If you want anything as outlandish as a 1TB SSD you'll be ordering it from Apple. Do resellers ever stock non-standard but popular "enthusiast" configurations?
They don't stock but you can still custom order directly from them, such as Expercom, B&H Photo, etc

I think the cheapest they ever were was the 2nd generation when they introduced the slot-loading drive, at $999 (which is $1566 with inflation today)
The 2000 iMac 350 MHz was $799 and then in 2004 the eMac started at $799
