Powerful and Stable Performance
This is the first Mac I've ever owned myself. I've had plenty of experience using them, but at home I've used Windows and Linux for a long time. Whereas the price of Macs always kept me away from buying, I've always known from my Mac-head friends that they last longer, perform better, and are composed of higher quality parts. So, I needed a new machine, because my Dell isn't doing well, and I saved up and bought the iMac.
I admit to being seriously impressed. It's by far the quickest responding machine I've ever owned. It's also exceedingly stable. Currently my iMac has been running for about a month straight without crashing, needing to restart, or even slowing down one bit, and I've been running resource intensive applications such as Ableton Live along with a slew of software synth plugins, and the Netbeans IDE and the Eclipse IDE. All along video chatting with people over Skype.
Oddly enough, and this is very strange, after an update to iTunes, iTunes began to perform strangely, like it sometimes won't respond right away to mouse clicks or keyboard shortcuts. Who knows what that's about though. The only other complaint I have is that the keyboard is really quite small, and I have big hands. I'd also like to have a numeric keypad on the right hand side in addition to the keys above.
I am very pleased with my iMac. Just how resource efficient it is while running my Digital Audio Workstation apps is reason enough. If you need a powerful machine with rock solid stability then consider one of these iMacs. Or if you can afford it then get a Mac Pro tower with 12 cores and 64GB of memory!Read full review

Does what it should
I love Apple. This computer is not an exception.
This is not my main computer, so it did not need to be super nice or powerful. It does what is expected of it, at a far lower price then new. Ohh ad ssd to make it better :)

Very nice product and works fast
I updated hard drive to 500gb ssd when i got it and upgraded memory to 14gb, It is fast and works really well. It was real good before I put upgrade in it, but I had the parts on hand so I upgraded, Very pleased with purchase.

Get one. You won't regret it.
I love my iMac. I use it daily. My MacBook Pro is starting to collect dust now that I have my iMac!!
