Q & As

Rated 5 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Top quality product Superb quality product as you expect from Apple,very easy to setup and use. Faultless delivery from John Lewiis to my local Waitrose store,with excellent notification of the status of my order. 23 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Don't know why I didn't do it before Bought an iMac to replace a long series of Windows PCs. Wish I had done it earlier. OS X Yosemite is a joy to use unlike Windows 7 and the machine itself is extremely stylish, unlike my Mesh tower. Disappointments are few - having to pay extra for a DVD Writer is the main one (I bought a Samsung at one third of the price of the Apple one). Compared with a Windows computer, the price is a little high, but having gone over completely to Apple (iPhone 6, 5C, IPad Air 2 and Mini 3 and Classic iPod) I can appreciate the quality and design of Apple products, their superiority over Windows products and I now have a fully integrated home computer system. 24 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Top Quality This is a replacement for our first iMac computer( we had eight years trouble free use but needed to upgrade to latest version) and it does exactly what it says on the tin. We had a slight problem with the internet settings when we first set it up, so I contacted the Apple helpline and the problem was resolved over the phone. After ten minuets everything was sorted out and it now runs perfectly. The iMac is a joy to use. 24 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Why didn't I do this earlier? What a fantastic tool this computer is. The changeover over of files was really straight forward and you soon get used to the new system. Fantastic 24 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Vey user friendly After years of using windows vista we decided to try the Apple iMac. Most impressed with the display and the easy to use operating system. Used the John Lewis click and collect, to purchase. Very quick and easy even just after xmas. 27 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Long awaited for, Product The Service from John Lewis was excellent, the 3 year gaurentee was very welcome. The Product its self, meets all my expectations, as well as it being another excellent Apple product it is also slim, stream line, a very nice piece of Office furniture. 16 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Why didn't I switch years ago Always been a Microsoft PC person and 6 year old PC needed changing so was persuaded by an avid Apple fan to look at the IMac. Did my research asked Mac users and made the jump and it's a pity I waited so long. An amazing machine. All in one and wireless keyboard and mouse so no trailing wires everywhere. The operating system took some getting used to but with the help of a MAC for Beginners book I am getting the hang of it. The only downside is that I will probably now change my Android phone and Tablet to Apple. 11 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
