by birtanpublished on October 5, 2020

Apple yesterday announced the refresh of their 27-inch imac line so what comes in the box and is it any good oh it's so heavy it's so heavy let's find out what's up everyone i can't do it what's up everyone on the everyday dad and if i can figure it out you can figure it out i was actually definitely not prepared for this to show up today so we are gonna unbox this and see what comes with it is it any good what's going on with it i'm very excited so let's just let's get into it so you can see the

Specs hold on here's the specs of the version i think you can see it of the version that i got i got the 27 inch with the 3.8 core i7 8 gigabytes of ram 512 gigabytes of storage 5500 xt with 8 gigabytes of vram and everything else this is basically the top of the line base model is what i got and you can see we've had to widen up everything because this is the darn biggest thing that i've ever unboxed so oh yeah it's apple we don't even we don't even need the knife don't knock

Over the microphone okay there we go i do like that this is all in i've had an imac pro before this is not my first imac and i do appreciate that it's all in one especially this kind of packaging so let's lay it down let's try laying it down okay all right so far so good all right okay there's that and we just lost the stool everything's falling apart this is wild i've never had to do

Anything like this for an unboxing this is why you pick if you're gonna make youtube videos you pick something small to unbox you don't pick big things because big things are hard okay here we go here we go okay here's this let's put you over there let's take this last beast off come on come on we got you we got you buddy there we go okay foam is done let's put you let's not break come on we made it this long without breaking anything let's not let's make sure we

Are done with the box okay we made it this far without breaking anything let's keep that trend going we just dropped something okay all right here's the box looks really nice okay let's put you over here okay well i am ready for a nap now so what do we get in the box okay we get this designed by apple in california hooray this is the magic keyboard in the magic mouse unfortunately um with the imac pro you get the magic

Keyboard with the keypad um here for just the regular imac you do not get that you get the charging cable for lightning you get the magic keyboard and the magic mouse and something to mention and i don't think i mentioned this like i didn't emphasize this enough during the like the spec overview like which model would i buy yesterday you do get everything like so when you buy this imac you don't have to buy a single other thing you get the keyboard which i love magic

Keyboards let's check this guy out oh that i mean that's like look at how light that is this is super light the keys are very nice and crisp i'm just a very big fan of typing on apple keyboards the magic mouse does take some getting used to if you're not uh if you're not used to magic mouse it is kind of it's not that it's tough to do magic mice have a learning curve but when you get used to them um with their ability to have like all

Of the gestures of say a track pad built into your mouse this thing is crazy powerful and you can even set it up even though it doesn't look like it has a right click um you can set it up to have a right click and these all the only okay you got me on one thing with the magic mouse having to charge it notice you still charge it here on the bottom that's kind of a kind of a dumb design okay like i said we get the lightning cable what do we get in here i hope some stickers i love me some stickers

Oh we get a microfiber cloth and this is much nicer than the microfiber cloth that we got with the the razor that we unboxed the other day that's a very you don't buy a computer for cloth but when they include very nice components with that computer it makes me feel a little better we do get stickers i love stickers if i don't have stickers it's just a sad day that doesn't include stickers in it right and then we've got the imac like the start guide

All of the uh the information on it so let's check out the computer itself here is the imac 27 inch from 2020. now this is obviously it's not that big of a redesign it's not a redesign at all it just has a component update on the inside but 10th gen intel chips that's a that's a pretty nice upgrade like 10th gen is a decent spec boost and there's no more okay you ready here's the big here's the big part see this here we go here we go asmr asmr tech unboxing okay lesson is i'm not very good at asmr

Tech unboxings this is the imac hey you can also see my monitor hey everybody man this is gorgeous now i love apple just look whatever else you say about apple they have a very beautiful design language and it is it's just it's a 5k monitor that we'll turn on here in a second to see how good just how good it really is okay and one thing if you were curious this little port right here this little port right here

Is for upgradable ramps so i think we are going to be able hold on let's do it let's let's undo it you got to press this button by the power cord okay we got it we got it and yes you can upgrade your own ram can you see that like right there this is user upgradable ram all you got to do is push a button by the power cord and it pops off i know i had a question about that and i know some of you did too so yes you can and we will be upgrading the ram on this machine

Um in the future safely back on keyword safely gary let's not break it you know the second you get it off though that would make for a much better title and thumbnail i broke my brand new imac within 10 seconds of opening it i don't want to be known as that guy though nobody wants to be known as that guy okay man this is a beautiful hold on we got another thing to take off there we go this is a beautiful computer so we do get um headphone sd lots of usba two thunderbolt three ports and i did

Get the one gigabit ethernet port i did not get the 10 gigabit i do kind of wish i'd gotten the 10 gigabit we got some fans right here that should handle all of the cooling and the big apple the big apple let's set this over here turn it on and see what we got going you can't hide from me power cable apple that's sega that's sega that's not apple turn you on if you guys do not have any power we'll have to go grab my keyboard and mouse from the other computer here's here's how actually we

Can because the keyboard you know because the keyboard has a sensible plug on it we can just use the keyboard next everything works english okay united states let's connect to our internet man i haven't used one of these regular magic keyboards in a while ago i've been using the one with the keypad on it it is very nicely laid out i do kind of wish i do use the number pad from time to time so i will miss that but for the price again

I spent what 2 200 on this and i have a fully functioning setup with an i7 with a very powerful graphics card as soon as it decides to connect to the internet that is sitting right next to it i should have done an ethernet cable you live and you learn and then you unbox gigantic imacs i don't know that we're going to unbox another gigantic imac on this channel this thing was j how are we even seeing everything right now hopefully you can see hopefully you can see what's going on we do not need to set up find my device apple um i have a very hard time to

Believe that this will vanish for me now i have i lose my keys all the time i lose my phone all the time if i lose the imac the 27-inch imac okay i'm i'm in trouble and it's very nice i just i really really like the 5k display um on the imacs like this is one of the i mean how much would it cost to buy a 5k display on its own my 4k display was what like 700 just by itself and that's a low end 4k display having a 5k color accurate display is a big part of having the imac

I love these devices um i've been working on a macbook for like the last few months there's always like compromises or workarounds that you have to do man to use a uh to use a laptop to do your video stuff and this just i've missed using an imac look how crisp and clear that is can you guys see that i mean i know i know this has not been upgraded if you were to buy a last year's model imac you would get the same thing let's actually see what did we get what we were supposed to get

So we've got the 3.8 gigahertz core i7 we've got eight gigabytes of 266 megahertz ddr4 ram that's all right we will definitely be upgrading that and we've got the radeon pro 5500 xt 8 gigabytes this thing is incredible so now something that we're going to do here really quickly while we've got it i don't normally like doing specs or benchmarks but really quickly let's run cinebench r20 you'll never see me do this again if you wanted to see what you could do with

This thing just bare bones without any like upgrades or anything else with one of the base models let's just do a quick cinebench run through so you can kind of see what it's like i'm not benchmarks aren't my thing but i know a lot of people like them and since this is pretty early let's just make sure that we got it so yes intel core i7 10 700 k 8 core 16 threads amd radeon pro so let's run it and see what we get i won't make you sit through this and through the magic of video editing

Actually while it's doing this you can hear the fans are kicking up you can definitely hear that the fans are kicking on because this what it does is it maxes out your computer to see what kind of like score you could get compared to other computers yeah you hear that fan now the fans definitely kicked on when we started running cinebench okay and we got a score of 46.40 according to the scores that we've got here that is very similar to an amd ryzen 7 8 core processor it's obviously 2 000 points below

The amd ryzen threadripper which is a 16 core processor but it is here's what i want you to point out and this is the reason why i originally titled that video yesterday is the imac pro obsolete look at this it outperforms the intel xenon processors the 12 core 2.7 gigahertz and the 12 core 2.6 gigahertz by a substantial margin again these are general benchmarks i don't i haven't actually tested this myself but that's a pretty decent score so this has been the unboxing initial

Impressions initial impressions are it's a perfectly usable machine if you need a machine now and you don't want to wait for like the redesign or the apple silicon this will get you absolutely the performance you need for all sorts of productivity tasks for all sorts of everything this is a very complete all-in-one system that actually is a pretty good value and it's very powerful as you can see right there but what are some things that you would like to see leave a comment

Below and we will make some more content on the imac 27 inch because we have to make the content now because i don't want to move it from this table because of how heavy it is and if you were looking at this you're like gary okay it's great but it's a little too big let me tell you something about the macbook pro 16 and how it is 16 months later and you can find that by clicking right here click click click click click click click it's a great video

By the way thanks for watching
