    Apple's ecosystem is getting interesting. Now people have to choose whether to buy the big iPad, iPad with a keyboard, iPad with a fan, the iPad with a touch screen, or the iPad without a screen.

      @Cilpotājs last i checked colors/colours arn't gendered. im gay and my personal color pallette rarely steps out of black, red, grey, and blue.

      @Cilpotājs Black and gray are neat colors and all, but fun fact (using this example because you seem like a car guy): what are considered by many to be the most manly vehicles of all time (60s-70s American Muscle cars) are often seen in all sorts of colors that are not black or gray. Maybe you see the occasional black one, but especially not gray. Most often though, I see red, orange, yellow, maybe green, maybe even some blue ones. Hell, when the manly muscle car died off is when you see the most black or gray (or white or silver) in cars, like in the 80s.

    There are a few aspects of the design[language] of the 24-inch iMac that are perfect for its targeted audience. It comes in colors to match your decor, and the white bezel won't clash with the white wall you are facing while you use it. The chin allows each family member to adjust the angle of the display without leaving fingerprints on the screen. It has just enough power for homework and other household uses, and its price[point] is just right. A very good design!

    • Ronodin

      @Spencer Kraisler with the m1 it is more than powerful enough to last a few years for a household or an office

    • Spencer Kraisler
      Spencer Kraisler

      @Ronodin 1300$ computer is good but on the Low end imo. ofc if your goal is just to browse the internet, write, and do basic stuff, then that's fine

    According to Linus this iMac only comes in “dental office” size at the moment.

    • Pasc1331able

      @xX1NORM1Xx This is a wild guess but it also may just be because dental offices typically may not have as many computers as most other office complexes. Combined with the amount of money they make and a necesity for something they believe can run image software better and there you go. Just a guess, again

    • Ken Collins
      Ken Collins

      Yes, Apple's commercials for the 24-inch iMac show people using it in dental offices. NOT. Few people have home dental offices.

      @Kira Slith 24” is enough for average home users and students. The 21” was good for some too. 24” is totally the best ground for this iMac - meant for simple offices, home use, student use, teenagers, seniors…

    • gta4carnage

      @Kira Slith I run both windows and Mac and I get real tired of partisan children on both sides who prevent me from getting objective information or actively propagate false information. LMG are late on all M1 releases and when they do come, it’s full of pathetic cheap shots to placate people like you. I’d prefer some actual information like: why does the iMac have the exact same highly efficient processor as the MBP if it’s not bound to a battery? Why not increase the performance of it’s going to be plugged in all the time? But no, we have to wait for another video while Max Tech, Luke Miani etc did this a week ago and in the meantime there’s this video which is plain fan service.

  • robotomo

    I recently started using the 2004 cinema display that my dad got for free from somewhere. I was blown away by it's quality in both build and screen. The screen looks very realistic, almost like you're looking out a window. The build quality is impeccable too. No rattly plastics and little to no bending at all!

      @Kayla Morgan It's not exclusive to Apple that you can zone out, buy something and get something in return. All they did was make a sleek AIO computer and that's all.

    • benanderson89

      @Francis Hoang Alelienware machines are not good. Garbage Dell hardware inside and heating issues. They're also really expensive for what you get. 90% of prebuilts are shit including MSI and Asus and especially HP: you're better off getting a boutique system builder to put one together for you, like PC Specialist or Overclockers.

    • Kayla Morgan
      Kayla Morgan

      it sounds kinda silly when you put it like that, but when I bought a PC I didn't buy using a spec sheet, and when you buy most things like a TV or game console or whatever, that's not really how it works either. It made sense when there were such huge performance differences in the past, but we are getting closer to the point where for most mainstream users (especially in the home), specs really won't make a lick of difference... and that is really the audience for this computer. People buying this don't care about component numbers or even, in some cases, which OS it's running (I use both Windows 11 and OS X and they are both pretty great tbh)...so this computer is a tool, not a hobby or a passion. Without looking, what are the specs of your current large screen TV? Without looking, all I can tell you is the color, screen size/definition, the brand and maybe a few gimmicky features, which is basically identical the level of information they are pushing this iMac with. My TV is a tool to watch movies. The iMac is a tool for home computing.

    I honestly think theres a future for the ethernet in the power brick thing, I don't think i've used any device with ethernet unless it was plugged into power so it kinda just makes sense

    • ChromaFox

      It seemed neat, my two Vaio P series subnotebooks had a little VGA/Ethernet dongle that attached to the power brick, but still had their own seperate connector, and I remember another Vaio Ultrabook that had an Ethernet port to small personal WiFi dongle that attached to the power brick via a USB port. Honestly it looks like a neat solution, the actual Ethernet jack is still compatible with everything, so it's only the power brick to machine part (which is proprietary anyway) that is the proprietary connector, and you can hide the power brick and accompanying Ethernet cable under the back of the desk and keep your cords to the actual machine pretty minimal. I bet that's the main advantage, desktop towers can be hidden at the back of the desk or put on the floor, but many AIOs have problems where the cables hanging from them are pretty obvious dangling under the screen, and they look more obvious the slimmer and less obtrusive the actual AIO design is.

    • arunashamal

      @DavidMalcolm why not make the MacBook power brick a big dongle. You solve the problem of ports uglyfying the MacBook and give use the needed ports. Make the power cable that goes to outlet detachable so when you want you can use it just as a dongle

    • Rambojambo21

    Most positive Linus hosted Apple video I’ve seen in a bit. I know he’s emphasized he doesn’t *hate* Apple but still more positive than normal

    • ChromaFox

      @Cybercery That's not why he criticises Apple my dude, there are legitimate reasons people dislike Apple's business practices, Linus isn't 100% critical just for the sake of it, things like magsafe and the fit and finish are great, it's things like Apple's active hostility to repair and questionable design choices like their continued placement of the charger point on the bottom of the magic mouse that he has issues with. Apple likes to make things proprietary sometimes in cases where it really doesn't need to be, but I feel Linus actually gives them some slack on that, at least the end product is nice and the proprietary shenanigans aren't as bats*** crazy as Dell's prebuilts for example. Personally I'm all for Apple silicon iMacs, even though I'm a Windows user, the efficiency of the chips is fantastic, my biggest beef right now with Apple is them hanging on to the Lightning connector for iPhones even though they're putting Thunderbolt and USB-C on their Macbooks and iPads, it would make more logical sense and range unity to make the switch to USB-C on all iPads and iPhones while maintaining that Thunderbolt compatible port on the iPad Pro and Macbooks, less cables and adaptors to worry about too.

    • Jay Brown
      Jay Brown

      @ChromaFox I agree with you. Had I designed it the charging port would be on the front of the mouse which would allow one to use it while it's charging. Apple has always been committed to a clean design since the first Mac. It didn't even have arrow keys. Honestly, I hate "ergo" keyboards. I've been using computers since '86. My brain is wired for a flat keyboard.

    • ChromaFox

      I'm not even a Mac user but I could definitely see myself enjoying using gestures more on the Magic Trackpad than the Magic Mouse, and you can actually keep using it while you're charging it which makes more sense. I currently use a wired mouse with my PC but at least with my previous wireless mouse you could plug in the USB charger cable to the front and use it like a wired mouse for a short while until it charged, only reason Apple don't want to do that is they're so committed to that slim clean design that they don't even want a small area on the front of it to add a Lightning port, even though a little extra thickness would probably make it more ergonomic and comfortable to use.

    Can you build a pc that beats the imac for the features it offers for the price? No.

  • MrFishrr

    With what's going on with the PC GPU market at the moment even this tablet on a stick looks enticing vs my 8 y.o PC. Only if the M1 performed in all other areas as it does in video editing...

    Linus: Calls an iMac an iPad. Apple: it’s ok we know it’s confusing we like that.

    • SirAlpha

      @rdvgrd6 4 years compared to apple's 5 with no repairable. Difference Samsung you can buy every component. Also you could mod any Android phone. You are just delusional. 😎

    • rdvgrd6

      @SirAlpha 😂😂😂😂😂😂 Android better lifespan? Look at how long android supports os updates for their devices compared to Apple, and any iOS device resell value compared to any android crap

    • SirAlpha

      @rdvgrd6 Why should their be a lifespan over 15 years if one component dies it e-waste. What is green about apple? Selling less chargers but putting two diffrent charging cables for their products. Also Android phones are superior too in regards of lifespan.

    • rdvgrd6

      @SirAlpha ungreen company 😂 you know the resell value of macs? These things get sold and sold against en ever the user wants to upgrade, I don’t be surprised if each imac has over 15years of lifespan. And every Mac and iPhone for the past 10 years are highly recyclable, much more than any of the garbage the competition produces

    • SirAlpha

      @Sriram Sundar Apple Fanboys are the Problem not thr hater the iMac is Trash if the intern components became outdated. If I want a better pc I cant just buy a mac mini I need a new Monitor. Apple is really an ungreen company and it really pisses me of saying that they will be CO2 free in 2030, but they wasting more resources than any other company.

    Good review, I already have the imac M1 24 ", now I'm looking for a transport bag that protects it well and fits like a glove, for when I have to take it with me to the beach, it has to endure the trip by car well. I've been looking for a lot time and I can not find anything, it will be that it is new, I see bags for the imac of 21 "of 27" ... but nothing for the IMAC M1 24 ", could you make a video about the subject? ... and now is when you put me some video of Khabi Lame that without saying anything he takes the imac, puts it in the original box of the imac 24 "and makes that gesture with his hand ... I know but I was hoping you would recommend me a bag, the box weighs a pound more than the same IMAC.

    Actually, this is really a gigantic iPad, sans the touchscreen. Apple simply waited for the processor to be PC grade and then simply created a common framework for iPad Pros and Macs, using a common SoC (as it name implies, it's a System on a Chip). So, long story short.... the iPad didn't become a small MacBook, but rather the MacBook and iMac became a big iPad.

    To me Magsafe is weird on iMac, Magsafe on MacBook/IPhone make sense since it has a battery, iMac doesn't? If u trip and yank it off, it will turn off? Rip documents, maybe auto save feature? And also the magnet is so strong that I think a normal DC port would be weaker that it will come off easier than the iMac? I'm confused...

  • robotomo

    My opinion on apple: Late 90s - early 2010 : The best tech innovator around Mid to late 2010 : Died down and not much happened early 2020 : So far They are coming back, and strong!

      @SHREEKANTH REDDY $500 is defintely not worth it. Not on top of a $1500 machine. Its not like its a mobile device thats going to get scratched and dinged up and needs protecting


      Is $500 justifiable for that skin? (without only Damascus in mind, most of them are hating it here. I mean any skin of choice for iMac 2021) I am from India, and that seems too costly for me.

    The weird placement of magic mouse charging port is actually by design to force Apple vision about go wireless everything. Maybe.

    I know why they removed it (the apple logo i mean) because in films that always needs to be removed in order to show it. Now that doesn’t need to happen and you still know it’s a mac. Would be nice if dbrand also covers the area behind the stand.

  • Oldpigsass

    I was hoping the new iMac would have The Chin as a ledge on the back - I'm not that stuck for space - allowing a 100% front screen, plus Sony Oled tv-style Acoustic Screen Surface Audio.

    Finally a video with an Apple product that Linus didn’t shit on at every opportunity simply because it’s Apple. An actual objective neutral unboxing.
