The Apple iMac family is a line of desktop computers known for their unique all-in-one design. Originally introduced in 1998 by Apple Inc, the iMac has consistently evolved through seven individual body designs before reaching the latest aluminum unibody form. The iMac has become Apple’s primary consumer computing option and is comfortably used in both home and work environments. iMacs come packaged with essential Apple Accessories that include the Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse, or Magic Trackpad. In 2017, Apple released a more powerful workstation quality iMac, the iMac Pro, that may eventually become their top computing option replacing the Mac Pro.
