The iMac 2021 (24-inch) is one of the best all-in-one computers on the market. If you're not one for a MacBook, the iMac is the computer to get — we rated it as the best all-in-one for families.

The iMac 2021 offers incredible performance thanks to its M1 chip. It races through everyday tasks like browsing and streaming, and rendering video also ran at a nice clip. We will note that it's not quite as fast as the new MacBook Pro M2, but if you're not looking to make a career out of editing video, the difference won't bother you.

The iMac 2021 also has a beautiful display. With a 4.5K resolution and great viewing angles, the iMac could become your new favorite device for watching movies. The speakers also provide very rich audio with strong bass.

Making a lot of video calls? This iMac has a 1080p webcam, which will keep you looking sharp. The three mics built into the device will also isolate your voice to carry it across clearly, even if you're in a noisy apartment.

Our main complaints with the 2021 iMac are its lack of vertical height adjustment and small number of ports. Wireless accessories will be your best friend, so it's good that the included Magic Mouse and Magic Keyboard are both wireless.
