Apple G4 iMac 7-minute introduction video
Video Rating: 4 / 5

My full review of Apple’s new 27-inch iMac with a Quad-Core 2.93 GHz Intel Core i7 processor. The new iMacs feature Intel’s Core i3, i5, and i7 CPUs and updated ATI graphics processors, while retaining their screen sizes of 21.5 and 27-inch configurations. The new CPU line up starts out at a dual-core 3.06 and 3.2 GHz Core i3 CPUs, a 2.8 and 3.6 GHz Core i5, and a 2.93 GHz quad-core Core i7. Memory configurations start out at 4 GB and the iMac can support up to 16 GB of RAM. New to the iMac is an optional 256 GB solid state drive for the 27-inch Macs. The SSD drives can be used as a primary or secondary hard drive. Graphics wise, 21.5-inch iMacs ship with either a Radeon HD 4670 with 256 MB or a Radeon HD 5670 with 512 MB. The 27-inch iMacs ship with a Radeon HD 5670 with 512 MB of RAM and offer an optional Radeon HD 5750 with 1 GB of RAM. The quad-core i7 iMac comes standard with the 5750. Pricing starts out at 99 for the base and up to 99 for the 2.93 GHz quad-core. www.apple.com Looking for more Mac related video reviews? Check out my Mac OS playlist! www.youtube.com

    So there’s iMac, Mac pro, and what else? And which one is better as far as performance? I have the iMac core2dou yeah its a 2006, but I’m not into game graphics or any big stuff just your everyday computer use.

    @Efinos11 Really, surprise me a lot. As i have a late 2006 white Imac and feels extremely silent and never hot even now, 5 years later. I don´t know why changed materials, i loved the white ones. I can´t be sure, but i think the polycarbonate from those macs was better for refrigeration than the aluminium. For what i know they changed because a “plastic” computer “looked cheaper”. That issue worries me as i plan to buy a new Imac. That and that trendy glossy screen. I prefer non-glossy screens

    @wwwinsanelygreatmac
    I noticed that when the room temperature is high it gets very hot and drops when the heating is off. i have iSTAT installed in mine to monitor the CPU, HD, Temperatures and the CORE perfomances. the graphic card i suspect heat hot when i work with color or any editing software. This heat occurs only on the topmost part of the system. in terms of the speed how will you compare i7 and i5, does i7 worth the extra pay?

    @nate1mizzou

    PLEASE READ MY EXPERIENCE
    i just bought the 27′ i5 but the heat is too much that could not allow you to place your hand on the top of the system for 30seconds. the upper casing becomes very hot. i hope everyone that has this model experience this. its still within the 14days trial.

    please can someone advice?

    @Cobra1Alpha It’s getting late in the product life cycle. No one knows, but with the new Sandy Bridge chips out I’d expect to see an update sooner rather than latter.

    Hey there, I plan on buying one of these just for general use like internet use, watching videos, music for my Zune, and Lightroom for editing my photos. Will this computer do all that just fine, especially for mid/heavy internet use. I had PC’s all my life that were always bought used and I’m tired of having slow pieces of crap, I want this beast for its speed and is gorgeous display.

    Seems like a very nice machine, however, unfortunately – I heard that you’d have to prove to the Apple dealer that you’re a full blown homo in order to buy one. That’s too bad – so I will never be able to come by an Apple. Darn!!!

    @TheMrDisser Actually a similarly spec’d system say from Dell will run you about the same amount, possibly more if you’re trying to get a screen as nice as the iMac. As for “more programs”, I’m not sure where you’re headed with that one, and you can easily burn Blu-ray’s on your iMac with an external drive. My buddy has one, and it works like a charm. With things going digital these days though, why not just stream the content you have to the device you want ?
