Apple iMac line has been given an update in the autumn of 2012. The all-in-ones of the company from Cupertino were a lot slimmer than the aluminum unibody which included iMacs since 2009. The so-called Slim Aluminum Unibody of the last few years has also been used for the 2014 update. At the latest there are in the latest iMac thus to detect relative to the iMac in 2012 and 2013. No major changes

That does not apply to the interior. The first model that Apple releases in 2014 is in fact an entry level variant, which contains less rapid parts than previous models, but also costs less. The company from Cupertino to this model alliance from desktop processors to processors that are normally only used in ultrabooks. In contrast, the ultra-efficient appliances exchanged for a traditional hard drive. Conventional flash memory

On paper, the specs are not very impressive, but the new hardware does provide the cheapest iMac to date on. Apple has here made a saving too much or does the new iMac is still a desirable all-in-one computer experience?
