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 8GB of 2400 MHz DDR4 RAM. Visuals are powered by a dedicated AMD Radeon Pro 575 graphics card with 4GB of vRAM, and for storage, there is a 1TB 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 575 graphics card and 4GB 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 8GB 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
While the current 8GB memory configuration is made up of two 4GB modules, the memory can be upgraded to a maximum of 64GB, 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 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I adore this computer!! My main goal was to increase speed and productivity as a video producer, since my old iMac was slowing down. The iMac Pro seemed like overkill for my small-biz needs and budget, but THIS computer with an upgrade to the i7 processor has been INCREDIBLE!! The display looks amazingly clear, the screen is a great size, but mostly, it’s fast like lightning!! Love it!! ??

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trinity I started with an iPad a few years ago and 3 months ago got rid of my android phone for a new iPhone 8+. So when my PC was to be replaced this month I did the only logical thing, I bought an iMac. �The trinity is now complete and I couldn't be happier. �Although the operating system is different then the PC the logic of it is light years ahead. �It is seamless in operation, powerful, easy to navigate, and extremely well constructed. �I highly recommend this product and B&H.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Over Hill and Dell to the Apple Tree OK, backstory... I've been using a late 2008 iMac that I purchased new. It was a great machine for the time and still in use for minor tasks. For 6 years I have been working on a Dell Optiplex 990, 3.4 GHz machine with 24 GB of RAM for my daily driver at the office. This machine has been great and I actually enjoy working with it and Windows 7. But on the home front the 24" iMac just wasn't cutting the mustard any longer and I groused at the machine for years. I assumed that I would be purchasing a PC for my next computer and window shopped incessantly for just the right computer to meet my needs. Eventually, I decided to stay with the all-in-one concept as the PC market was making headway with lots of different models and options. I eventually decided to purchase a Dell Inspiron 27 7775 AiO footprint with 16 GB RAM and the AMD Radeon 580 GPU. I loved the clean look of the machine and price new was less than the comparable iMac here at B&H. Being the penny pincher that I am - I had purchased many Mac products over the years as refurbished and they all looked new, were well packaged and ran without issue - I decided to purchase a Certified Refurbish unit from the Dell outlet store. As I mentioned, I loved the look and features of the Inspiron 27 7775 with its infinity edge screen and thin bezel and easy upgradability, plus I relied on previous experience in purchasing refurbished Macs to sway the final decision. So I ordered the refurbished Dell with Windows 10 and all the power I needed to run Photoshop and Illustrator for my work at home. When the package arrived and I opened it there were no red flags... until I turned the unit on. I was immediately greeted by some sort of Windows decision prompt telling me of some disk issue that I had never seen, or heard of before and I’ve been working on a PC for over 6 years. I immediately called Dell support, since I did purchase the premium support package for this machine, and was connected quickly to a very courteous and helpful person that walked me through the initial process. I gave the support person access to remote into the machine and after a bit of time all kinds of things started to go south for this computer; eventually we did get into the desktop area only to have the computer abruptly crash with the screen going black and an odd video pattern cover the screen. After 24 hours of intermittent support and resetting the machine back to factory settings I told the support person that I was done with this machine. Graciously, I was given a refund and I came back to the world of Macintosh which brought me to B&H. The 2017 27” iMac, as sold by B&H, has all the bells and whistles that the Dell had and more! I decided that I would purchase a new Mac to counter the previous experience, knowing that the machine I got would be bug free from any issue that I had encountered with the Dell purchase. Yes, I paid more for this unit, but it is just as beautiful in its timeless design and certainly and powerhouse of a machine with the Intel i7 CPU and the AMD 580 GPU with 8 GB of RAM, and there is something to be said about the value of having the peace and mind of knowing you made a good purchase. The 5K screen is stunning and a delight for the eyes. While I only purchased the 8 GB of RAM it’s plenty for now and I’ll soon upgrade that in the near future. I can’t say enough for the B&H purchasing experience and the savings over the same machine purchased elsewhere. There are drawbacks, although no fault of B&H… I’m talking about the iMac’s small Magic Keyboard and Magic mouse. The mouse in particular is disappointing. It’s super low profile makes it very difficult for doing the type of work I want to do in the apps I use. The sliding scroll surface is cool but I find the mouse fills awkward and fatigues my hand rather quickly, so that was the first thing that I put aside. I pulled out an older Logitech wireless mouse to use now and will replace it and the keyboard with Logitech components. Specifically, the Logitech Craft Keyboard and the G603 Lightspeed Wireless Gaming Mouse. I high recommend B&H for a purchase such as the iMac, but also for all your photographic and video needs. Service is prompt and support is always a chat away when you are on the web site, whether you are just shopping and in need of help. In conclusion… I wanted to love the Dell, and perhaps I would have if purchased new, but in the end the experience me on a journey that quickly help me refocus my love of the iMac.
