We just got the 27-inch version of Apple's new, slimmer iMac into PC Labs. As usual, the new iMac has a new set of packaging, which is functional and sets the system apart on the store shelves. The new iMac box is tapered, minimizing the amount of cardboard you'll be schlepping around after your purchase. The top is slimmer than the bottom, so the packaging subliminally lets you know that the new iMac is thinner than its predecessor.
The iMac packaging shows a full color picture of the iMac in front of a white background, keeping with Apple packaging conventions of the past. We found that the system was securely immobilized in the packaging with a few key pieces of Styrofoam, which were easily removed from the iMac itself. You should have no problem rearranging the packaging back into the box, so you can keep it in your collection, or hold it in storage just in case you need to return the iMac to Apple for repair at some future point.
The eighth-generation iMacs have the same silver and glass design as the previous two generations, but now they sport a much slimmer profile since Apple has dropped the optical drive for iMacs. The display measures an incredibly thin 5mm at the edges, though the center of the back panel still bulges out to accommodate the stand, cooling, and the power connector.
We got the 27-inch iMac with Apple's Fusion Drive, which Apple promises will perform better than a system with a simpler, spinning hard drive. Though bulky, the system was easy to move around our labs bench. Keep the included microfiber cloth handy: the screen instantly picks up fingerprints when you touch it. At first glance, the new 27-inch iMac should take up the same amount of desk space as the last version, so it will be a drop-in replacement for many users.
We'll be running the new iMac through our usual set of strenuous benchmark and hands-on tests, so stay tuned for a full review on PCMag.com in the coming days.
