Apple Discontinues 27-Inch iMac

Following the launch of the new Mac Studio and Studio Display, Apple has discontinued the 27-inch iMac.

imac 27 inch
The 27-inch ‌iMac‌ had remained in the ‌iMac‌ line alongside the smaller 24-inch ‌iMac‌ with Apple silicon and was one of just a few Macs that still featured an Intel processor.

Now with the 27-inch Studio Display that can be connected to any Mac, Apple has seemingly felt there is no need for a large-sized all-in-one desktop computer. The 24-inch ‌iMac‌ is now the only all-in-one desktop computer offered by Apple.

I am an iMac 2017 27 inch user and I am disappointed about this news. Not that I was planning to upgrade but just in general, having a lot of power in an all in one was great and the iMac 27 was a real bargain as well. The price level for this new display and studio Mac is so much higher and not everyone wants a separate display.

It's not really perfect when you see the price of the M1 Ultra and the 27" display cost compared to the old 27" iMac. It's at least double the cost and triple when you include the Studio display and a few upgrades like storage, RAM etc.

Let’s not forget that the M1 Mac mini is more powerful than most offered 27 inch iMacs excepting some of the most powerful options. So the 1599 dollar studio display + M1 Mac mini of 699 is likely the new iMac 27 inch entry comparison price. So like 2300 dollars. And the iMac 27 inch started at 1799.

Hmm I forget the keyboard and mouse (99 dollar without Touch ID and 79 dollar for mouse) which were also included with iMac. So almost 2500 starting price compared to 1799…. A 700 dollar increase is indeed a lot.

Its a sad day mates.

My hope is that when the 24" gets an update in the future that another size (30"+) is added. Obviously not a Pro product, but a larger display would be nice.

In Sweden the display costs al ost as much as the Mac studio. It’s crazy that they don’t have a cheaper display. The iMac 27 gave people a great looking and powerful computer.
