Replace 12:00pm ET:Or at the least you might. This iMac is at the moment not accessible however examine again as a result of Amazon has been identified to re-up offers.
Each as soon as in a whereas there’s a Mac sale that makes you rub your eyes, do a double-take, and refresh the webpage to make sure it’s actual. And this one is actual, all proper. Amazon is selling an M1 iMac for $999.99, and that is a mannequin that usually sells for $1,499, so you save about $500.
There’s one catch to this deal: the iMac on the market is pink, or extra particularly, the entrance, stand, mouse, and keyboard are pink, whereas the again is pink. However that looks as if a minor compromise to get a nice deal on an iMac with an M1 processor, an 8-core GPU, and 8GB of reminiscence. Additionally, it has a 256GB SSD, which is on the small facet for file storage, however you can join an exterior drive or use iCloud.
In my review of the iMac again in June of 2021, I wrote, “If you have an older 21.5-inch iMac and wish to improve, the 24-inch mannequin is a compelling product. You not solely get a velocity enchancment over the Intel-primarily based iMac, you get to depart behind previous expertise for thrilling new tech in Apple’s System on a Chip.” The iMac in my overview was the pink/pink mannequin, and it wears the colours brilliantly.
Rumor has it that Apple will launch a new iMac with an M3 chip, however not till the second half of the yr on the earliest. The M1 within the iMac is a superb chip and affords the efficiency most customers want for on a regular basis duties and client-stage inventive work, reminiscent of iMovie initiatives, GarageBand works, and extra.
