Apple has introduced what may be the penultimate 27-in. iMac configuration powered by an Intel processor. But with Apple already talkig up plans to transition to its own silicon soon, does the iMac remain a smart buy for your business?
The Apple Silicon transition thing
Enterprise purchasers shouldn’t be put off that Apple intends to migrate its Macs to Apple Silicon because, for now at least, they know what they are getting with Intel-based kit – and have been promised support for Macs using processors for “years to come.” While that’s a slightly opaque commitment, it should cover standard enterprise Mac usage cycles.
In other words, counter-intuitive as it may sound to Mac users focused on the new, bright and the shiny, these iMacs may make a better investment than the first-generation Apple Silicon Macs, because you know what you’re getting. And existing software and services should perform fine on these new Macs for years.
