These iMacs are quite outdated and not worth it on sale in my opinion, here is a link that does a good job summarizing the issues.

Only Apple could sell a 2017 “new” computer at over a thousand dollars.

Article needs to mention the 21.5” iMac is from 2017, not “mid 2020” and that it has a 1080p screen.
