IMG Reviews the Flat-Panel iMac
11:39 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games has posted a comprehensive review of the hot new flat-panel Apple iMac. Written by IMG's Richard Halls, the review concentrates on the new iMac from a gamer's perspective:

The fact that the iMac now boasts a fast G4 processor (an unexpected bonus which previously was reserved solely for Apple's professional range) also makes the new iMac an interesting machine for Mac users who want to play games. The earlier G3 iMac, for all its benefits, could never really compete with the more expensive G4 Power Macs for game performance; and yet, the Power Mac price range was too expensive for the sorts of casual consumer users who would be likely to want to play a few games on their machines. Many of these kinds of users may even have succumbed to the temptation to buy PCs instead. So putting a G4 in the iMac was a shrewd move for Apple: its resulting new machine addresses the needs of consumers whilst offering them the kind of performance required to play the latest games without having to spend a fortune on a professional-level Power Mac.
If you've been looking to buy one of the new iMacs, be sure to check out the rest of the review.
