Q & As

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Unquestionable quality Expensive maybe But its worth the expense There is no denying all Apple products ooze style, its clearly evident in their high quality packaging, you may be paying considerably more for the honour of ownership but its an honour millions of consumers are willing to take. They have singlehandedly cornered the tablet market with the legendary IPad even though just about every other tablet costs quite a bit less. Apple have sold in excess of 130million Ipads over the years and their I Phone is a must have accessory for every mobile user. Sensibly Apple have developed their own software with Microsofts blessing titled "Bootcamp" that will allow the user to run a separate Microsoft Windows application on their Imac computers, and only recently Microsofts Bill Gates has signed a deal with Apple to start writing compatible software for both systems after so many years dominating the market, now that's what I call an endorsement for Apples products from the worlds leading computer software giant. I would far rather use either Safari or Windows 7 on a monitor that looks and performs like an Apple Imac. Each Apple component is individually tested and issued a personal serial number for traceability. The Apple may cost you considerably more but when it looks and performs this well WHO CARE'S 18 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic how could you not be over the moon when you buy one of these! Love it. 22 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The bees knees Apple I Mac me089b/a big investment but what a performer it's taking some time to get my head around it mainly because of the different lay out ,how ever once your there the rest is intuitive . The help menus are easy to follow and apps are easy to down load security is great. Key board and mouse are fine though some May find key board a bit small and with such a large screen mousing round the screen takes a bit of movement . The screen is sharp and bright colour is wonderful photography is my thing. The Mac picked up all of my stand alone hard drives and printers with no intervention from me . In built speakers are fine all in all a great PC you can see why professionals of all types seem to have them on there desks. Finally if the three year guarantee that johnlewis provided with product doesn't say it all about the quality then I don't no what does. 14 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A Excellent Piece of Kit ..... 4.5 STARS As an experienced Windows user for many years I can honestly say that I'm very impressed. The iMac boasts a fantastic screen, which in my opinion is its main selling point, however I do disagree with all the Apple enthusiasts that Mac OS X is better than Windows. It is very good don't get me wrong, but Windows is no longer as unstable as it was a few years ago. Mac OS X is extremely memory hungry and I have already had to upgrade to 24GB of RAM from the 8GB supplied with the machine, as I was utilising the swap partition very quickly running iTunes, Photoshop, Lightroom and a few other related programs. Finder, the Mac OS equivalent of Windows Explorer is nowhere near as efficient, especially when it comes to the ordering and moving of files. It is however, simply a different way of doing things, which I'm sure I'll become accustomed to in time. An overall slick product, coupled with first class John Lewis service and piece of mind provided by an unrivalled after sales 3 year warranty. A very happy customer 28 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolutely stunning piece of kit To say I was really delighted with this product would be a gross understatement. I chose to buy from John Lewis because of their excellent customer service and special offer of a three-year warranty. As a hardened Windows user, migrating to Apple was a big step for me, but I have no regrets whatsoever. The iMac is excellently made. It runs flawlessly and when you throw in the free software provided by Apple (Keynote, Numbers, Pages and OS X Mavericks) it becomes great value for money. If you are debating whether to buy an iMac, don't hesitate, just do it. You won't regret it! 21 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product Really pleased with the iMac and especially pleased with the help and advice from John Lewis customer service and techies! After talking to them I also purchased the Apple Super Drive which is also excellent. 25 February 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Flat Batteries No problem with the product. Initially I could not get any response. L E D (on mouse) lit, as per instructions, but did not flash. I resorted to online helplines but they wanted too much to resolve. I then went back to basics and replaced the batteries. Problem solved - sold with dud batteries. 08 January 2014
