Verified Purchase
I bought this iMac to replace my previous 20" iMac that was 8 years old. I stayed with the Apple name brand, because of ingenuity that Windows has never caught up with and 8 years virus free (in the 8 years of owning my iMac we went through 3 Windows laptops with Norton installed due to viruses). I was blown away with how far Apple has come in gaming since I purchased my first iMac. I had just determined to do most of my gaming on my Xbox 360, but once I began using this new generation iMac I realized that tons of games are now produced Mac compatible. I bought Diablo 3 and put the settings on the highest quality. It runs it masterfully.

I was also impressed that all of the iLife suite is now included for free! That is the equivalent of Windows throwing Microsoft Office for free....except that the Mac software makes Office look ancient. If you are worried that the Mac operating system will be too difficult to adjust to, don't! It is by far the easiest operating system I've ever encountered. Also, Microsoft just recently overhauled Windows with the release of Windows 8, so what a better time to switch? My 8 year old iMac is still running like the day I bought it; I just transferred it to my daughter.

Buying the iMac on Amazon will save you about $125. That's $25 less than the teacher discount that my wife could have received by buying through Apple. Plus zero tax and free shipping. The only downfall is that you don't get to choose between the magic mouse and the trackpad. I prefer the trackpad, but if you buy through Amazon then it will ship with the magic mouse. I just took the trackpad from my 8 year old iMac and gave the new magic mouse to my daughter.

One more thing....spend the extra money and go for the 27" screen! It is amazing! Clearly made for multitasking!

I've been an IT manager the past 16 years of my life and made pretty good living at it, still going strong. My 2-cents on iMAC 27" is if you really decided to go MAC, and you get passed the Apple exclusivity and compatibility issues, go for the top end model. This thing eats up 5GB of RAM upon boot-up, so don't kid yourself about getting a model with 8GB of RAM, it won't do. Make sure you go for a model with SSD and core-i7 processor too. The iMac 27 (late 2013) core-i5 model I got was crawling with original specs, its 8GB of RAM, 1TB hard drive, and core-i5 3.2Ghz processor. Boot up, open itunes, mail, and calendar apps and your RAM is at 100% and you're in swap. OS itself was another big let down for me but that's a "hate it or love it" item and is really a matter of preference. In my view, the device as well as OS are very polished and pretty on the eyes, but that's about it. If you're into multimedia manipulation, you'll come to love the available array of very expensive apps. Other than that, using it for work or school is simply too convoluted and expensive. I returned my iMac after just few days of use, got my $2K refund, and got myself a nice HP Pavilion with a crisp 27" IPS LED Monitor at less than half the cost$. The comparably spec'ed PC and Windows OS performs 500% faster and more productive with resource allocation and I don't deal with any exclusivity non-sense. The security by obscurity aspect of Apple is quickly diminishing as well as there are plenty of vulnerabilities for MAC OS out there now and it's recommended to run an antimalware / antivirus app. So again, in summary, if you're set on the eyecandy Apple device, go for the top end model, otherwise I would not bother. Thank you for reading.

I love the iMac's simple and elegant design that runs well and looks good.

If you keep your computer for less than 3 years or so, then just buy the iMac and be done with it.

But if you intend to keep the iMac for longer than that, consider the negative consequences of the iMac's all-in-one design:

I have a 24-inch iMac that is about five years old; it was still running well until two weeks ago when it refused to turn on.

I then had to lug this big and heavy monster (the current 27 incher is even bigger) to an Apple Store. I was told that a memory controller chip on the system board was bad. Since the computer was way past its warranty period, a system board swap would cost nearly half the cost of a new iMac. If I postpone a replacement a few years more, there may not even be a board available. Probably in consideration of cost and turn-around time, Apple doesn't repair a computer, it replaces failed components (and if the failed component is on the system board, the whole board is replaced), which ultimately contributes to higher average cost.

Because of the high cost of "repairing" the iMac, I have been hesitant in getting the job done right away. Is it worthwhile to pay half the cost of a new iMac to revive a five years old iMac? Even after repair, other than the replacement system board (may not be new), everything else (the beautiful monitor, power supply, DVD drive, etc.) is still five years old and may fail in the next few years. As a consequence, most people in this situation decide to buy a new one instead. I am sure Apple is happy about the new business.

What really upsets me is that the big and beautiful monitor becomes USELESS once you decide not to fix the iMac.
