Review: Apple’s 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display still best all-in-one around – Apple Insider

A 27-inch 5K iMac is no longer a novelty, but 2015’s model is an upgrade bound to satisfy most Mac users — though Apple did, strangely, decide to hold back on certain key advancements.

Display

The centerpiece of the computer is of course its 5,120-by-2,880-pixel display, which like last year’s 5K iMac is almost unbelievably sharp. In many respects, Apple’s display technology hasn’t changed — images are bright and practically “pop” off the the screen, with deep blacks, high contrast, and wide viewing angles.

It’s hard to overstate the value of 5K. Aside from making images and text super-crisp, it’s possible to run multiple apps simultaneously without feeling cramped for space. Apple is still ahead of most PC makers in this respect, since other all-in-one computers typically don’t exceed Quad HD (2,560-by-1,440 pixels). For the time being, people who insist on 4K or better without a separate monitor may naturally gravitate in Apple’s direction.

There is one upgrade this year, which is support for the P3 color gamut. This is said to offer 25 percent more colors versus the standard sRGB gamut, which may be particularly important for people wanting to do professional photo, video, and illustration work. Certainly, we’ve never seen color this good on a consumer-level display.

Design

The chassis of the system is essentially unchanged from 2014. It’s still ultra-slim, only 5 millimeters thin at the edge, albeit with a large bulge at the back for components like RAM, the logic board, and internal storage. The similarities extend down to the rear-mounted ports, the large black bezels, the adjustable aluminum stand, and a push-button mechanism used to access the RAM panel.

As a rule this is a good thing, since there was nothing fundamentally wrong with last year’s design. In 2015 it’s still stylish and practical, even if side-mounted ports would make it easier to connect peripherals, and it would be nice if Apple figured out a way of improving portability or (dare we say it) internal access for repairs and upgrades.

Down-facing speakers deliver loud, crisp audio for music, games, and video, and may in fact be good enough for casual users. Audiophiles will of course want dedicated speakers or headphones, especially for the sake of bass.

Performance

We tested the $1,799 base configuration, equipped with a 3.2-gigahertz quad-core Core i5 processor based on Intel’s Skylake platform, capable of Turbo Boosting to 3.6 gigahertz. The computer also came with 8 gigabytes of RAM, a 1-terabyte, 7,200-rpm hard drive, and an AMD Radeon R9 M380 graphics card with 2 gigabytes of VRAM.

In general the system proved more than capable at handling everyday tasks, for instance letting us run Chrome, Pages, Spotify, and Slack simultaneously, with Chrome having several browser tabs open — including one running 4K video from YouTube. It was also able to handle modest games like Limbo at full speed, without hitching or dropping frames.

That being said, it’s worth spending an extra $200 to get the model with faster Fusion Drive storage and M390 graphics. People spoiled by Fusion Drives or the SSDs in recent MacBooks will otherwise find boot and app launch times slow, and the M380 just doesn’t perform well with graphically intense 3D games or productivity apps. Indeed framerates suffered a bit in The Talos Principle, which is a slow-paced puzzler — running a game like Grand Theft Auto V in Boot Camp would probably bring the system to its knees. Of course, Macs aren’t known for being gaming powerhouses.

Geekbench’s 32-bit processor tests gave the machine a single-core score of 3,569, with multi-core performance hitting 10,931 — not much better than a 2013 MacBook Pro with a 2.4-gigahertz Core i7. Blackmagic’s Disk Speed Test showed virtually equal read and write speeds meanwhile, coming in at 200.1 and 197.6 megabytes per second, respectively. That’s well below the performance of SSD and Fusion Drive options.

Flies in the ointment

If there’s a broader issue with the iMac’s engineering, it’s really that some of its elements seem outdated, or at least not future-proof. An 8-gigabyte standard allotment of RAM is beginning to feel anemic in a system this expensive, for example, and while there are four USB 3.0 ports and two Thunderbolt 2 connections, there’s no USB-C in sight. That seems strange considering how much attention Apple lavished on USB-C when it announced the 12-inch Retina MacBook.

Buyers should probably abandon the tiny and uncomfortable Magic Mouse 2 as soon as possible in favor of a third-party mouse or a Magic Trackpad 2.Unless buyers choose otherwise, all new iMacs come with Apple’s Magic Keyboard and Magic Mouse 2. Both peripherals can be recharged via Lightning cables, and the Keyboard in particular is quiet, compact, comfortable, and responsive.

Buyers should probably abandon the Mouse 2 as soon as possible, though, in favor of a third-party mouse or a Magic Trackpad 2. It’s tiny and not terribly ergonomic. As if to compound things, its Lightning port is inexplicably on the bottom, meaning that you can’t charge the device while you use it.

Conclusion

Apple’s philosophy this year can be summed up with the cliché “if isn’t broken, don’t fix it.” Skylake and better graphics hardware at least keep the iMac relevant, and people new to the Mac platform may be happy, mostly because of the incredible display. The effect might diminish if they want to run AutoCAD or the latest Call of Duty, but at that point a PC or a Mac Pro might be the better option anyway.

Our only fundamental complaint is that Apple didn’t attempt any significant leaps this year. There’s still a place for desktops in the Mac lineup, but Apple has to prove that they can be just as cutting-edge as any PC or MacBook if they want to attract shoppers. That doesn’t necessarily mean “thinner,” either.

Score: 4.5 out of 5

Pros:

  • Even better 5K display with wider color gamut
  • Handles tasks like 4K video with ease
  • Stylish and practical design
  • Decent built-in speakers

Cons:

  • Base model performance suffers from weak graphics, slow disk drive
  • Needs USB-C & more default RAM
  • Expensive compared to similarly-performing PCs
  • Magic Mouse 2 is terrible

Step by Step Instructions for this Deal with AppleCare included

    1)Make sure you’re using a browser with cookies enabled that isn’t in private mode.
    2) If you haven’t already, take a few moments to join Adorama’s free VIP customer program. (It’s painless, offers perks, & is required for special promos like these.)
    3)  Now make sure you’re logged into your Adorama VIP account.
    4)  Once logged in, select your iMac 5K + AppleCare bundle by clicking one of the pricing links above (or those in the Macs with AppleCare Price Guide) — you must use these links!
    5) When the Adorama iMac + AppleCare page loads, you’ll see a price that’s roughly $150 higher than advertised. That’s OK, add it to your cart anyway.
    6) When you’re done shopping, begin the checkout process.
    7) During checkout, apply promo code APINSIDER in the Promo Code field right after your shipping info (where it says “Do you have a gift card or promo code?”)
    8) After you apply the promo code, the total price should fall by roughly $150, increasing the total discount on the iMac and AppleCare to at least $169, which deducts the full cost of the plan (plus another $39).
    9) That’s it. Now complete the checkout. If you live outside NY & NJ Adorama will also not collect sales tax on your order.

    As always, if you have any issues, you can reach out to us at priceguides@gmail.com and we’ll try and help.
