Amazon and B&H Photo have new sales on the 21.5-inch and 27-inch iMac from Early 2019, discounting a few models by up to $200. The centerpiece of the sale is the 27-inch 5K model with a 3.0GHz Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB RAM and a 1TB Fusion Drive for $1,599.00, down from $1,799.00.

At $200 off, this is currently the best price for this model of the iMac available among the major Apple resellers online. You can also purchase the model on sale at B&H Photo, but the retailer does note that there is a limited supply of iMacs at this time.

While not as deeply discounted, there are a few other notable 2019 iMac sales happening this week. You can get the 21.5-inch 4K iMac (3.6GHz Quad-Core, 8GB RAM, 1TB Fusion Drive) for $1,199.99, down from $1,299.00 on Amazon. Additionally, the 21.5-inch 4K iMac (3.0GHz 6-Core, 8GB RAM, 1TB Fusion Drive) is on sale for $1,414.95, down from $1,499.00 on B&H Photo.

Apple updated the iMac lineup in March 2019 after a two-year wait, introducing 8th and 9th-generation Coffee Lake processors and upgraded Radeon Pro Vega graphics options for major performance improvements over 2017 models. Apple says the 21.5-inch iMac is up to 60 percent faster than the previous-generation model, while the 27-inch iMac is up to 2.4 times faster.

200 off? How generous for a machine that has an 8th gen CPU and a clunky mechanical 5400RPM HDD.

Mechanical storage? No thanks.

iMacs are great machines, but they're glued shut and thus hard to service. Mechanical hard drives tend to fail. I don't want a component that tends to fail sealed in there.

Pure SSD is the only sensible option with iMacs. Reduce the number of moving parts as much as possible. Ever since my job moved to buying pure SSD iMacs the amount of machines we've had to send to servicing has dropped to nearly zero.

Apple please stop, it’s 2020. I feel sorry for any non-tech savvy people that fall into the entry level iMac trap and get performance like it’s the early 2000s

I hear Apple tried to hire Joe Biden to endorse this iMac in a new series of ads. The tag line is “It’s even older than me!”

Like the comment above, it's 2020 and I'm not buying any machine with RX580-based dGPU that isn't swappable. The iMac line needs a refresh with at least AMD 5XXX series replacing that. Would be great to kill off all spinning HDDs and boost the base RAM while you're at it too. Doubt we'll see processor bumps until late 2020/2021.
