Product information

The stunning all-in-one iMac features a beautiful 21.5-inch widescreen display, fourth generation quad-core Intel Core processors and Nvidia graphics make it the most powerful iMac yet. And it comes as standard with 8GB memory, a 1TB hard drive and advanced, high-speed connections, including two Thunderbolt ports, four USB 3 ports and 802.11ac Wi-Fi. All in an impossibly thin enclosure that’s only 5mm at the edge.

Fourth-generation quad-core processors
Intel's fourth generation quad-core i5 processor provides stunning performance for anything from web browsing to video editing. The fourth generation of Intel's fabled processors also help to keep you and your personal information safer, thanks to built-in security features.

NVIDIA 700-series graphics
Nvidia's GeForce GT 750M dedicated graphics card with 1GB of video memory will help deliver faster, smoother and more engaging graphics. The 700 series of graphics cards are designed to be whisper quiet, so you won't be disturbed by loud whirrings while you're editing HD videos and images or playing your favourite games.

Stunning ultrathin design
iMac's premium aluminium casing and glass display make for a stunning, modern looking machine, that looks as good as it performs. It's incredibly thin, measuring just 5mm at its edge, but still manages to pack a remarkable amount of high performance technology into the same amazingly thin enclosure.

Brilliant widescreen Full HD display
The display uses IPS technology and LED backlighting to ensure that images and videos look great from any seat. The LCD sits right against the ultrathin glass, bringing content closer to you, while the colours have been individually calibrated to deliver rich and vibrant true-to-life colours.

High-speed Connectivity
iMac is packed full of connectivity options, including 802.11ac Wi-Fi, giving you superior performance over an 802.11ac router. It also packs four USB 3.0 ports for then times the performance of USB 2.0, two Thunderbolt ports for connecting compatible monitors and hard drives for data transfer at rapid speeds. It also includes Bluetooth, an SD card slot, Ethernet port and a Mini DisplayPort.

Q & As

My lovely iMac After having numerous problems with my laptop decided to look for a new computer. Through recommendations and research decided to opt for the iMac and all I can say is love it, love it, love it. I am still getting my head round the difference from Windows but so far so good. Had a problem that I could not sort out so needed to contact Apple who's help and customer service was second to none. It is different from Windows but more user friendly and compared to my laptop so quick. I really can't recommend this enough and as usual the service from John Lewis was great added to which they offered the three year guarantee which others didn't. Thought the iPad was brilliant but this is equally as good. 27 August 2014
top mac what a great piece of electronics first class so quick fantastic. 27 May 2014
iMac All in One My first full Apple Desktop, I converted from a PC through using iPad and iPhone for several years. Light, quiet, quick and the differences in the Mouse and OS soon fade from memory. Not cheap but it oozes quality and the auto synchronisation of photos, calendars, etc with my other devices makes life a lot easier.. Used for two months or so so cannot speak for longevity but I am very pleased I chose the iMac. 27 May 2014
Brilliant! I wish I had bought a Mac years ago it's so easy to use. Yes, there were teething problems after using a PC for 20 or so years but I would not go back to the old machine! My only complaint is that it is not possible to buy manuals anymore for Macs or even to down load them, which I really miss. Mac's Customer Service have been very helpful also John Lewis sales people. 24 May 2014
great product Wanted a mac computer for a while as wanted high spec computer that lasted. Really good specification easy to set up (I'm no computer expert) and so far not been let down. 20 May 2014
Brilliant Computer Looks great, is great.very user friendly. Excellent 15 April 2014
Best Xmas buy ever The new Apple desktop is slim, fast, reliable. Built in camera and microphone make it a perfect choice for work and play. Also noticed that a desktop computer gives you many more choices on any particular internet site than an ipad. 15 January 2014
