Debating a new iMac? We may have the perfect excuse to buy one

If you haven’t seen the new iMac, you need to run, not walk, to your closest retailer or hop online immediately. Not only are they the best that Apple has to offer in terms of speed, capacity, retina display, and brightness, but they also come in seven stunning colors that will make your office pop.

If you are an Apple user, you’ll never buy another manufacturer again. The quality, support, updates, and capabilities are second to none. The 24-inch screen can bring everything on your screen to life, from that work presentation to your latest Netflix binge. If you ever needed an excuse to upgrade your computer, this is a pretty good one.

Heavenly hues

The iMac comes in seven screen colors with coordinating stands. Make your home office come alive with pink, yellow, green, orange, purple, or blue hues, and these bright, vibrant colors are sure to cheer up any space you put them in. The power connector (which connects via a magnet) also comes in matching colors, or you can pick another color to mix and match. If you’re more of a traditionalist, don’t worry; this set is still available in classic silver.

Speaking of color, the iMac also boasts a P3 wide color gamut, which means whatever is on the screen comes to you in over a billion colors and 500 nits of brightness. Its in-built technology “automatically adjusts the color temperature of your display to the ambient light of your environment” so your screen will adapt to the brightness of your outdoor office as well as the dim glow of the study.


Say goodbye to clunky monitors taking up precious space on your desk. The iMac is only 11.5mm thick, so you don’t need a big space to accommodate it. Thanks to the M1 chip, this device delivers a powerful performance as it “integrates the processor, graphics, memory, and more onto a single chip,” according to Apple’s description. The small size of the chip allows the computer to be so thin and light — it weighs less than ten pounds, so you can easily move it from your home office to the bedroom, or wherever else you might need it.


If all that isn’t enough, the newest iMac has a stellar camera system. With better resolution, more light, and improved image quality, you’ll be more than ready for your next Zoom call or FaceTime with family and friends. Additionally, with the auto-white balance, tone mapping, and auto exposure, you’ll always be looking your best when on camera. With the number of video calls you’re doing these days, a high-quality camera is a must. The microphone is also updated, so your calls will come through clearly every time.

Picking the right model for you is about more than finding your favorite color. The price range is also an important component. The base model comes in at $1,299 for a 2-port model. That price goes up to $1,499 for the 256GB SSD model, and $1,699 for the 512GB SSD version. Every option includes the Magic Mouse and Magic Keyboard, so you can take advantage of the extended layout, document navigation controls, and full-size arrow keys at no additional cost to you. These accessories also come in the same color as your computer to keep your desk coordinated.

All of these next-gen features make the iMac’s design second-to-none and are sure to inspire envy from everyone at the office. Not only is it smaller and lighter than other desktop computers, but the high-quality, large screen display makes it easy to work, play, and watch your favorite shows as well. The equivalent LCD on a standard desktop could cost almost double.

Whether you’re an amateur photographer, graphic designer, editor, or student, if you’re on the hunt for a new computer, look no further. With this model, updates are a breeze, and Apple’s support team is ready to help if you run into any issues.

The bottom line? You’re spending hours working at your desk every day, so you deserve a computer that will be aesthetically pleasing and powerful enough to finish everything on your to-do list. It’s important to invest in things that will make your life easier and more fun, and the iMac checks both of these boxes in spades.

This $50 item helped wrangle my messy home office desk

Your home office is where you spend the majority of your time. It's your thinking space, your earning space, your productivity space, and maybe even your lunch space on some busy days. So, your home office desk can get cluttered pretty quickly, and you need some tools to keep your desktop looking organized and inviting, so it's a place you want to be. For Apple users, using the MagicBridge for home offices combines your keyboard and your trackpad into one unit, making a perfectly organized and portable operating surface. We're going to do a MagicBridge review here and go over some of its great features and benefits.
Keeps your desktop organized
Since it combines the keyboard and trackpad in one tight space, the MagicBridge also creates more room on your desktop. For example, you'll have room for an elevated MacBook stand. This type of desk organization will help keep your laptop protected from daily wear and tear, and it will reduce the strain on your neck from squinting to see your screen.
Increases productivity
With the independent keyboard and trackpad on your MacBook, your components move around a bit. Having to look down and find your roaming trackpad may seem like a quick second, but all those seconds add up to a lot of lost time. With the MagicBridge, your fingers will quickly find the components without your eyes having to leave the screen.
Durable build, lightweight design
Made from a polycarbonate material, the MagicBridge adds a layer of protection for your components. It protects them from damage and extends their lives significantly. They won't need to be replaced as quickly as if they were sitting around freely on your desktop. The polycarbonate is also super lightweight and thin, so you can have a sleek, minimalist workspace without clunky accessories.
Versatility is built-in
You can customize your MagicBridge setup and put the trackpad on either the left or right side of your keyboard, depending on which hand you use. With its Bluetooth capabilities and lightweight design, you can use your components on your desktop, on a table, on the kitchen counter, or you can kick back and use it on your lap. Another great benefit is that the MagicBridge can be used with both your Mac book and your iPad.
Easy to set up
You won't have to tinker with this product for very long to get it set up. The keyboard and trackpad click easily in place, and no complex installation is required. Components can also be easily removed by simply putting your finger through one of the three holes on the bottom of the MagicBridge.
Affordable price
Apple products are certainly not known for their affordability. It's a good thing that the MagicBridge is available at an affordable price, so you won't have to break the bank to get a bit of organization into your home workspace.
More great features
Here are some more specific features that were added to the MagicBridge for your comfort and convenience.
Optional silicone keyboard insert
The insert elevates the keyboard slightly above the trackpad so your fingers can easily find either component. You can move it to the right, the left, or completely remove it, depending on your preference.
Silicone feet
Four rubber feet on the bottom of the MagicBridge keep it in place so that your components won't slide or roam around your desktop as you work. These feet also protect your table or desktop from scratches or wear.
Rear charging port grill
You can easily access the charging ports for both your keyboard and trackpad, as well as the power buttons for each through the port cutouts on the grill on the backside of the MagicBridge. This means you won't have to remove your components from the MagicBridge to charge them.

Keeping your home workspace clean and free of clutter is vital in promoting productivity, organization, and even good moods. As an Apple user, you love to have the best smart products and accessories, so the MagicBridge is a great addition to your workspace. With its sleek design, versatile functionality, and affordable price, you'll wonder how you've ever worked without it.
