The review praises its looks, power and software bundle. It even likes the computer’s packaging, which makes you feel as if you’re opening up something very special.
“The new iMac is fast, the screen is brilliant, and the entire software/hardware bundle is neatly tied together in a package that makes using a computer downright enjoyable,” the review says. “I’ve been using computers for longer than I’d care to admit, and this is absolutely the best machine I’ve ever used. Sure, the dual processor G4 at work is faster, and the Pentium IV Sony box we have at work has a higher MHz rating, but when it comes right down to it, computers are simply tools for enabling people to do things. By that measure, Apple has succeeded beyond anything else you can buy. “
