Pros and Cons of the New iMac 27-inch


Apple’s Most Powerful Desktop Computer

This 27-inch, 5K display with integrated CPU offers the most color-rich monitor available in the market today. Because the computing power is in the display, there is no tower to worry about. The keyboard and mouse plug into the back of the monitor.

The iMac offers a significant speed bump over previous models, making it a strong alternative to Windows-based, All-in-One models. The Thunderbolt 3 ports provide 40Gbps data transfer, which is double the speed of previous iMac generations.

Below are the product specifications, pros and cons of this device, and targeted uses for it.




+ Photos and videos are expertly colored due to the P3 color gamut, which makes them much more vivid and memorable. Useful when completing editing, in a training seminar or during a product launch.

+ Display is large enough to work with documents side-by-side

+ The CPU is fast, especially in the arena of graphic applications and file transfers

+ Thunderbolt 3 allows for HDMI, DisplayPort, DVI, and external monitor connections

+ High Sierra offers built‑in encryption, crash‑safe protections, and simplified data backup

+ Has long battery life


There is no touch screen option, unlike many other Apple products

The port placement is in the back of the monitor, which can be cumbersome

The mouse is inoperable while it’s charging
