Following in the wake of a deal on the 6-core 21.5-inch iMac (mid 2020) earlier in the week, Amazon is now offering a new deal on the quad-core model. You can get this 21.5-inch iMac (8GB RAM, 256GB SSD) for $1,219.00, down from $1,299.00.

This is the lowest price that we've seen to date on this model of the 2020 21.5-inch iMac, and it's being matched at B&H Photo. The 21.5-inch iMac received a slight update in 2020 with new SSD models, and they also include Retina 4K displays.

If you're interested in the 6-core option, Amazon still has this iMac for $1,349.00, down from $1,499.00. This is another low price, and it's also being matched at B&H Photo.

Indeed.

Unfortunately, some folks need a computer right now. If I were in that position I'd get an M1 mini + monitor.

Clearing the inventory for the M1s.

Honestly this design was so amazing when it came out, but it feels dated now, so much bezel space for no reason (look online and you’ll see it is basically empty).
Yep all these years and those empty bezel carries nothing. No improvement on microphone, webcam nor FaceID despite it has the largest bezel that could contain a dozen of iPhone mainboards.

Even if you can't wait for a iMac refresh, I think the new M1 is a much better deal than the current iMac.
