Ars Technica Confirms that the $1,099 iMac Is Not a Great Deal

Send Article to a Friend

Ars Technica has benchmarked the “new” $1,099 iMac and confirmed what we initially suspected: that the money you save isn’t worth the drop in performance (see “[Apple Introduces Entry-Level iMac for $1,099][*],” 18 June 2014). In fact, for the 18 percent you save over the $1,299 iMac, you lose 50 percent of the performance, and have a machine that’s roughly equivalent in performance to a MacBook Air. However, Ars echoes what many of you told us: it’s an ideal machine for institutions that don’t need speed, but could save a fortune buying in bulk.favicon follow link
