In his November 14, 2007 review, Cliff Edwards of BusinessWeek states, "A minimalist redesign, a zippy new OS, and terrific new software make the iMac the all-in-one desktop computer of choice for multimedia lovers."  He gave the iMac a rating of 4.5 out of a possible 5 stars.

Edwards goes on to state that "the iMac has very quickly become the machine to beat if you want an all-in-one desktop computer. Between its design makeover, new multimedia software, and the ability to play games once confined to Windows-based computers and dedicated game consoles, the iMac remains the undisputed champ even as rivals Gateway (GTW), Hewlett-Packard (HPQ), and Sony (SNE) step up their offerings."

The review goes on to state tha the design, ease of set-up, Mac OS X Leopard, and iLife as reasons that keep the iMac as the "Desktop Star".  Edward also mentions, "Few would argue iMacs aren't things of beauty, but what really makes them stand out is Apple's great software. High on that list is the company's new operating system, OS X Leopard, released in late October. Leopard is yet another notch in Apple's belt that will keep it ahead of rival Windows machines in the consumer space... Unlike the new Windows Vista platform, Leopard took only about 30 seconds from the time I turned the machine on until it was ready for me to use. Some Windows machines can take as long as three minutes to boot."

His review closes with the following statement, "While many people are turning to notebooks for their next computers, anyone buying the new iMac won't be disappointed."
