Cons

no HDMI output (stuck with the relitively unused DisplayPort)

9 agree

no Blu-ray optical drive options

7 agree

An extra USB and firewire port on the side of the computer would make life a lot easier. Instead of moving the computer to plug in anything.

4 agree

high price for the majority of consumers

3 agree

all-in-one design makes repair, upgrade and using parts for future builds difficult or impossible

3 agree

limited performance due to its lower powered parts demanded by its small volume, mobile graphics chips and processors

3 agree

expensive component upgrades

The Apple iMac is an all-in-one desktop with a sleek design and an impressive array of features. As Apple's flagship product, the Apple iMac comes with a magnificent viewing experience. The screen, 27 inches wide and LED backlit, provides a crisp, clear viewing that has a 178 degree viewing range. The 16:9 widescreen display, 2,560 x 1,440 resolution, and frameless side-ends maximize the viewing experience. The Apple iMac, with Core 2 Duo processors running at 3.06GHz has bested its competitiors in multitasking tests. In addition, the Apple iMac has room for four memory module slots, which not only means that there's now a 16GB RAM limit, but that inexpensive 2GB SODIMMs can be used for an 8GB configuration. Drawbacks to this impressive model include a lack of HDMI ports and no Blu-ray drive, something that all Apple products lack. However, this product certainly trumps over other all-in-one desktops both in design and performance.

Don't be stupid. A Mini Display Port to DVI, or HDMI, or DB-15 adapter is only $19 each, so it does have HDMI out for another 20 bucks.

HDMI generally includes audio though
