B&H Photo and Amazon Discount Base iMac Pro by $500

by

B&H Photo and Amazon have discounted the base model of Apple's new high-end iMac Pro desktop computer by $500 this week, offering it for $4,499, down from $4,999. Since early January, Micro Center has had the best deal on iMac Pro -- pricing the base model at $3,999.99 -- but this offer is unobtainable for those who don't live near one of Micro Center's locations, so B&H Photo and Amazon's deals should be good alternatives for online shoppers with their eyes on iMac Pro.

There are two 27-inch models on sale at B&H Photo, including the base $4,999 configuration and a custom configuration with more RAM and an improved graphics card, both marked down by $500. In comparison, Micro Center's sale is only on the base model, and prior to that the only other sale was a $250 discount from Best Buy.

  • 27-inch 5K iMac Pro, 3.2 GHz, 32GB RAM, 1TB SSD, AMD Radeon Pro Vega 56 - $4,499.00, down from $4,999.00 (B&H Photo / Amazon)
  • 27-inch 5K iMac Pro, 3.2 GHz, 64GB RAM, 1TB SSD, AMD Radeon Pro Vega 64 - $5,899.00, down from $6,399.00 (B&H Photo)

Also of note on Amazon today, you can get the Black and Midnight Blue leather iPhone X cases for just $34.99, dropping further down from a price point of about $37 last week, and originally priced at $50 on Apple.com. The only other color on sale is Charcoal Gray, running for $38.72 at the time of writing.

Just a side FYI, B&H Photo is highly reputable too. All of my purchases have been excellent and they have great customer service as well. That’s important to consider when purchasing an expensive item like the iMac Pro.

It’s a little bit like a $10k discount on a $150k Benz. That’s great and all but I still don’t need a $5k computer.

To be fair, it's a $30k discount on a $150k car.

This doesn’t really make sense. Does it not suggest the iMac Pro isn’t selling very well? Anyway I hope it is selling well because I’m going to need a modular Mac Pro at some point, and if Apple has bad sales on pro computers they’ll stop producing them altogether.

I went to a iMac Pro event at Apple NZ last night. The feedback from everyone (Apple Resellers) was that the iMac Pro is an awesome machine, but most of their customers were waiting to see what the new modular Mac Pro brings before they make decision which way to go. It guess that is why apple doesn't usually reveal what they are working on before it is released, and could explain the discounts.

Most Stores in Germany discount by EURO 500 when bought there instead of Apple Store.
Our iMacPro went for 8599 instead of 9.099..

All stores in Germany I called had this offer. So anyone in Germany thinking of buying an iMac Pro - call your local store instead of the Apple Store and save 500 EURO !

And it is not just the base model. All models minus EUR 500 !
