How to Choose Your All-in-One Apple iMac
The Apple iMac is an all-in-one desktop computer suitable for personal, professional, or educational use. Although it has everything required to run the computer all in one convenient package, it does not compromise on power. With a display panel measuring just 1.4 mm and some models weighing under 6 kg, it will take up very little space on your desk.What are the different Apple iMac editions?
There are three different iMacs to choose from, and these are offered by eBay at different price points with a unique combination of functionalities for different requirements. The iMac versions are:
- 21.5-inch LED display: The LED-backlit display supports millions of colours with up to 16 GB of RAM for fast processing speeds with its dual-core processor. It can store 1 TB of data in an HDD or 256 GB of data with flash storage.
- 21.5-inch 4K display: Supporting one billion colours, the 4K display shows images with vivid accuracy. Providing up to 32 GB of RAM with an incredible quad-core processor, it can store up to 1 TB of data in HDD or SSD storage.
- 27-inch 5K display: The larger screen has 5210p image quality for one billion colours with up to 64 GB of RAM and a quad-core processor. It can store up to 3 TB of data in a fusion drive or have 2 TB of SSD storage.
The Apple iMac unit consists of just the incredibly thin screen and its processing units inside, so you will need to choose which input devices you want to use. These might be:
- Magic Mouse 2: Rechargeable via a USB cable, this mouse is light and is designed to move with less resistance. It pairs with your Mac automatically via a wireless Bluetooth connection. Compatible with OS X v10.11.
- Magic Keyboard: This keyboard is built with precision, so the keys can optimise user comfort for typing. The rechargeable battery will last for up to a month between charges and is compatible with iMac models with OS X 10.11 or later.
- Magic Trackpad: Just like the trackpad on a MacBook, a Magic Trackpad gives you the familiarity of multi-touch gestures on the iMac. Featuring an edge-to-edge glass surface area, it also has a rechargeable battery.
