The Apple iMac 21.5-inch (Core 2 Duo), the "baby brother" to the 27-inch iMac, is $500 less expensive, yet has much of same power. It slots easily into the niche between the cheap nettops and the expensive HDTV-replacement PCs: It's the all in one...

Despite its good looks and a few useful new features, Apple's new iMac is all about business. You can find a larger screen for less, not to mention all kinds of digital entertainment features, but no other all-in-one at this price can boast similar...

Apple’s latest iMacs are noticeably refined compared to their predecessors, though they aren’t significantly different. Both 21.5in models are quite powerful and their 1080p LED-backlit displays are certainly vibrant....
