Amazon and B&H Photo today are offering a few best-ever deals across Apple's 2019 and 2020 iMac updates, including both 21.5-inch and 27-inch models.

Starting at the lower end, the 21.5-inch iMac (2.3GHz, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD) is available for $999.00, down from $1,099.00. This is a new low price for this model of the iMac, and you can find the same price being matched at B&H Photo.
Shoppers should note that although the 21.5-inch iMac technically hasn't seen a hardware update since 2019, Apple does now ship these models with an SSD. This change was made alongside the refresh seen to the 27-inch models in August 2020.
Moving to the larger models, both retailers have the 27-inch Retina iMac from mid 2020 (3.1GHz 6-Core, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD) for $1,649.00, down from $1,799.00. This model previously hit this lowest-ever price around the holidays, and it can also be found on B&H Photo.
Next, you can get the 2020 27-inch Retina iMac (3.3GHz 6-Core, 8GB RAM, 512GB SSD) for $1,799.99, down from $1,999.00. This one is only available at Amazon, and it's a match of the best price we've ever seen, thanks to a $59.01 coupon that will be applied at the checkout screen.
Lastly, Amazon has the 2020 27-inch Retina iMac (3.8GHz 8-Core, 8GB RAM, 512GB SSD) for $2,148.92, down from $2,299.00. Like all the previous models, this is a lowest-ever price and it's the best currently available online among the major Apple resellers.

Like the sale discounts, but those default SSD sizes are about as bad as the 8GB memory sizes, just way too small unless you're using the machine mainly for browsing. My Photo's library alone is almost as big as the 512GB storage size itself.
Yeah the Apple powered iMac will probably have RAM built into the CPU or something (like the M1), but hopefully they'll go with a larger amount.
Here's one over on Reddit saying the same thing:
Seems a shame, but if you want full speed and dual channel its best to put it in the drawer for the 2020 27's, seems like, lots of folks have tested this. Glad the prior model wasn't so fussy about this.
The Intel processor notwithstanding, the 27 inch iMac is a great deal when you consider the price of a comparable 5K display alone.
