Apple iMac 24″ 2021 Review: The Everyday iMac?

Updated: Aug 21, 2021

Apple’s newly unveiled iMacs are a major throwback to the iMac G3, with six colour options in addition to the standard silver, but they also feature the powerful new M1 chip, a 4.5K Retina display, an upgraded 1080p webcam and more. So, is this the iMac for you? Yes, but only if you’re a typical consumer and not a prosumer.

Let’s start with the design. The iMac is absolutely gorgeous, and we got our hands on the 8-core CPU / 8-core GPU model in blue with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage, which has a deep, dark metallic blue on the back and a lighter, pastel blue on the front chin of the display. The aluminium stand is also a light shade of blue, and all in all, it looks stunning. Apple’s products always look incredibly refined, and the iMac is no exception.
