It is safe to say that Apple is a name nearly everyone is familiar with when it comes to electronic telecommunication devices. Their reputation as a top producer precedes them, and with good reason. One of the many successful products in their list are their Apple IMac Desktop Computers.
Why opt for an iMac as opposed to the many other alternatives in the market?
Most people argue that the iMac computers are expensive yet there are as many competent alternative personal computers in the market. Well, the simplest way to resolve this would be to point out the fact that the quality of software, hardware and design of the Apple iMac is hard to find in any other single desktop computer out there.
For those saying it is cheaper, I would advise them to consider the value of an iMac at resale to the value of any other desktop computer at resale. Most desktop computers greatly depreciate in value as newer models are introduced while the value of an iMac remains high even years later. This is because of the superior quality of these desktop computers in terms of software and hardware, a value that does not deteriorate with time.
There are several more reasons why an iMac could be considered superior to other desktop computers: they are less susceptible to viruses than most other computers, they are easier to repair in the event of fails as both hardware and software originate from the same provider. In addition to that they have a simple OS upgrade process and let’s face it, few other computers can come up against it in terms of design.
If you opt against an iMac for the simple reason that you prefer Windows operating system, then consider that Windows OS can easily be run on an iMac so why not get the best of both worlds?
What are the basic features of any Apple iMac desktop computer?
The most recent iMac computers have the features mentioned below:
In display, they come with either a 21.5 0r 27 inch LED backlit display with a very high resolution of up to 4096 by 2304 for the 4K display and 1920 by 1080 for regular display. They also support a large array of colors for better picture quality.
They offer fast processing speed ranging from 2.3 to 3.4 GHz. They make use of superior dual-core and quad-core intel processors that can be boosted up to 3.8 GHz.
They have large memories as compared to most desktop computers in the market, up to 8 gigabytes RAM. They also offer extremely large storage with an astonishing 1 terabyte hard drive. This is advantageous in that users would hardly find themselves needing to expand the memory using external drives.
They have great graphics. This coupled with the tremendous display means that the iMac could easily be used in home entertainment units in lieu of a TV, although that is not to say that the display is as good as an actual television.
The iMac has audio connections for a microphone and headset with a 3.5mm jack and has speakers built into the display unit. It has a HD camera which is great, as all Apple device cameras tend to be. They support video with either one 5K or two 4K Ultra HD or two 4K. Video output is achieved over Native DisplayPort. They also come with Thunderbolt ports which allow you to hookup other monitors to the computer for multiple display.
Input devices are the Magic Keyboard which is wireless and rechargeable, the Magic Mouse and the Magic Trackpad. In terms of connectivity it offers the latest Bluetooth as well as Wi-Fi.
To seal this package is a one year warranty and ninety days of free telephone support.
What are some added features in the iMac that you won’t encounter elsewhere?
One of the things I love the most about the iMac is the design where the computer and display come as one unit which also includes built-in speakers and all connectivity ports. This is a great help in reducing the clutter of cables that you would otherwise have to deal with.
Other features are the stealth mode and El Capitan features which have made for increased internet security. As I mentioned earlier, the iMac are less susceptible to viruses than most other desktop computers and that can be directly attributed to these two features.
There is also the Handoff feature which allows you to continue what you were doing on your iMac on other Apple devices provided that all the devices are on the iCloud, signed in with the same Apple ID and on the same Wi-Fi network.
