2023 is truly a year of wonder and exciting updates – at Apple’s recent ‘Scary Fast’ event, the world got to see the all-new, all-on-one iMac 2023 for the first time. As a current user of the 2021 iMac for all things work and leisure, I was pretty psyched to try out the new iMac that’s supercharged with the M3 chip. Time for first looks!
The new iMac sports the same look and feel as the 2021 iMac, and comes in 7 vibrant and gorgeous colours – Silver, Blue, Purple, Pink, Orange, Yellow and Green. The colour-matched accessories is to die for, and its plug-and-play nature makes it effortless to set up.
The 24″ iMac weighs less than 5KG and its exterior is only 11.5mm thin – making this a sleek addition to any workspace set up. I must say, the silver is growing on me.
The colour-matched accessories is to die for, and its plug-and-play nature makes it effortless to set up. The Magic Keyboard with Touch ID makes logging in and purchases on the iMac that much more convenient. The Magic Mouse comes with colour-matched aluminium sides and surfaces, in perfect harmony with your iMac. The USB-C to Lightning Cable with colour-matched woven cable enables you to charge and pair your accessories seamlessly with the iMac for charging and syncing.
The Magic Keyboard with Touch ID is available with the S$2,199 and S$2,499 models.
With 2 Thunderbolt / USB 4 ports (with the thunderbolt logo on top of the ports), you can easily transfer data up to 40Gb/s from external drives and cameras, with sufficient bandwidth for video and display connectivity. You can also connect up to one 6K display such as the Pro Display XDR.
With the S$2,199 and S$2,499 models, the 2 additional USB 3 ports are equipped to handle up to 10Gb/s data transfer, giving you ample options for connecting your iPhone, flash drives, printer, and more.
The iMac comes with an external power adapter that allows you to snap on your 2-meter woven cable with its magnetic connector, and you can hide it behind your desk (or any kind of set up) without it cluttering up your workspace.
Should you require Ethernet, the power adapter comes with the Ethernet port with the S$2,199 and S$2,499 models and is available as an option on the S$1,899 model.
