Apple Desktop Computers

While Mac laptops have dominated the news cycle, Apple desktop computers are far from missing in action. The company makes three main lines of desktops: the Apple iMac, the Mac Pro and the Mac Mini. All three meet the needs of millions of users the world over. They arent the sexiest Apple products out there, but many people find them to be indispensable workhorses.

iMac

The iMac has become the gold standard for Apple desktops, and with good reason. This sleek all-in-one design puts a large screen front and centre, with all the hardware hidden behind it. Apple uses primarily laptop parts in the iMac, enabling its small footprint and excellent thermal characteristics. Available in 21.5 and 27-inch models, its equally well suited for home and business users. Among other things its the best desktop Mac for gaming. Depending on model, it can feature anywhere from 8 GB to 32 GB of RAM and a terabyte of storage.

Mac Mini

Rightly earning the name "baby Mac," the Mac Mini is the smallest and least exy desktop in Apples line. Shipping without a display or other peripherals, it gives the Mac experience to the widest number of users. It also makes a great home theatre PC, as its already compatible with the Apple remote. This is the perfect choice for someone who wants to put their Mac away in the corner and forget about it.

Pro Desktops

Apple makes two pro desktop computers, the Mac Pro, and the iMac Pro. Shaped rather like a rubbish bin, the Mac Pro is an extremely powerful computer for the professional market, but it hasnt seen updates in years. The iMac Pro follows the popular iMac form factor but includes professional levels of RAM and storage as well as support for up to eighteen-core processors. Its very exy, but the best-performing Mac you can buy.

Choices

Choosing the right Mac desktop is a matter of determining your priorities. For many users the answer is simple: an iMac. For others, the various Pro models may be perfect, or perhaps a Mac Mini. There is no one answer for everyone.
