Apple doesn’t love us enough to send us devices for review, nor can we afford to purchase one of every new Mac that hits the market. Fortunately, our sister site TechCrunch was able to take a close look at the 2013 iMac and did a short-but-sweet review of the top features of Apple’s all-in-one desktop machine.

Darrell Etherington notes that the 2013 model still uses last year’s slimmer design, and that the 27-inch iMac is “no longer an absolute horror to move and reposition.” He loves the Fusion Drive’s ability to speed up boot times while still providing huge amounts of storage, but it’s the performance of the new iMac — outfitted with the 3.5 GHz Intel Core i7 “Haswell” CPU and Nvidia GeForce GTX 780M — that made him note that “this iMac isn’t one that will back down to a gaming challenge.”

The bottom line? “Apple still definitely makes the best all-in-one available.”
