Mac Format - - STORE GUIDE -

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

To­day, Ap­ple is again push­ing bound­aries with the iMac, bless­ing all of its 27-inch mod­els with a mas­sive 5K (5120x2880) res­o­lu­tion and a wide P3 colour gamut. Add in In­tel Core i5 and i7 CPUs (con­fig­urable from 3.4GHz up to 4.2GHz), a fast and ca­pa­cious Fu­sion Drive, and pow­er­ful AMD Radeon RX graph­ics pro­ces­sors, and the 27-inch iMac is the desk­top sys­tem to own. At WWDC in June 2017, Ap­ple re­freshed the en­tire range of iMacs, with dis­crete GPUs com­ing to all but the en­try-level model, newer In­tel CPUs, brighter Retina dis­plays and more Thun­der­bolt 3 ports.
