  • MondoTV

    My personal opinion is - for a video editor at least, don't buy the M1 iMac or the HP. Wait for the new M1x models or buy an M1 Mac Mini to fill in the gaps. The 23.5" (It's not 24" - bad Apple) iMac is too small for professional video editing work. I currently have a 27" iMac with a second 27" monitor sitting beside it and often wish I had more screen real estate. YMMV

    I really like this video it shows you that Apple’s quality of computers are very high compared to the Windows PCs. Apple has computers that have better processors that are custom designed and they also use better materials. The performance is also a lot better on these M1 Macs. These videos make me want to get an M series processor in the future. Just waiting for the larger iMac to become available.

    Question i used the 8gb ram mac m1 at the apple store and when splitting windows i immediately saw a lag when sliding the resizing pane back and forth. This did not happen on the 27 inch i9 they had next to it with 32gb ram. Do you have this specific issue with the mac with 16 gig ram?

    HP: We have a computer with louder speakers, wireless charging base, and a webcam with a bigger resolution than the Imac! Apple: But how about the performance? HP: the what?

  • lazerbeam

    Sound: HP sound was harsh; the iMac was sort of mumbled. Neither one impressed. The iMac camera was better than the HP, but he HP mic had better sound. The iMac display blows away the HP. I assemble my own PCs and own several Apple computers as well. I will have to say the my M1 Macbook Air with 16Gb/ 512Gb SSD running Rosetta II can actually run several M$ apps faster than my Ryzen 7 (3700X/32Gb/w 3 1TB SSDs)! I don't overclock the Ryzen but I do have the memory XPM turned on. I don't know how Apple does it, but it works...

  • 2phil4u

    You are so biased. It is just add for Apple. If this computer would be so hood, I had buyed it. For example you say a comparable monitor cost 700, maybe, but it is worth 700? Of course not, it's to small. Only if you need just this small Form factor for whatever reason, it is great. Again if I discount 700 from the price, the price is good But then if you want 1 TB or more ram, you are at 2k And for 2k you get the 5950x plus high end graphic card. So all in all, it is just for people with money as 2. computer.

    I didn't expect M1 webcam to be that dramatically better than quite a massive HP's webcam. Actually, when after webcam comparison you switch to the studio camera, it looks and sounds worse than M1 iMac 😮

  • Saint Kenny

    What can be upgraded on the IMac Pro in terms of graphic card, ram and SSD? Thanks! HP’s are crap in the PC world. They are good for office work, and small projects. Alien Ware is king of the hill, but way overly priced. Still on my IPad Pro 2020 since ATT still hasn’t received my IPad Pro 2021. I should have just gone Apple direct and saved $200 bucks for this long of a wait. Guessing I will end up waiting another month or 2 for my IPad.

  • Saint Kenny
    Saint Kenny

    Hi. On the IMac can you use any wireless speaker you want? Even though HP uses bigger speakers, their system is so cheaply made and you can obviously tell all the short cuts they take. I normally build my own PC where you get the best price. After this video, should you at minimal be dishing out the $1300 bucks for that unit and you can upgrade the SSD with your own? Will it allow you to do that? Thanks for the video! I think the IMac just killed it!

  • Skyler Enola

    Are you sure this hp is the best AIO PC? And what is the price difference between the 2? You mentioned your imac is the more expensive one but failed to tell how much exactly yet you directly compare them as if they both cost 1299. Do a fairer comparison again with the best AIO PC of same price point.

    The iMac is much better, note the white textured background behind you, it gets lost in the HP, the camera seems to be a bit off focus? Skintones are better on the iMac. This is a no competition between the two, even the base model iMac. Life is different with a iMac.

    2 things so far: 1. Louder speakers doesn’t = better quality speakers. HP’s speakers are LOUDER. The iMac’s speakers are BETTER. 2. The iMac’s camera is far superior than the HP’s.

    What Max Tech (and every other tech reviewer) fails to mention is that you can add the full sized keyboard to the iMac for $20 USD ($30 CAD)

    P.s. never open the activity monitor or task bar during the testing... export speed or Geekbench. They uses a lot of CPU... on my intel mac or pc when I'm opens, then it load my cpu up to 30-40% and you lose the performance.

    lol the iMac with M1 knocks pretty much anything x86 has out of the water. I'd say that m1 is not only making macs better for non gaming tasks, but is also making them a steal of a deal in their own right. I don't wanna spend too much money on a computer I don't need, especially when the next generation of apple silicon is right around the corner. But honestly for the price they're selling these things, its highway robbery.

    I just bought my wife an iMac for her birthday and this video really sealed my confidence in the purchase. Even at $1949 for Trackpad, double RAM (16GB), and double SSD(512GB) price increases, it’s a great value.

  • MajorPickleSwag

    The only reason I'd buy the HP is if it were half the price and my dad's HP AIO stopped working. Plus, it would just be easier for him to continue using windows rather than a completely new OS.

    If it's overpriced new, IMAGINE WHAT IT WILL BE TO REPAIR WHEN (not if) 1 of the 4 main components (CPU, GPU, MOTHERBOARD, or RAM) goes BADDD! COMPLETELY NEW SYSTEM because they'll just swap and replace, not actually repair. If you're considering going with an M-chip based iMac, please everyone, look up Louis Rossman's "The more things change, the more things stay the same" regarding Apple's impossible-to-repair M-chip based computers. Right around 4:30 mark he really drives it home.

    I hope they improve the speakers on the larger I-Mac, and I like that the HP has an HDMI In and an HDMI out, I would love for the next I-Macs and Mac Minis to have that feature as well. The quality of the I-Mac display is much better. My HP ENVY laptop only has 12 GB of Ram and only 2 GB of Video Ram. It does have 16 GB of Octane memory on the drive, that it says is a HD but my system says it is Solid State and it would not let me fragment it. It is also 1 TB. It is 17 inch and has HDMI, 3 USB-A, 1 USB-C, an Ethernet, SD Card reader and a DVD/CD writer/reader. Comes in handy for installing my printer/scanner drivers and software. It has an 8th Generation processor, so it can run Windows 11 when it comes out. Funny, my new 12.9 I-Pad Pro with 1 TB SSD, comes with more ram than my HP Laptop. I love that you can get more ram and higher capacity SSD, more CPU & GPU cores, where as my HP only has 4 cores. No wonder I want an Apple computer. I would get the I-Mac and a docking station, for the extra ports. It would be worth it. I would rather have an Apple I-Mac than a PC. With Parallels you can run Windows 10. I don’t know about Windows 11 yet, if you need Windows at all. I have a Windows HP I can always run Windows 10 or 11 on that for Access and Publisher. (Don’t know why these applications are not included in Mac’s Office 365. Between those two computers, I would get the I-Mac, with 2TB, and 16GB of Ram. Probably in the Blue.
