Deals: Apple's 21.5-Inch iMac Available for $799.99 on Amazon ($299 Off)

Today you can get Apple's 21.5-inch iMac (8GB RAM, 256GB SSD) for $799.99, down from its original price of $1,099.00. This is another Amazon sale price that will not be seen until you head to the checkout screen, at which point a coupon worth $229.01 will be applied.

Compared to past sales, this is a second-best price on the mid-2020 21.5-inch iMac. In January, the iMac hit $599.99, but that sale was extremely limited and did not last long. If you're looking to purchase an iMac for someone who isn't a power user, this is still a solid deal.

Note: You won't see the deal price until checkout.

You can keep track of ongoing sales on Apple's iMac line by visiting our Best iMac Deals guide. There, we keep track of the best iMac offers from Amazon, Adorama, B&H Photo, and other retailers, so be sure to check back often if you're shopping for an iMac for the first time, or thinking of upgrading.

Still not worth the money.

Got for an M1 model or wait for an updated model.

... No one should be grabbing these at any price point, seriously. PC liquidation stores that carry old & refurbed desktop computers with similar spec goes about 1/3 of that price. Sure, this iMac may have decent display, but... ughh
No, this one doesn't have the 4k, its a 1080p screen. Its an absolute garbage computer for a garbage price.

It's still a turd, but at least it's got an SSD instead of a 5400rpm laptop drive.

It’s borderline irresponsible for a tech news website to promote these without a warning
