You cannot compare processors by clock speed, too many other factors

that's why I asked how do these run (_;)

It'll run fine for everything except more intensive stuff like gaming, video editing, etc.

Voted hot as it's a good office desktop, but it's limited longer term as you can't upgrade the RAM (27" version you can) and the gfx card is basic.
Won't John Lewis price match?
Apparently John Lewis will not price match It says that Costco is an online retailer only .. weird.
And they don't match the stores as you have to pay to join.
Can anyone order this or a business only?

Ive ordered from this site a few times and im not a member.
Is it come with warranty?
Wow great price I am very tempted, need to replace an ancient Dell Vostro, but don't know if I'd be better off buying a MacBook Pro?

If people will pay it why not charge it I guess...

Always cracks me up how most of my "anti capitalist" mates use these haha.

Yeah I'm not blaming apple for anything they have a great business plan but you can get a much more powerful PC for less.

For example faster CPU, faster ram, better GPU (still not great though), Bigger HDD, free game and £100 less

Costco also have the version with the quad-core processor but it's £999.99
Not such a good deal

Would this run Final Cut Pro?
New ones due this year, possibly March.

Won't be this price though will they?
Just a reminder that you need to be a Costco member for this price. You can avoid the full membership cost (£25 + VAT annually) if you become an online subscriber (£15 per year inc VAT) or can pay an additional 5%+ VAT surcharge.

If will be my decision this IMac or Macbook pro 13.3
As they nearly same price range 799 or 899
I will be getting macbook pro 13.3 and buy external monitor if need bigger screen

They used to do a day pass for £1? No idea if they still do.....

Apple do not recommend these machines for Logic Pro or Final Cut Pro, as the integrated graphics card is not suitable for transcoding video (yes, Final Cut Pro uses the graphics card processor not the CPU).

They are more than capable of handling photo editing on Adobe Creative Cloud, however there's a major drawback to the 2015 21.5" iMacs.

No memory upgrades (soldered) - Default 8GB configuration.
No hard disk upgrades (unless you want to take a hair dryer and crack open the front bezel)

Also the 1TB non-Fusion drive is going to be incredibly slow.

Voted hot for what it it is, but it's not a video workhorse. Sorry.

Thank you for the info really is a massive help
There is no positive correlation between buying an iMac and a "good deal"
Not as hot as you think. It's only £35 off the normal retail.

Fairly slow processor and I can't seem to find any info on how easy it is to fit an SSD or upgrade the memory on to this model and whether it voids your warranty.

An SSD really transforms the feel on any desktop or laptop and personally I wouldn't even consider any machine which I couldn't easily upgrade with one, especially a Mac as it's so easy to reinstall OSX after changing the drive (it automatically boots, downloads and installs the OS when you boot with a drive without it installed)

I wouldn't leap at this model to be honest and suspect people are just seeing iMac relatively cheap (for Apples over inflated prices) and voting hot without delving into this.

"Apple 21.5-inch iMac review (late 2015) - still the all-in-one standard
Ever-so-slightly under-powered and expensive to upgrade, but the smaller 2015 iMac is still a great all-in-one"

Macbook and external screen without a doubt IMO.
It gives you so much more flexibility and can be upgraded with SSD and memory memory.
I wouldn't buy this for reasons in my previous (and others) posts.
The CPU is an absolute joke in this, http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Core+i5-5250U+%40+1.60GHz

That might have been acceptable in 2008.

Depends on what you're really looking for in a PC though - I have a Mac Pro but it spends almost all it's time running Windows. Can't stand OSX and I only use it when I have to. A Windows-based all-in-one would make more sense than this for most people who aren't tied into Apple as you get more hardware for your money.
