You can currently get Apple’s beautiful and powerful M1 iMac for less than $1,000. The 24-inch all-in-one computer is currently available for $999.99 after a massive $499.01 discount.

The deal is on the more powerful eight-core CPU variant of the 24-inch iMac, which ships with two Thunderbolt ports and two USB 3 ports.

Update: Amazon sold out of these units so the deal is now over.

24-inch iMac combines beauty and brains

Featuring a sleek 11.5mm chassis, the 24-inch iMac is a big departure from its Intel counterparts. It is not only slimmer and lighter but also notably faster. And even better, it runs cooler and consumes less power than Intel iMacs.

On the inside, the 2021 iMac utilizes Apple’s mighty M1 chip. It is cooled by two small fans that are barely audible even when the machine is under heavy load.

Despite the computer’s slim design, Apple managed to fit a six-speaker setup inside the M1 iMac. The setup includes a pair of force-canceling woofers and a high-performance tweeter to deliver excellent sound quality.

Besides its design and performance, the 4.5K Retina display is another highlight of the iMac. While it misses out on ProMotion, it has a rated brightness of 500 nits with P3 wide color gamut support.

The eight-core model ships with a power brick featuring a built-in Gigabit Ethernet port. Apple will also bundle a Touch ID Apple Keyboard with your purchase.

Grab the M1 iMac at its lowest-ever price

Prices for the M1 iMac start at $1,299, for the entry-level model that ships with a seven-core GPU. Then, there’s the $1,499 variant featuring four USB-C ports, an eight-core GPU, Gigabit Ethernet and more.

Take advantage of Amazon’s latest deal now, and you can get the $1,499 iMac for less than the price of the entry-level iMac. The only catch is that the discount is available only on the yellow, pink, orange and purple colors. The more common silver shade is listed for its full price.

This is the best deal we have ever seen on the M1 iMac. And given you are getting a whopping $499.01 off, stocks are likely to run out soon. So, place your order as soon as possible.
