    The upgrades to the latest Apple iMac are largely underwhelming, but the computer retains its excellently crafted design. It's still an outstanding machine, but the smaller keyboard, lack of included remote and the fact that no display adapters are included are all negatives considering the high... Read more

    • Design remains superb, good performance, Apple attention to detail, all-in-one casing saves space
    • Exorbitant price, no included Apple remote, keyboard has no number pad, rear casing gets hot, only RAM can be upgraded, no adapters included for DVI or VGA connections

    Apple's smaller-scale iMac remains our favorite all-in-one. And while its looks, its ease of use, and its performance are all selling points, Windows PCs are starting to catch up (at least with the latter). Read more

    • Industry leading design, Best all-in-one overall for its price, Strong digital media performance, Broad range of connectivity options, Easy to use operating system
    • Smaller screen than some newer all-in-ones, Puny hard drive for its price, Disproportionately expensive memory upgrades, Lame 90-day phone support

The iMac competes with the PC desktop market now better than perhaps any previous Mac to date, but the added cost of the larger, faster model might... Read more

    • Industry-leading design, Big, beautiful display, Excellent application performance
    • Higher-end model features same midrange graphics card of lower-end models, Free phone support ends after 90 days, Might want to hold off until Leopard is released to save yourself the cost of an OS upgrade

    With its super-elegant new design and a strong configuration, Apple's new iMac competes with the PC desktop market better than perhaps any previous Mac to date. Unless you're a gamer or an upgrade enthusiast, we can think of very few reasons not to make an iMac your next desktop. Read more

    • Best-in-class design and solid feeling, Thin keyboard, More performance and features than many Windows-based PCs, Robust iLife '08 digital media suite.
    • No word on means of upgrading to Apple's new Leopard OS when it's released, Anemic phone support.
