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.

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
