Apple iMac M1 Review

This review is part of techloto’s working-from-home series, where we’ve covered the best mouse, ideal microphones, and other tools to make working from home more comfortable. Today, we’re looking at the Apple iMac M1 to see if it’s the perfect work-from-home companion.


The first thing you’ll notice about the iMac M1 is its design. Apple has come a long way from the 2006 Apple HD display: a massive 30-inch screen that took up too much space and weighed a ton. This iMac is light and almost paper-thin, making it a perfect fit for any desk. Its design would appeal to students looking for a computer to put in their dorm room or anyone with limited space at home. We appreciate Apple adding a splash of colour to their design, which is not strongly saturated, giving tones that can fit into any space. The variety of colours allows users to choose the colour they prefer.


When it comes to handling applications, the iMac M1 excels. It’s impressive how smoothly it runs Teams and Zoom, even in long meetings with many participants. The fan is virtually silent, and the M1 chip allows the applications to function without issues. If you’re someone who has long meetings and video calls, this is the perfect computer for you, and you’ll see the value of the M1 chip.


Another impressive aspect is the camera. The iMac M1 camera is equipped with Facetime technology, and it’s a game-changer. The camera resolution is not the most important thing, but how it handles contrast sets it apart. After using a Canon camera as a webcam, the Facetime camera on the iMac handles contrast much better.

Keyboard and Mouse

The keyboard and mouse are also excellent. The keyboard is comfortable to type on, and the mouse is smooth and easy to use. These are essential components for a work-from-home setup, and the iMac M1 delivers in this area.


The available connections are also impressive. It has a Thunderbolt port, an SDXC card slot, and a headphone jack, among others. These connections allow for seamless integration with other devices, making transferring files and using accessories easier.

Screen Size

A challenging aspect of the iMac M1 is the screen size. If you’re someone who edits videos, audio, or designs, the screen size probably won’t be big enough. A larger screen is usually more productive for creative workflow.


The iMac M1 is an excellent work-from-home companion. Its design, performance, camera, keyboard and mouse, and available connections make it a great choice for anyone who needs a computer to work from home. Although the screen size may not be ideal for everyone, it is still an excellent choice for most people. The Apple iMac M1 is the perfect blend of functionality and design, and we’d highly recommend it.
