Should Apple offer a 27-inch iMac with a silicone chip?

Apple has tapped into the keyword “Peek Performance” to bury the 27-inch iMac, a model highly prized by professionals and individuals who need power. Back in the days of Intel processors, this computer provided one of the best blasts for those who wanted a Mac that would work under the hood without losing their budget. The alternatives were more expensive: you either had to invest in a well-equipped Mac mini and buy the rest of the accessories (keyboard, mouse, screen, speakers), or resort to a well-powered MacBook Pro. Prices can then greatly exceed iMac prices as long as there is ample storage or RAM needs.

The 27-inch iMac also had an impressive 5K panel (5120 x 2880), which opened in 2014 and is very practical for displaying a large workspace while limiting the size. This big silent bike is for sale with all necessary accessories (keyboards/mouse), integrating speaker and webcam, as well as allowing free access to RAM. Thanks to Boot Camp, it was possible to install Windows and use it as a computer more than enough to play a little or use programs that are not available on macOS.

Apple Silicon: Where did the 27-inch iMac go?

On the desktop side, the disappearance of the 27-inch iMac leaves a hole in Apple’s catalog. Either we’ll stay under €2,000 with the M1 chip (iMac 24″, Mac mini), or we’ll go over €4,000 straight for a Mac studio with a 5K external display. In between, and there are many who dream of a 27-inch iMac “Pro” screen to find an all-in-one bike with enough power.

We imagine Apple has an alternative in the pipeline. Some rumors conjure up the iMac Pro with a miniLED panel, others are a simple XL version of the 24-inch iMac with a bit more box. As for the release, the sounds of the bells are different: in the summer according to Ross Young, next year for Ming-Chi Kuo. In the meantime, Apple doesn’t seem to be in any rush to release this new model, and has even confirmed that the 27-inch iMac has reached “the end of its life” in Ars Technica. In terms of good value for money, going back seems hard: the Studio Display is priced at €1,749, or €250 less than the entry-level 27-inch iMac recently removed from the catalog.
