The iMac 21.5 inch is great for anyone, especially students.
The Screen
21.5inch of perfection, the screen is crystal clear. The screen is made for HD video.
Wireless Keyboard
Possibly the best feature of the iMac, the wireless keyboard. It has the same layout as a standard keyboard but contains a Function button. It is one of the skinniest keyboards on the market at just <5mm. It is connected by bluetooth to the built-in hard drive. It can be held metres away from the screen/hard drive and the letters appear on the screen at the same speed as you were standing right next to it.
The Keyboard also has PLAY, PAUSE, FAST FOWARD, REWIND, VOLUME BUTTONS, EJECT AND BRIGHTNESS incase any wonders where they are.
Magic Mouse
This is yet another great feature, the mouse looks great. No buttons are visible,only a apple logo. It fits into your hand. There a variety of ways to use the mouse (EG. Scrolling your finger up and down move then screen up and down) or you can just use it as a normal mouse. Everyone has their own preferences
Magic Touch Pad (optional) £60
The same shape/design as the keyboard can be used in stead of the magic mouse. Like the mouse you can use it in its different ways. It is a laptop mouse for a desktop PC.
Apple Remote (optional) £15
The apple remote is useful if you use your Mac as a TV or DVD Player. It connects using Infa-Red to the Apple logo on the front of the hard drive. Its simple to use, convenient so you dont have to get up and down to change the DVD.
AppleCare
It is worth getting!! It extends your complimentary support, whether it is phone support, online or store support. It is useful if you need support in two years time.

My Opinion
In my opinion this iMac is perfect for someone who creates documents and designs things. The higher spec Mac is for gaming. But this Mac contains software for gaming also.
