Amazon today has Apple's 2020 21.5-inch iMac (3.0GHz 6-Core, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD) for $1,379.00, down from $1,499.00. This $120 discount is one of the first major sales on this model of the 2020 21.5-inch iMac, and it's available to ship today.

You can also get the 2020 21.5-inch iMac (3.6GHz Quad-Core, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD) for $1,249.00, down from $1,299.00. This isn't quite the lowest price we've ever tracked on this model, but it is among the best online this week.

This iMac is essentially the same device as the 21.5-inch models introduced in 2019, but Apple now ships it with an SSD by default instead of the Fusion Drive of previous generations. It has a Retina 4K display and a 3.6 GHz quad-core 8th-generation Intel Core i3 processor.

There are also a few 27-inch models still on sale this month, including the model with a 3.1 GHz 6-core processor, 8GB RAM, and 256GB SSD for $1,679.92, down from $1,799.00. Lastly, the 27-inch iMac with a 3.3 GHz 8-core processor, 8GB RAM, and 512GB SSD is priced at $1,899.00, down from $1,999.00.

Unlike the 21.5-inch models, these 27-inch iMacs did receive a few internal upgrades in 2020, with Apple introducing 10th-generation Intel processors, more RAM, more SSD storage, faster AMD GPUs, and True Tone support for the 5K display. Across the board, Amazon's sales remain the best discounts that you'll find on these iMacs in early 2021.

You can keep track of ongoing sales on Apple's iMac line by visiting our Best iMac Deals guide. There, we keep track of the best iMac offers from Amazon, Adorama, B&H Photo, and other retailers, so be sure to check back often if you're shopping for an iMac for the first time, or thinking of upgrading.

Forgot to mention the addition of the T2 chip, 1080p web cam and improved 3-array microphone upgrades in the 27" models as well

Or, like me, you want to be able to dual boot into Windows. We just ordered a new 27" iMac with an Intel processor, in the hopes that it will last us quite a while.

For what is worth, I got one too on early august and it actually flies. I’m confident that, barring any hardware failure, it will hold up for many years... it’s a great machine.

I think it will still sting and seem tempting whenever the Mx iMac appears with plenty more power, but so be it, that’s the nature of tech.
Honestly, can’t wait for it to appear, see that ace card Apple has in action.
Oh, I REALLY want a 14 or 16 inch MBP with the new silicon, but had to take care of the Mrs' computer first. :) She is the one who really cares about dual booting, for my personal use, I am pretty rooted in Apple's ecosystem....

I think this is nothing but a sale of some iMac inventory by Amazon knowing in a few months there will be Apple Silicone updates to them.
