The 2023 Apple iMac: A Review of the Unchanged, Except for the M3

The new iMac from Apple looks almost identical to the 2021 model and comes with a 24-inch screen and a new M3 processor. The M3 chip, paired with 24GB of RAM and 1TB of storage in the model tested, provides more than enough power for daily work. And Apple’s TrueTone technology adjusts the color temperature to your environment and supports the Wide P3 color gamut. However, there are some downsides to the new iMac. The base model only comes with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, which is not enough for a computer in 2023. Additionally, the power adapter does not include a gigabit ethernet port, the Magic Keyboard lacks Touch ID, the GPU only has eight cores, and it only has two Thunderbolt / USB 4 ports. Despite the downsides, the iMac is still a well-designed machine with a lovely screen that is capable of running modern games and supporting Dolby Atmos Spatial Audio for Apple Music, movies, and shows via the Apple TV app. Overall, Apple’s new iMac is a mixed bag, with some impressive features but also some aspects that leave much to be desired.
