This is the only version of the 24-inch iMac that's being discounted on Amazon at this time. The retailer gives the estimate of June 1 for the iMac's release and shipping date.

The new colorful iMac line officially launches this Friday, May 21 and has been up for pre-order on Apple's website for a few weeks now. The new model features a complete redesign, improved performance thanks to Apple's M1 chip, and a 24-inch display.

Apple is selling the new iMac in a range of bright colors, including green, blue, pink, silver, orange, yellow, and purple. At the front of the iMac, there are softer, pastel colors, but the back of the iMac features much brighter and bolder colors.
