What Should You Know Before You Buy An iMac? Even though we are living in a mobile-device world where people use laptops, tablets, and notebooks for doing their work, iMacs are still the top preference of many corporate offices, colleges, and homes. Apple has revived its desktop computers with the 2019 iMac models which come with certain upgrades.
iMacs today are of great value, has amazing built-in features, comes in a compact design and best for visual as well as audio work. Apple has introduced the 9th- generation core i9 intel processor in its latest iMac models. With these upgrades, iMacs are the perfect option for doing your office-work or school assignments & projects.
Though the latest iMac models are way better and more efficient than the previous ones, you still need to check some factors before you could place the iMac on your desk. These factors are important because Apple currently sells 4 different models of iMac, including the iMac 4K, iMac 5K, iMac Pro and iMac Pro Mini.
So which iMac model you should buy for your work and whether you should buy an iMac or not depends on certain factors. Without wasting any further minutes, let’s take a look at the various different factors and aspects of an iMac which you should know before buying an iMac.
Apple has worked on the software of its desktop computers, the iMac. No doubt the software of an iMac is one of the best software in the tech market. Apple has introduced many built-in features and upgrades in iMac’s software that has made it an all-in-one desktop. iMac is a great computer for people who spend most of their time working on software and needs more software features rather than hardware.
In contrast to software, the iMac is not the perfect choice of computers for individuals who need more hardware specifications. Though Apple has improved and upgraded the software for its iMac the computer lacks major hardware features. iMac does not offer user-configurable hardware flexibility, and hence it’s not a good choice for someone who wants more hardware features.
iMac comes in two major variations; the one with the user-accessible RAM slots and one with “no upgradeable RAM.” if you are considering buying the 21.5 inch iMac then you must know that this model does not come with user-accessible slots. The RAM in this model is directly soldered to its mother-board. Apple introduced and favored the internal RAM slots which are why it dropped the user-accessible RAM.
But don’t worry, here is a piece of good news for you. Apple has never failed to amaze its consumers. It has introduced the four user-accessible RAM slots in the 27 inch iMac model. It means that the users can easily expand and upgrade the RAM. the 27 inch iMac Pro allows its users to upgrade the RAM up to 128 GB.
When it comes to the display of any computer you have to look for both the size and its type. iMac comes into two different display sizes the 21.5 inches and 27 inches. Both these display sizes are good, which comes with IPS LCD panels and LED backlighting.
It means that users can enjoy the perfect wide view, with an amazing large contrast range and great color precision. The iMac has a very glossy display and it doesn’t come with a matte display, so the only possible downside could be the glare.
The other aspect of the display is its type. Just as the size, Apple uses two different display resolutions in iMac. You could either buy a Retina-display or the Standard-display iMac. Let’s talk about Standard-display first. The standard displays provide ‘1920 by 1080’ and ‘2560 by 1440’ resolution. However, the Retina-display provides a better resolution of ‘4096 by 2304’ and ‘5120 by 2880’. Further, with Retina display the users can have an anti-glare display.
Some of the other aspects that you need to look at include the storage, speed, graphics, and processor of the iMac. Usually, the 21.5 inch iMac comes with a 5400 RPM 1 TB hard drive and the 27 inch iMac has 1 TB Fusion. But you can always upgrade the storage of 27 inch iMac from 1 TB up to 3 TB and 7200 RPM hard drive. Apple iMac users can also use external storage as Apple has introduced 3 USB ports.
An iMac is a great option for those users who want speed and great processors. The new and latest iMac provides high and efficient performance as it comes with 9th- generation core i9 processors. In the last don’t forget about to check the graphics of the iMac. Today the iMac models provide 3 different graphics options including, AMD Radeon graphics, NVIDIA-based graphics, and Intel integrated GPUs.
Now we know what iMac has to offer us. iMac 5K is a good computer but it neither has the core i9 intel processor nor the retina display. On the other when it comes to iMac 4K it has both the retina as well as the standard display and 9th generation processor. But the best iMac model is the iMac pro that has all the features. In the last, to sum up, the discussion, it is not wrong to say that the iMac is indeed a great computer option even today when everyone is using laptops and tablets. No doubt, iMac is an expensive desktop-computer but it worth spending the money!
