The iMac has gone through quite a few evolutions over the years. And with its most recent generation of iMacs, which debuted in 2021, Apple has brought back one of the features we love most about traditional iMacs — the cool colors.
Sure, it might not make a difference in performance, but the new pink, blue, orange and green iMacs just look so damn cool. (Yes, classic Apple silver is still available.) Sleek and sexy aesthetics have always been part of Apple’s appeal, but the company has always combined the cool factor with genuinely impressive performance, and the 2021 generation of iMacs is no exception. The newest iMacs are powered by the insanely powerful M1 chip.
We always keep an eye out for new Apple deals, and this weekend we spotted something very rare indeed: a $100 discount on the 2021 M1 iMac computers. Right now via Amazon, you can save $100 on select colors of iMacs, which are normally priced at $1,499. We’re not sure how much longer these savings will last, so for anyone that’s been on the fence about upgrading their desktop, this is the excuse you’ve been looking for.
About the 2021 M1 iMac
When the M1 chip debuted in 2020, it was an order of magnitude faster than everything that came before it. Usually, competitors are fast to catch up when a company makes a major advancement in processing power, but not this time. That’s why we named the 2020 M1 MacBook Air the best laptop of 2020 and 2021. Even after two years, other chip manufacturers are still playing catchup. The M1 line of chips is just that good.
And that’s not the only reason to invest in the new iMacs. Besides their fun new colors, these machines also come with an improved display that has more in common with premium OLED TVs than it does with the average computer monitor.
Some notable features include:
- 24-inch 4.5K Retina display
- P3 wide color gamut
- 500 nits of brightness
- Ultra-thin 11.5-millimeter screen
- 1080p FaceTime HD camera
- Up to 512GB of ultrafast SSD storage
- 8-core GPU and 8-core CPU
Right now, the green and silver versions of the iMac are included in the $100 discount, but we’ve seen this change throughout the day. Head to Amazon to take advantage of these savings. If peak performance isn’t a concern, you can save even more money by opting for the 7-core iMac instead.
