Apple iMac 21.5" 4K Display Mid 2017 Overview

  • 1Description

Apple weds high-res 4K visuals into its sleek, 5mm thin, mid 2017 21.5" iMac with Retina 4K Display. With a 4096 x 2304 screen resolution, this iMac provides 1 billion colors and 500 nits of brightness, which is 43% brighter than the previous model. The Retina 4K display also features a wider color gamut. Using a P3-based color gamut, the Retina 4K display provides a larger color space that more equally represents red, green, and blue, as compared to standard sRGB displays. And with more available colors, the images will appear more vivid and reveal greater detail, with more balance and precision.

The iMac's processor has been upgraded and now houses a 7th-gen Kaby Lake 3.0 GHz Intel Core i5 Quad-Core processor that can be overclocked up to 3.5 GHz, as well as 8GB of 2400 MHz DDR4 RAM. Visuals are powered by a dedicated AMD Radeon Pro 555 graphics card with 2GB of vRAM, and for storage, there is a 1TB 5400 rpm hard drive.

Outfitted with 802.11ac Wi-Fi and backwards compatible with 802.11a/b/g/n for speedy hook-ups to your home network, this iMac is also configured with Bluetooth 4.2, as well as a UHS-II SDXC card slot, two 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 ports, four 5 Gb/s USB 3.0 Type-A ports, a Gigabit Ethernet jack, and a FaceTime HD camera. It also has a Kensington lock slot for added security.

Apple's 21.5" iMac with Retina 4K Display (Mid 2017) operates using 100-240 VAC at 50-60 Hz and includes an Apple Magic Keyboard, an Apple Magic Mouse 2, a Lightning to USB cable, and a power cord. Protection is provided by a limited 1-year warranty, which can be extended using AppleCare.

This Mac comes preloaded with macOS. Updates can be downloaded for free via the Mac App Store. Please check Apple's website for upgrade eligibility.

General Features

21.5" Retina 4K IPS Display
Whether your iMac is in your studio, living room, or kitchen, the display is the focal point. With a 4096 x 2304 screen resolution and a 16:9 aspect ratio, you'll be able to playback 4K content natively. The IPS panel allows for wider viewing angles so more people can enjoy the display without having to crowd around it. With a dedicated AMD Radeon Pro 555 graphics card and 2GB of vRAM, the iMac delivers 4K visual effects and 3D graphics, as well as video editing capabilities that can tackle multicam projects in Final Cut Pro X with up to five streams of full-res 4K video, as well as the ability to edit 360° video and create 3D VR content.
7th-Gen Kaby Lake Quad-Core Intel Core Performance
The iMac houses a 7th-Gen Kaby Lake Intel Core i5 Quad-Core processor that can reach a stock speed of 3.0 GHz. It can also be overclocked up to 3.5 GHz, thanks to Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology. The 7th-gen Kaby Lake Intel processor uses low voltage for better energy efficiency while still providing fast performance needed to run processor-intensive applications such as Logic Pro or Final Cut Pro. Combined with 8GB of 2400 MHz DDR4 onboard RAM, the iMac allows you to multitask quickly and efficiently.
External Displays
The iMac simultaneously supports full native resolution on the built-in display and either one 5120 x 2880 (5K) external display at 60 Hz with support for 1 billion colors, two 3840 x 2160 (4K UHD) external displays at 60 Hz with support for 1 billion colors, or two 4096 x 2304 (4K) external displays at 60 Hz with support for millions of colors.
Thin Design
The iMac maintains its 5mm profile, which is up to 40% less volume than the 2011 iMac. Its display panel is 1.4mm thin.
802.11ac Wi-Fi & Bluetooth 4.2
With three-stream 802.11ac technology, you're instantly connected to all your favorite content. Bluetooth 4.2 wireless technology is also built in, so you can connect accessories such as a wireless keyboard and mouse.
Gigabit Ethernet
For a more reliable network connection, take advantage of wired Gigabit Ethernet technology.
Thunderbolt 3
Two Thunderbolt 3 (USB Type-C) ports come standard on all iMac models, each delivering up data transfer speeds of up to 40 Gb/s external drives and cameras, plus twice the bandwidth for video and display connectivity. Thunderbolt 3 also supports 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 and DisplayPort 1.2. Thunderbolt 2, HDMI, DVI, and VGA output is also supported using adapters (sold separately).
USB 3.0
With USB 3.0, you can transfer large files in seconds instead of minutes. Every iMac comes with four 5 Gb/s USB 3.0 Type-A ports - with speeds up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 - and you can connect all your USB-compatible devices, including your iPhone, iPad, iPod or digital camera.
FaceTime HD Camera
A built-in FaceTime HD camera allows users to use apps such as FaceTime and Skype for video calls.

    Apple iMac 21.5" 4K Display Mid 2017 Reviews

    21.5- iMac with Retina 4K Display (Mid 2017) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 153.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Desktop! This is the fourth IMac I've owned and used professionally since the early 2000's. I've kept using Apple desktops for their trouble free service, and easy interface. I've always liked the way they handle tasks, have such a small sized footprint. This latest model works great for my photography, email, and internet needs, and I really like the new 4K screen, and color quality! Also enjoying the new wireless rechargeable mouse, and keyboard. After four models, this is certainly the best version yet! B&H offered the lowest price along with free shipping, so ordering it from them was an easy decision. Good product, and good dealer. Thank you!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast. Sexy. Upgradeable (sort of) 2009 iMac 27 (2.66 i5 quad core) had its hard drive fail. I didn't wan to spend $ to fix an 8 year old machine. Having seen the 2017 iMacs recently updated, I decided on the 21.5 4K with the 3.4 Core i5 with the Radeon Pro 560. Kept the standard 8 GB RAM and 1 TB Fusion Drive since I can *technically* updgrade both in a few years. I went with the smaller iMac this time to save some $$$ and I like the performance of the hardware in this 21.5 4K. Been using it for a few weeks now and love it. Obviously it is several orders of magnitude faster than my old iMac. But I really like how brilliant the screen is. The keyboard is easy to type on and I like both the keyboard and mouse have built in rechargeable batteries. Overall, this is a great value vs performance IMO and I love B&H pricing, no tax, no shipping!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great company. Weak iMac This review doesn't concern B & H. Their service was great. It's the iMac that is not what I thought it would be. The biggest bottleneck to this machine is the hard drive. It is unbelievably slow. I ran benchmarks and Read/Write speeds were at 40Mbps. Boot up times were agonizingly slow. Loading just the Finder presented the pinwheel. And popping up the screen from being in sleep mode was at minimum 7-10 seconds every time. I fixed this problem by hooking up my old SSD via thunderbolt port. R/W went up to 430Mbps. Boot times were much quicker and app load up times were faster with no pinwheels. Waking from sleep mode is about 1/2 a second. I get it. SSDs are faster. But why Apple would put a 4-banger into a Porsche is beyond me. It's completely absurd. This iMac has plenty of ponies under the hood. I wouldn't recommend this iMac to anyone. Make the jump to an SSD or at minimum the Fusion drive if you decide on an iMac. I've not tested the Fusion drive but I bet it's better than a regular HDD. I gave this iMac a rating of 3 stars only because I like B & H. If it wasn't for them I'd give this iMac one star.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My First iMac - 5 Stars After having an iPhone, an iPad, and even an Apple Watch, I finally invested in the purchase of an iMac. The learning curve from PC to iMac has been pretty easy especially when already familiar with Apple products. The 4K display is brilliant, but what I really love is the integration between the iMac and my other Apple products. The ability to AirDrop files and photos and sync folders in iCloud has saved me a lot of time. This is such a well built unit and I envision it serving me well for many years to come.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Machine This Mac is our 10th machine since starting our business so were loyal purchasers to begin with.  This is the first that we have ordered with the SSD drive preinstalled having added after the fact on our last 2 machines.  We also run Windows 10 with Parallels on a virtual machine for our Quickbooks.  This machine and the SSD speed handles and meets our best expectations!  The visual of the 4K Retina is amazing.  Got this one Black Friday at a great promo price including the SSD Upgrade and no freight or tax.  Great value to service a new employee running on our wireless network.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best Mac I've owned yet! I'm a graphic artist and have owned macs for over 20 years, the display on this iMac is blowing me away. Definitely the best mac I've owned yet. I always buy the largest amount of ram possible because graphics programs require a lot of processing speed and with this iMac the files are being processed almost instantly. The keyboard and mouse that come with it pair immediately, very handy. They are rechargeable so I'm not always looking for new batteries. You really can't go wrong with this workhorse computer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luv iT! When jumpstarting my new marketing biz, I quickly realized that my 1.6g GHz i5 MacBook Air (with 2nd monitor) was not going to support the Adobe Suite programs I rely on to create graphics and build websites. While scouring the web for a reasonable deal on a new iMac, I ran across a lovely 3.0 GHz i5 Quad-Core with a Radeon Pro 555 2 GB graphics card & Retina display on the B&H site, ordered it, and had it sitting on my desk three days later. I am on the West Coast and have ordered from these guys before, but was most impressed with their lightening speed and thorough customer service. Now I can run all my Adobe programs at once, and it's my new favorite device ever! Thanks B&H :-)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great iMac from a great company (B&H Photo) This is a 21.5, 4K retnia i7 3.6 GHz CPU with a 1TB SSD. The screen is very imnpressive, great colors, sharpness, contrast. A pleasure to view. The start up and shut down times are fast. The fans are very quite. This iMac replaced a 2009 27 inch iMac. My wife and I prefer the 21.5 inch screen over the 27 inch for our usage, we dont need to see two documents side by side or do any CAD work.

    is this a great computer for editing photos?
    Asked by: Amy
    It depends on your volume of work. If you're editing photos for a personal project, it should be fine. On a professional level, I find that it lags while editing in Photoshop and would recommend at least getting 16GB of ram if you can.
