Apple IMac MB418LL/A 24-inch Desktop Review – Pros and Cons
Apple has been making gorgeous all-in-one desktops for many years now. They have also been touted as one of the best all-in-one PCs in the market. In this article, we are going to take a closer look at the Apple iMac MB418LL/A 24-inch desktop and what is has got to offer.
Cons: At the time of writing, the Apple iMac MB418LL/A 24-inch desktop costs around $1400 each. This model has an Intel Core 2 Duo processor (2.66Ghz), 4GB of RAM and a 650GB hard drive. For a similar price, you can get 8GB of RAM and a 2TB hard drive (on the HP Pavilion Elite M9600T). But then again, all-in-one PCs are known to be more expensive.
To date, this is my third iMac and I can’t help but to notice that its viewing angle is a little narrower than my older iMac desktops. The glossy screen is really stylish but easily reflects any lights in the background. Although many improvements have been made to the new Apple iMac MB418LL/A 24-inch desktop, there just aren’t many interesting hardware features on this model compared to other regular Window-based desktops.
Pros:The Apple iMac MB418LL/A 24-inch desktop is one of the most affordable all-in-one desktops in the market. It is a real bargain to get a 24″ screen at this price. Among Apple computers, this model is one of the best bargains.
Thanks to its powerful graphics chip (NVIDIA GeForce 9400), it was a delight to play games and watch movies on the Apple iMac MB418LL/A 24-inch desktop. The color dynamic range was good and the blacks were pretty deep.
The design of this model is worth mentioning. It has a very small footprint, taking up very little space on your desk. The ports are neatly lined up behind the screen and the overall design is very stylish. Like all Apple computers, the multi-tasking speed on the Apple iMac MB418LL/A 24-inch desktop is top notch.
