Deals: Apple's 21.5-Inch iMac Hits Record Low Price of $599.99 ($499 Off) [Update: Out of Stock]

Amazon today has a great deal on the 2017 Intel 21.5-inch iMac (2.3GHz, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD), priced at $599.99, down from $1,099.00. This is the best price we've ever tracked on this model, and it's only available at Amazon. The sale price will be reflected after an automatic coupon is applied at checkout.

As of writing, there is a delayed shipping estimate for the iMac; the fastest shipping option gives an early February delivery estimate. This is a great deal, so even with the delayed shipping window it's worth locking in the price before the deal expires for those interested.


Final price includes $349.96 taken off at checkout.

Really bad using the list price from 2017 to call this a bargain.

Next you’ll be saying an iPhone X is still worth $999.

2017? isnt that the crappy dual core model? Sounds like a bad deal to buy a 2-core processor in 2022

Sold out now. But at $599 would have been a good deal.

At least it has an SSD, but even so, at $599, it still seems like a high price, considering how underpowered a dual-core processor is in 2022. And it's probably on its last legs in terms of macOS updates. Fair price, in my opinion, would be closer to $399.

I am personally using this model temporarily until the new iMac comes out. I am borrowing from a friend so luckily didn’t have to waste my money. But this thing is super slow! It’s like getting an iPhone 6s nowadays. Yes it technically works but you can’t run a lot of things well and 8GB Ram isn’t enough to have more than a couple things open.
