The iMac is in many ways the perfect Apple Mac, finding its way into both homes and businesses, in part because of the large screen and compact desktop footprint.
However, because of their compact construction, the are tricky to modify and repair. While upgrading memory is fairly straightforward, pretty much everything else requires deconstructing the unit. Happily, we’re very good at that – so whether your iMac is malfunctioning or you need to upgrade storage with, perhaps, a fusion drive system, we’re here to help.
The Apple iMac made its debut in August 1998, incorporating a CRT display within a translucent plastic casing, available in a number of colours. Over the years the iMac went through a number of revisions and the form we’re now familiar with dates back to 2004, when a flat screen on a simple tilting base was introduced, although the casing was constructed from white plastic.
The all-aluminium cased iMac dates back to 2007, with 20″ and 24″ versions available. Almost every year since, Apple have launched new variants of the iMac, with new M1 chip versions expected in the first half of 2022.
