Mac Format - - STORE GUIDE -

Ever since the fa­mous Bondi Blue iMac de­buted way back in Au­gust 1998, Ap­ple’s all-in-one desk­top com­puter has been set­ting stan­dards in gor­geous de­sign and pow­er­ful per­for­mance. Ap­ple’s spirit of in­no­va­tion was as clear back then as it is to­day – the iMac was the first Macin­tosh to aban­don the floppy disk in favour of USB ports, and its bright, colour­ful aes­thetic set it apart as a play­ful pre­tender in a world of staid beige boxes.

These days Ap­ple is again push­ing bound­aries with the iMac, blessing all of its 27-inch mod­els with the world’s best dis­play, which has a mas­sive 5K (5120x2880) res­o­lu­tion. Add in a quad-core In­tel Core i5 pro­ces­sor (con­fig­urable from 3.2GHz up to 4.0GHz), 8GB of RAM, a fast and ca­pa­cious Fu­sion Drive, and a pow­er­ful AMD Radeon R9 graph­ics pro­ces­sor – and the large iMac is the desk­top sys­tem to own. In 2015, Ap­ple low­ered the price of the top-spec 27-inch model by £150 and in­tro­duced the first 21.5-inch iMac with a Retina 4K dis­play. All iMacs (ex­cept the en­try-level, 21.5‑inch model) have a quad-core pro­ces­sor.
