M1 iMac Review: Ultra Thin Design Choice!
Marques Brownlee
Apple's M1 iMac is crazy thin. It's a polarizing design, but a great computer!

    Coincidentally, I painted my walls blue in my room. When I got the iMac, it matched the chin rather than the bezels.

    FYI that chin is glass, so post-it notes apparently don't stick.

    I much prefer the design of my mum's mac. The back is curved unlike most Mac's. It's like 7 years old and has a 27-inch screen. It still works well but it won't update the apps to the newer versions.

    One huge problem: The screen is way too reflective. I have the 21.5" Late 2013. It has hardly any glare compared to this new one. Big fail!!!

    I absolutely love it and I was 10 when the iMac G3 came in them colours and love the retro look and if people look at the white bezel it is also from the G3 iMac

    in one sentence: an overpriced design object with a slow gpu and imho small 24" display in 2021, where 27" is state of the art....

    The colored chin and white bezels are the best part tho 🥲🥲 I’m a life long Microsoft user but I’m gonna get this computer and switch to Apple just because I love the design of this. 😂

    The chin and the ports are things that would keep me from buying one of these Macs. I would have to use one to see if those would be a hinderance. I will wait for the next generation. Thanks for explaining everything so well!!

    Do you think it would work for 3d modelling, animation, graphic design, vfx? If not, would you recommend the iMac 27"? or, should I wait until Apple releases a new iMac? Love your videos!

    Great review. I suggest you Try using an HP filter to kill the fan noise of the airconditioning though 😉

  • sbdreamin

    I hate the idea of the brick; mine over heats every day on my Mac book pro and I have to have it hanging off my window fan to keep it from burning up. Also this monitor looks too tall for me to use. With that huge chin, there is no way I can sit ergonomically correct in front of this computer. Gonna have to look at something else.

    I actually love that they have the chin. Both visually and practically. I often have to kinda rotate the computer to access the usb ports in the back and also need some support when sticking stuff in to those ports(I change the stuff there quite often because I do photography). The chin gives you a safe place to touch the front side of hhe screen without leaving fingerprints to the glass.

    Would like to see how it performs against the 8-core 27 inch Intel iMac with the 5500xt 8gb. My guess is the 27 inch will still beat it in performance and has the advantage of adding ram. Next year I expect Apple to show no mercy with a 27 inch M1.

  • Kyaw Hein

    I like everything about iMac M1 except that it is fully dependent on the power source. In cases of a power outage, it will automatically shut off. I am worried that frequent power outages might damage the computer. What do you think?

  • Stephen Zevon

    If it didn’t have a chin which you seem so hostile to, it wouldn’t have that colour accent opportunity…it would just be another rectangle. And then all you’d complain about is making the bezel thinner.

  • Maciej Kurek

    In chin subject you don't take one I think the most important reason behind leaving the chin. That tells you, this is a computer not a monitor.

    Love this all-new series with the vibrant colours 🌈 Which can be pairing up with the new Air-Pod Pro Max with same colour tone. Magic Mouse in the same theme is really an extra adding points ! ✨ Performance & Great Screen Resolution is Everything. 👌✨ Hope to get one soon ! as for my very first iMac in Life. 🍀

      You can get a chin logo from Etsy which is colour matched to the back of the iMac, and it looks awesome!

    I really like iMac’s, they’re very user friendly for family rooms. The chin doesn’t bother me because it’s part of the aesthetic. And the white bezels are nice to help blend in with most interior designs. I get how it can be a hit or miss with some people though. I think it’s a typical Apple move in terms of design and their target market.

    I like the chin. Without it, it would just be a sheet of glass and that is it. I have way too much stuff that is just a rectangle sheet of glass.
