M1 iMac Review: Ultra Thin Design Choice!
Apple's M1 iMac is crazy thin. It's a polarizing design, but a great computer!

    I bought the new iMac 24-inch iMac with the M1 as soon as available to order (before it was available to see in store), and hated it enough to return it. The screen feels small, and you pay a fortune for "hard-disk" storage. What happened to "hard-disks" getting cheaper and bigger? It never occurred to me that my 10-year old MacBook Pro would have more hard-disk space than the base model 24-inch iMac. I also hate that the screen of the new iMac is so far up from the desk and cannot be adjusted. A higher resolution screen does nothing for me, but make everything smaller. (Anyone over 40 with bifocal or progressive eyeglass lenses will understand)

    Great review. For me, I like the chin. It makes the computer an object that you can use, rather than just a portal into another world.

  • Hitch

    I believe the chin is subjective, I'm a surgical resident and my "office" lol I put it in quotes because its basically a very, very small square room where I don't bring patients. but I brought my iMac and I love the chin. perfect for sticky notes when im in a rush and cant get Siri to make a new reminder or note. currently, my chin on my iMac is covered in yellow sticky notes haha but I understand the turned heads. but to each their own. my question though, should I wait the little bit for the bigger version?? my iMac is from 2015

    What’s wrong with the chin? It’s a signature look for an iMac since the G5 (2004).

    "less ports"?

  • Sean D

    Only Apple could get away with charging an extra $200 for a single GPU core, two USB ports and a gigabit ethernet port on a power brick that should have been there by default and get praised for it. But even more disturbing is them charging yet again another $200 for an upgrade from 256GB storage to 512GB storage. Only apple in 2021 can get away with charging a customer $.71 per GB of midrange NAND flash. I mean, they could have at least bumped the RAM up to 16GB, but god forbid they accidentally give customers that want to do any media work a way to get out of buying into their Pro ecosystem. And to top this fuckery all off, not ONE component is upgradeable! They could have stuck a SODIMM slot on there to give customers a way to upgrade to 16GB, 24GB or 40GB of RAM, and an M.2 NVMe slot, even just a 2242 one. This iMac is nothing more than a piece of furniture, although admittedly a very pretty, visually appealing piece of furniture. Sure, it'll do what most people want for a study or home office PC, but it's definitely NOT a media hub or workstation, you can't game on it, and absolutely intentionally not a system that creators could use. It's a household google and youtube machine, basically a non-portable M1 iPad with a nice keyboard and solid webcam. Again, I reiterate, the lengths Apple went through here to create an AIO desktop that shouldn't / cannot be used for actual work is mindboggling, and completely tone-deaf in a post-Covid world where so many are still (and will continue) working from home. The previous 27" iMac could have RAM upgraded, even the SSD (if you were savvy). If you don't need a 24" display, just get an M1 iPad, or if you need a display, might as well get an M1 Mac mini with a nice display, at least you can get one with 16GB RAM, and storage from 256GB to 2TB, configurations that expand the functionality beyond that of a $1300 INfun/Spotify/Facebook/Google machine, which people already use their iPads and iPhones as their primary devices. I guess this is just Apple trying to sell Boomers their new aesthetically pleasing home computer, and I'm sure they'll sell millions of them. At least with the M1, you get solid performance, but this is yet again Apple solidifying their position of the worlds largest contributor to global e-waste.

    This iMac’s chin is good for sticky notes to cheat on exams especially if your exam is monitored through a web camera. I strongly disagree with your statement that the screen should be a bit thicker. Thinner versions look more esthetic.

    Base model has one fan, if heat makes a difference in your work load. One fan is less performance and more noise, as it spins up more and runs fast. Just something to consider on the base model -- will this be a deal breaker, with the need to go up a grade? Perhaps so!

    Do people know iMac 2019 runs faster than M1? M1 is kind of like a smaller board imac. What's the difference between 2019 iMac and M1? 2019 is a much faster intel i7 M1. I'm not joking. I did 3d Animations. 2019 is too fast for 2021 models.
