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.

Late 2013 27" iMac

By Hans

from Sierra Vista, Arizona

Verified Buyer

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

Just received my new 27" iMac from B&H. It replaced one of my Minis. The huge screen is somewhat overwhelming at first. The colors are brilliant even though it is not the Retina version. Setup was simple and took less than 30 minutes. Had to move it much further back on my desk due to its size. The price cannot be beat for a new iMac even though it is a late 2013 model. The computer has all the warranties, like 90 days phone and one year full service. Besides it is eligible for additional two years of Apple care. The savings are worth every penny of it.

A new later date Imac

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

My wife was looking for a desktop computer for reliability and loves her apple products. After researching several product lines and retail facilities, I was surprised to find a new 2013 IMac available at B &H for a $600 savings. My wife is pleased and I have money to purchase that special shop tool I am sure I need.

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

I bought this computer because my old Mac was showing signs of obsolescence, I do a lot of photography. The screen is fantastic. My one complaint is that the new "photos" does not allow for the same depth of editing that iphoto did. I will be relying moe on Adobe now.

Excellent replacement for 8 year old imac.

By Ken

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

I edit photos in Adobe CC; Lightroom and Photoshop. I was using a 24" iMac, which is in failing health after 8 years. No repair was ever done. I did upgrade the RAM to 4gb, which is the maximum for that machine. We have come a long way in 8 years. This new computer comes with 8 gb. I will up the RAM, which is very easy to do. I could not tell the difference between the retina display and the standard display. So far this computer performs flawlessly.

Great computer. I work with a lot of mapping software, after years of struggling on smaller monitors with older eyes, mapping properties is now a breeze. After upgrading the memory to 16 GB the power drawing software runs faster than it ever has. Awesome computer!

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

I had grown tired of processing photos on a 15" laptop, and this is a whole new experience. The 27" screen is great, and it doesn't bother me that it is not the latest and greatest screen available. It is very clear, and allows for having multiple windows open to work on at once. When I start working on Photoshop or Lightroom, I then change the view to full screen. Speed is more than adequate for those two power hungry programs. For the money spent, I think it is a great computer.

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.

        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.
