Q & As

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 40 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent and compact unit I already have an Apple iPad and love it. However it is restricted in the use of letter writing and others requirments this is all I require to meet the needs of my usage e.g. letters, photos, email etc 10 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Computer Fed up with Windows I bought one of these. Very easy to set up but very different in how it operates. If I get a problem I go to PC Classes Online where there are many many tutorials on every application. I am very quickly becoming proficient on the Mac and have no hesitation in giving it 5Stars 06 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better than windows! Just purchased the iMac Having being used to Dell and windows systems, this is far superior. I have an iPhone 5 and an iPad mini, so a little experience with Apple, but will be Apple all the time now. 24 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really useful product Really useful and easy to use: especially as I am not particularly computer literate 23 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent so far!! Having used Windows 3.1, 95, 98, ME, XP & 7 quite happily over the years. I found that Windows 8 was the most non-user friendly system ever created. So when it came to replace my old XP system I bit the bullet & bought the Mac. First impressions are very good. The build quality is superb, far better than anything I've had from Dell or the like. After about 4 or 5 hours I'm now getting to grips with the new system but it was well worth the switch. I've also downloaded Office 365 onto the machine (as I was paying for it anyway on my kids laptops) so I can access my work documents too. I've been converted I won't be going back to windows 15 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Apple does it again Fabulous machine. But then I've been an apple man for nearly 20 years. 11 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by DIGNITY RESTORED....... Can you imagine a 69 year old male swearing at a computer - how undignified - and so Windows 8 is now in the bin and order has been restored with an Apple iMac - how I wish all decisions in life were so easy !! 06 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A big mistake I thought I had made a big mistake when ordering my iMac, after all its not cheap. My old pc worked ok although I had to de-frag it every week or it would slow up and had to keep up with the anti virus because of all the nasties that would try to invade my computer. Mac's are a different ball game, once you get used to the way they work they are easier and you don't get bombarded with constant updates. My old pc had add-on speakers that collected dust, the iMac doesn't need them the sound is great and speaking of dust there are very few places for it to collect. If there is an award for computer design the iMac would win it no problem. 03 November 2014
