and it runs flawlessly.

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

              We're an all Mac production house in Jerusalem, Israel. These new iMacs are smoking fast, have great looking screens and are a joy to use. We went for the 4gb video card option to speed up our Adobe After Effects work and the fusion drive for the best combination of speed and capacity. Thus far we have been very pleased with this model. We use it with a bunch of usb3, FW800 and thunderbolt drives as well as network shared storage.Our render times in AE are about 1/3 of the time it took on our late 2011 i7 MacBook Pro. FCPX flies on this machine, the user interface and renders are significantly faster than on any of our other computers.If I had to complain about something it would be that I needed to buy an Apple keyboard with number pad as After Effects relies on keyboard shortcuts that are not possible, or are annoying, on the small wireless keyboard.

                  This does a nice job with the graphics work I use it for, even for some basic 3-d work. Runs pretty smoothly.

                  I finally switched from PC to Apple and this computer is awesome. I have absolutely no regrets. I love that there is no huge tower and that the computer is in the monitor. This computer is beautiful and I love sitting in front of it. It was so much easier than I thought to transfer my PC files over. I've only had the computer for a few weeks now and it is amazing. I'll never be switching back to PC.
