Our Specialist view of the refurbished Apple iMac A1311
The Apple iMac A1311 21.5 inch refurbished All in One computer has the following spec: Released in mid 2011 with a 21.5 inch widescreen IPS LED Full HD 1920 x 1080 display that looks just amazing at almost any angle.

The Good Bits:
Apple always manages to produce modern and stylish products. This is especially true in the case of this Mac that was first released in 2011! Unlike most of its Windows counterparts, Apple includes loads of connectivity options as standard. The internal wireless card means you can connect to a wireless network. No wireless network connection, no problem! A gigabit Ethernet connection means faster and more stable internet access. You’ll find loads of ports on the back within easy reach for peripherals, another monitor and for SD and MicroSD cards.
The Not So Good Bits:
Unlike similar Windows based AiO PC’s upgrading Apple iMacs isn’t quite as straightforward. The RAM isn’t the tricky bit; if you want to upgrade the hard drive it requires specialist tools to remove the screen. So it’s not impossible but it isn’t straightforward.
What’s not to love about how this iMac looks? Apple did set the benchmark for design in all in one computers. Its slim profile coupled with the slim bezel and brushed aluminium, it’s a work of art. Apple really knows how to nail the design aspect and at the same time remember to include plenty of ports and incorporate a simple but effective cable tidy in the stand. 10/10 from us.
There isn’t an environment we can’t see this pc in, whether that is in a school or college, on a reception desk or design agency or even at home as an affordable Apple iMac option.
