Apple iMac 27" ... converted! Lifelong PC user, so for me it was a major step to move to a Mac. Having bought an iPad and an iPhone it seemed logical to move to a Mac. It was a bit daunting at first, but Apple 'talk' you through it, it couldn't have been easier, and I will never go back to a PC. Purchased from John Lewis, service is always good and delivery smack on time. I am also a convert to John Lewis! 17 June 2014
27" imac first time with mac, brilliant screen, overall appearance fantastic love the mouse and keyboard. 04 June 2014
iMac Brilliant, fast and beautiful! The iMac does everything you want it to do and looks wonderful too. 06 May 2014
Great Product A fantastic computer/music centre/photo library! Easy to use, beautiful to look at and admired by friends and family alike. 22 April 2014
Very good product The screen is the stand out feature. The resolution is very high, making photos and films/videos look amazing. The size is very useful for viewing multiple documents at once, without multiple monitors. As you would expect for a computer at this price point, it runs very smoothly even during multitasking using word, excel, pdfs, internet etc. I had previously only ever used windows but once you get used to it, the Mac operating system is very easy to use. The computer also looks beautiful. 31 December 2013
Great computer Have thought about purchasing an iMac for a while. Took the plunge a couple of weeks ago. Everything about it is fantastic. It Is a beautiful machine and performs every task with ease. The graphics are awesome. 10 out of 10 to Apple. 27 November 2013
Super fast and 2 year warranty Bought this to replace a 2009 iMac. Excellent upgrade with a brilliant display and nice specification. Stood waiting to buy this in the manufacturers store for 20 minutes but they couldn't be bothered with me (they are all very important). Walked across the street to John Lewis straight to a very pleasant chap who couldn't have been more helpful. Didn't think they would have stock as it had only just been released but they did and 10 minutes later I was walking away with my iMac very happy. 2 year warranty is a bonus but I would recommend the 3 year option as well or Applecare as these machines will be very hard to repair due to the way the display is glued in. 13 October 2013
