There is a simple reason why - NO OTHER DESKTOP ANYWHERE HAS A FULLY INTEGRATED OPERATING SYSTEM built with the hardware available in the consumer market. This integration is one of the foundations of OS X stability.
I bought this used on eBay last week, sixty-three months after it first shipped. I challenge you to find any other desktop that holds its value or utility better. It runs the current operating system in stock configuration (2G/250G) but I plan to up the RAM to beyond-spec at 6G and put in an SSD. That should probably get me to a snappier system that will keep up with most of the current installed base. For $40, I can also swap out the optical drive for a second internal bay and have an awesome machine for a while to come. I don't expect I'll be able to run 10.9 when it comes out as this is the oldest machine 10.8 will support. Still, would you try to run Windows 7 on a five year old Dell with only 2 gigs of RAM? Not a chance.
Until now, we have only owned PC's. We have been driving a horse & buggy when we could have been driving a Farrari. This Apple is so much easier to use and so much faster there is NO comparison. We are now going to get rid of my wifes PC and get her an Apple also.
I would recommend the Apple to anyone who is buying a new computer. You absolutely will not regret it.
Everything about Apple's products are build with presentation in mind. The current OS X 10.6 is solid with this iMac. USB ports and the power button are found on the back of the monitor. The sound and picture are adequate. I have no complains but only a solid recommendation.
Its smooth, sleek looking, great performance for its age in all programs, even the most modern. Low end gaming, but hey, at least it games period. Excellent work on photos, videos, music, and the internet. Not to mention how completely amazing it looks. The first incarnation of the now standard Aluminum and Glass, its large face just commands attention when you see it on a desk. It runs really quiet, though it comes with some high heat (the top can burn your hand after intensive usage). It performs best with a full 4GB of RAM, though you can add in an extra 2GB (4GB+2GB) to have 6GB for high memory tasks like Photoshop and virtualization. You can even upgrade the processor, if you're daring enough, and sneak even more performance from it. The graphics, sadly, are stuck as a bottom of the line 3D card...but its encoding abilities and 2D animations are smooth as glass. Despite the '18-bit' screen, even with my pictures and videos, it looks very good, high color, high contrast, ESPECIALLY after manual calibration.
If you're looking for a quick in to what Mac is all about, this is it. You can even use it as a stepping stone to better things, but all in all, good computer. Buy it, use it, love it.
