This is a review of the Apple iMac summer 2010 all-in-one computer system. This article will inform you on improvements from the previous models to any known problems. User comments will also be considered important factors. All models have a similar main architecture so this information is valid for the entire line of Apple iMac Summer 2010 configurations.
I believe you would have to be a true Apple computer fanatic to like this machine. Of course, most Apple users are already fanatics. Many people that have reviewed this computer believe it to be too expensive and nothing special. Although entry models start at around $1199 you can get different configurations up to a 27 inch model costing around $1999. It is a great looking system and would be perfect for those that spend extra on decorating. This iMac will work for you with reasonable speed for normal computer functions. You will have to spend extra for an adapter if you want to hook it up using HDMI to your entertainment system. Forget about Blu-Ray, it won’t happen.
This iMac got a definite upgrade by running Apple OS X 10.6.4 with a 2.8GHz Intel Core i5 760, sporting a 3d 1GB ATI Radeon HD 5750 video chip, and 4GB 1,333MHz DDR2 memory. This computer does have some serious hardware for the price. This computer is hot, literally. The iMac seems to get a little more than warm when being used and that is considered a negative. It’s SDXC card slot accepts higher-capacity cards than it’s predecessors up to 2TB, which is a good thing.
Combining the beauty of this machine with using the wireless mouse, keyboard, and LAN connections, this Apple iMac Summer 2010 is truly a vision of the future. The Apple remote is still available as an option. Thanks to the new hardware upgrades, most Apple games should play quite well. Cloud gaming for the Apple’s is getting a good start on the Internet and Valve Software’s Steam service is making regular PC games available for the iMac user.
Personally, before I shelled out $1199 to $1999 on a computer such as this one I would rather put it all into PC hardware and load on Linux. To be fair this is a review of an Apple iMac Summer 2010 computer and not everyone thinks as I do, which is probably a good thing. Apple keeps amazing me with it’s ability to stay the course by thinking on it’s own terms. They have come a long way since the Apple I, II and the Lucy project. Competition breeds innovation, so I can hardly wait to see what’s next.
