Apple iMac 21.5-inch (2009)
Released October, 2009
The Pros:Easy to use, even for PC owners who have never used a Mac. Windows runs dependably and fast on the system. General operation is very fast, doesn't slow down with multiple applications.
The Cons:Keyboard is smaller than it should be, lacks numeric keypad. Mirror-like screen unsuitable for sunny rooms. Unable to eject a DVD without waiting for the system to boot all the way up.
The Apple iMac is an all-in-one desktop with a sleek design and an impressive array of features. As Apple's flagship product, the Apple iMac comes with a magnificent viewing experience. The screen, 21.5 inches wide and LED backlit, provides a crisp, clear viewing that has a 178 degree viewing range.

The 16:9 widescreen display, 2,560 x 1,440 resolution, and frameless side-ends maximize the viewing experience. The Apple iMac, with Core 2 Duo processors running at 3.06GHz has bested its competitiors in multitasking tests. In addition, the Apple iMac has room for four memory module slots, which not only means that there's now a 16GB RAM limit, but that inexpensive 2GB SODIMMs can be used for an 8GB configuration. Drawbacks to this impressive model include a lack of HDMI ports and no Blu-ray drive, something that all Apple products lack. However, this product certainly trumps over other all-in-one desktops both in design and performance.
