Macintosh - Standard Desktops

iMac

The Apple iMac is suitable for users whose daily activities consist primarily of using any of the Office programs, sending/receiving e-mail, calendaring, use of the Internet for Web surfing and the like. It is also suitable for light- to medium-weight image manipulation, Web composition, video and audio editing, software coding and similar activities.

Users whose needs exceed these general parameters -- i.e. those who make heavy use of Photoshop, Mathematica, MATLAB, Final Cut Pro, and the like, or whose daily activities include intensive software coding, image manipulation, video or audio manipulation or other resource-intensive computing tasks -- should consider purchasing the Mac Pro (scroll down to view)
