Apple 21.5" iMac 1.6GHz Intel Dual-Core i5 Desktop Computer - MK142LL/A

Features:

  • More than just a display, it's a vision.
    Accuracy. Brightness. Clarity. Regardless of how you measure the quality of a display, Retina is in a class by itself. The pixel density is so high that you won't detect a single one while using iMac. Text is so sharp, you'll feel like you're reading email and documents on a printed page. And with a new, wider color gamut, the Retina display is able to deliver even more available colors — 25 percent more. So every photo and video you see appears even more true to life
  • Innovation from edge to cutting edge.
    An incredible amount of engineering was required to bring the Retina display to the iMac family. Witness a design that's just 5 mm at its edge — yet entirely capable of making everything around you fade into the distance. This ensures that nothing gets between you and your favorite content. Seamless and beautiful, iMac with Retina display is an elegant addition to your workspace, representing a depth of technology at the height of design
  • Storage that's lightning fast. And whip smart.
    Storage is about space. But it's also about speed and performance. A Fusion Drive gives you the best of both worlds. This innovative storage technology intelligently combines speedy flash storage with a high-capacity hard drive. Your frequently used apps, documents, and photos stay on the faster flash storage, while infrequently used items move to the hard drive. And as the system learns how you work, you'll experience faster application launching and quicker file access. Fusion Drive can be configured with up to 3TB of storage. But for those who want the ultimate performance, there's an all-flash option that's now up to 2.5 times faster than the previous version
  • Built for speed. And everything else.
    Faster and more powerful than ever, the 27-inch iMac is equipped with a sixth-generation Intel Core processor and the latest AMD high-performance graphics. And the 21.5-inch iMac features a fifth-generation Intel Core processor and enhanced Intel Iris Pro Graphics. Both deliver stirring visual effects with maximum impact — at maximum speed
  • Fast connections for high performance.
    iMac is astonishingly thin. But it's jam-packed with advanced technology. Two Thunderbolt 2 ports come standard on all iMac models and deliver blazing-fast data transfer for external drives and cameras. Four USB 3 ports give you plenty of options for connecting peripherals, including your printer, video devices, and more. And with ultrafast three-stream Wi‑Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology, you're instantly connected to all your favorite content
  • The world's most advanced desktop operating system.
    OS X is what makes a Mac a Mac. Not only is it designed to be intuitive and easy to use, but it's also engineered to take full advantage of the Retina display, so you'll see everything on your desktop with stunning clarity. It features an incredible collection of apps you'll use — and love — every day. And it's designed to enable your Mac and iOS devices to work together in amazing ways
  • Our best built-in apps. The best they've ever looked.
    Every new Mac comes with Photos, iMovie, GarageBand, Pages, Numbers, and Keynote. So you can be creative right from the start. You also get great apps for email, surfing the web, sending texts, and making FaceTime calls — there's even an app for finding new apps
  • Everything you love on your iMac. On all your devices.
    iCloud stores your content and lets you access your music, photos, calendars, contacts, and more from whatever device you're using. And with iCloud Drive, you can safely store all your presentations, spreadsheets, PDFs, images, and any other kind of document in iCloud — and access them from your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, or PC

It has full-size function keys and a lower profile that increases control and comfort. And it pairs immediately with your iMac right out of the box
    • Apple Magic Mouse 2
      The new design of Apple Magic Mouse 2 lets it glide more smoothly across your desk. And since it supports Multi-Touch, you can use simple gestures on its surface to do things such as swipe between web pages and scroll through documents. So if you prefer to use a wireless mouse but want some of the benefits of Multi-Touch, Apple Magic Mouse 2 is a great choice
    • Apple Magic Trackpad 2
      If you prefer using a trackpad, Apple Magic Trackpad 2 gives you the full range of Multi-Touch gestures and introduces Force Touch to the desktop. Sensors underneath the trackpad surface detect subtle differences in the amount of pressure you apply, bringing more functionality to your fingertips and enabling a deeper connection to your content. The new design also features a lower profile, making it even more comfortable to use

      Comments about Apple 21.5" iMac 1.6GHz Intel Dual-Core i5 Desktop Computer:

      I won't bore you with the technical specs because you can just read those for yourself in the description above. I will tell you, however, that in my humble opinion, this is the absolute best desktop computer you can get in this price range, and it is exceptionally unique in that it is this cheap because most other Mac desktops cost hundreds, if not thousands more than this one. It is an all-in-one, meaning no extra hard drives required. It is literally a plug-in and turn-on system. The keyboard and mouse are wireless, but they also need to be charged from time-to-time, so keep that in mind.

      Now my two big complaints--and maybe I'm just a big whiner here--is that the keyboard is rather small compared to most keyboards, and there are no risers on the front end. This makes it a bit uncomfortable to type on after a awhile. The other complaint I have is that the charging port on the mouse is on the underbelly, making the mouse inoperable when plugged in to charge. I highly recommend a cheap plug-in for your keyboard, or if you prefer a wireless keyboard with easy access to battery replacement that is fine too. I recommend the same for a second mouse. You may also want to buy an Apple external disc player as well if you want to listen to CDs, or download music from your CD collection to iTunes, or watch DVDs. If you don't like Microsoft Office software, then I recommend LibreOffice or OpenOffice. Pages comes with the computer, but you may need other Office software to compliment your needs. Aside from all of that, this is a perfect desktop that is relatively inexpensive. And Abt, in my opinion, is the best place to get your Mac products from. Very helpful, and quick in responding to messages.

      Service and delivery comments:

      I received the computer quickly. Abt's website was easy to navigate through, and I am very happy I made my purchase through this company.
