AudioPaal's Apple iMac Mini Review

I've owned a Apple iMac 21.5 for a month now, and thought I'd write a few words about this fantastic machine!



   * 3,06 GHz Core 2 Duo Desktop Processor
   * 8GB PC3-8500 DDR3 Memory
   * 500GB 7200rpm SATA Hard Drive
   * 8x DVD+/-RW Dual Layer Burner
   * 21.5" WUXGA (1920x1080) LED Backlit Display
   * ATI Radeon HD 4670-graphics card with 256 MB memory.
   * HDA Audio With 17W Stereo Speakers
   * Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11a/g/n Wireless, Bluetooth
   * Four USB 2.0, FireWire 800, Mini DisplayPort, Webcam, SD Card Slot
   * 20.8" x 17.8" x 7.4"
   * Mac OS X Snow Leopard, iLife

This thing is fast! It works seamlessly with everything I throw at it. Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, Steinberg Cubase 5 Studio, Apple Logic 9 etc. And usually more than one application open at the same time.

The 8GB of memory helps a lot here, and the graphics card works wonders too. I know how to "crank" a computer, and as my former windows-based recording/studio computer would cry and weep when I opened my biggest projects, this baby roars :D

Excellent High Color Display with very good resolution (Full HD), and LED backlighting. It's the best screen I have ever had on a computer, it's even better than my TV :lol:

The performance of this all-in-one computer is very good and I haven't had a single problem yet. I have been working/studying with Mac computers on and off the last 10 years, and I don't believe I'll have to many problems to be honest :)


   * Excellent High Color Display
   * Strong Performance For All-In-One Desktop
   * Improved Magic Mouse
   * Beautiful looks
   * Great Aluminum Mini-Keyboard


   * Glass Display Creates Some of Reflections
   * All Peripheral Ports On Back Of Panel Which Can Be Inconvenient
   * Keyboard Doesn't Include Numeric Keypad

Fully recommended for Professional use, Home use, Music Production, Design and as a good looking furniture user posted image
