The Apple iMac 27in (with Nvidia GeForce GTX 675M) certainly makes a case for itself. Of course, you'll certainly get better performance when you max out the memory and have an SSD on board, as our review model did. If you're a Mac maven who already has...

It's the granddaddy of the concept, yet the Apple iMac remains the most svelte and cool-looking all-in-one you can buy. See all PCs reviews . We've looked at the late-2012 27in iMac before, but this is a prime example of how selecting exactly the right...

Many 'late 2012' iMac owners are frustrated that the only user serviceable upgrade is memory. For the brave, however, there are other upgrades that are possible -- especially in the storage category. One such option for the 'late 2012' iMac (27") is...

The £2,179 or € 2,685 version of the 27-inch iMac is a very fast system, and it still of course has the outstanding 27-inch 2560x1440 display. We loved how the Fusion Drive works in MacOS X. It strikes the perfect balance between having a fast SSD and...

The 27in Apple iMac features the same impossibly thin design as its smaller brother, yet somehow seems even thinner and more impressive in this larger version. See: more reviews of Apple Macintosh computers . The screen itself is really very...

The 2012 generation of the 27" iMac is slimmer than ever (bye-bye DVD drive), and has lots of computing and gaming power. Oh yeah, and both the screen and audio are top-notch. This is one excellent all-in-one computer! All it really needs is a TV tuner...

The new iMac was introduced in late October, however trying to get your hands on one is not easy. Even now, if you choose a customized option as we did, you will need to wait for up to four weeks before you can get yours. Even ahead of its launch, rumors...

The 27-inch iMac we tested costs £1,699, and that's not nothing. You do get a very stylish computer in aluminium with above-average specifications. It has an excellent 27-inch display, a powerful processor, 8 GB of RAM and a fast graphics card. The...

The new, thinner, 27-inch iMacs are strikingly designed, but the loss of two convenient features—internal optical drives and built-in FireWire ports—dampens my enthusiasm for the makeover. The new iMac's drastically reduced glare and generous 8GB of RAM...

The 27-inch 2012 iMac has real style, but it doesn't sacrifice function to form. Its screen is excellent, has lots of power under the hood and the Fusion Drive option is a great alternative to a speedy-but-expensive SSD or a capacitous-but-slow HDD....

Apple's latest iMac range are hands down the nicest looking PCs currently on the market. But, with the 21in Apple iMac 2012 we found it lacked the performance to match its price, making it almost entirely a luxury purchase. So, equipped with more...

The 27in version of the new Apple iMac is – as you'd expect – even more expensive than its 21.5in all-in-one PC counterpart, but it's arguably the more attractive of the two. Besides, if you're going to fork out over £1,000 for a new machine then you...
