Apple iMac overview

  • 1Description

Apple weds high-res 5K visuals into its sleek, 5mm thin, mid 2017 27" iMac with Retina 5K Display. With a 5120 x 2880 screen resolution, this iMac provides 1 billion colors and 500 nits of brightness, which is 43% brighter than the previous model. The Retina 5K display also features a wider color gamut. Using a P3-based color gamut, the Retina 5K 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 4.2 GHz Intel Core i7 Quad-Core processor that can be overclocked up to 4.5 GHz, as well as 32GB of 2400 MHz DDR4 RAM. Visuals are powered by a dedicated AMD Radeon Pro 580 graphics card with 8GB of vRAM, and for storage, there is a 2TB Fusion 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 27" iMac with Retina 5K 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. The installed operating system is macOS High Sierra, and protection is provided by a limited 1-year warranty, which can be extended using AppleCare.

Please note that this Mac may come with an earlier version of macOS. You can upgrade to the latest version through the Mac App Store app.

General Features

27" Retina 5K IPS Display
Whether your iMac is in your studio, living room, or kitchen, the display is the focal point. With a 5120 x 2880 screen resolution and a 16:9 aspect ratio, you'll be able to playback 5K 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 580 graphics card and 8GB of vRAM, the iMac delivers 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 i7 Quad-Core processor that can reach a stock speed of 4.2 GHz. It can also be overclocked up to 4.5 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 32GB of 2400 MHz DDR4 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.
Up to 64GB RAM
The current 32GB memory configuration may be upgraded to a maximum of 64GB by using a 16GB chip in each of the four 260-pin SO-DIMM sockets.
FaceTime HD Camera
A built-in FaceTime HD camera allows users to use apps such as FaceTime and Skype for video calls.

    Apple iMac reviews

    27" iMac with Retina 5K Display (Mid 2017) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding product and service This is my very first Mac and so far I must say it beats the pants off ANY Windows system I've ever owned (and I've owned quite a few versions of Windows . . . Back to version 3). Everything works - period! The learning curve really isn't that bad either. Thank you B&H for the super quick shipping - I will do business with you again!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! These guys know how to conduct a business! I inquired with one of B&Hs salesmen about a iMac running logic pro x. He knew right away what I needed and recommended a great machine at a very competitive price. This item was shipped very fast and received in immaculate condition. I would definitely by from them again!”

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from fast and furious I'm a photographer and I use it basically with ON1, Lightroom and Photoshop. It's fast and the monitor is clear. It was a breeze to upgrade from my old one and to calibrate the monitor.

    Date published: 2018-01-29
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Superb fast machine!!! I own the Mac Mini - late 2014 with the i5 processor and 8gb memory and I had been using that to run Windows in a VM machine with the Mac OS booting from an external 1tb SSD as a do-all computer, but recently just had to upgrade because I was doing a lot more than usual and needed more VM's and needed to make converting h.264 to h.265 go a lot quicker. I was able to get the iMac on sale and B&H was able to hold it for a week until I got paid and once I did, I called up and ordered it. Within a couple of business days, it arrived. I unplugged the external SSD from my mac mini and plugged it into my iMac and everything booted up correctly. Rather than having 8gb memory, I now have 32gb and am able to have a lot more VM's open at the same time! I had a demo video conversion software that I ran on the mac mini and the conversion time for 20 gigabytes took nearly 23 hours to complete. With the iMac, I was able to convert about 25 gigabytes in just under an hour! For those using GoPro knows that 4k 30 video is 4gb for every 8 minutes and you can do the math when you record an hour or two a day. The iMac came with 7th generation i7 processor which by October of 2018 will be two generations behind. I find this typical with most Apple devices other than the iPhones. I could've waited a couple more months for new products came out, but I am at the point that I needed to either buy a PC or replace my Mac Mini with something with a lot more oomph and actually, despite being two generations behind (next month), this iMac flies!!!!! Everything is configured correctly to make that happen, including DDR4 memory and the ability to expand 32gb to 64gb and if I wanted to, I could change the fusion drive with an internal SSD drive later on. I intend to migrate everything to the fusion drive (2tb) and just use my SSD as a backup. I am very pleased with the speed. The i5 processor would've sufficed but having the extra cores allows me to easily add more VM's and switch between programs. Not only that, but the video conversion is happening in the background. I show on my resource meter that 20gb out of the 32gb is being used for the video conversion while 1gb is used for a Linux VM and 16gb is used for a Windows 10 VM. (how it adds up to 37gb, I don't know unless it is doing so as a pagefile or taking some memory away from the 16gb Windows 10 VM). My processor is hitting between 15-20% utilization for the conversion software, which is amazing. The videos are on a USB 3.0 external drive. The screen is huge, brilliant and the text detail is amazing. Beautiful, clear, and very precise. I am amazed at the resolution. Reminds me of a compaq laptop I had back in the 90's where the resolution was razor sharp and I can work on a huge spreadsheet easily. This monitor would do it. I would've preferred the 21.5" iMac, but you can't add more RAM and there are a couple other limitations on it. No worries, once you have the bigger monitor you will be quite happy. The BT magic keyboard and magic mouse 2 are awesome. For once, someone gets it right that these devices should have lithium-ion batteries inside them so that they can easily be charged and they did come with a charging cable that also fits the iPhone. Bravo! The minuscule magic keyboard looks funny sitting in front of this humongous 27" iMac, but I do appreciate the savings on the desk space with the smaller keyboard. I am learning to adapt to the smaller keyboard really well. For an all-around computer that does anything you can throw at it, this is the one. This is the kind of computer that when you buy it, you keep it for over ten years. It's worth spending the extra money for the extra oomph to plow through what you throw at it. Despite being a generation or two behind, it performs better than expected. The 8th generation i7 handles videos better but I haven't run into any obstacles regarding CPU, memory, or speed thus far. Now the bad.... I don't know how to address this problem or whom to reach out to, but the build quality of the glass is not that great for the iMac. Considering what we pay for these computers, we should expect better quality. It's like when you buy a Ford car made in America, the quality of the windshield is superb but when Ford imports their cars, the glass doesn't compare. This glass is bumpy and the screen isn't flat. It just doesn't look or feel right. I am not sure whether to send it back or whom to reach out to see if I can get it replaced. It is sad, really, because everything else about this computer rocks! I would think that QC would've caught this and had assumed that they had lasers or something checking the glass density throughout the plane of glass on this machine, especially since it is something that we have to sit in front of every day to do our work.
