Best places to buy the 24-inch Apple iMac M1: Amazon, Best Buy, and more
Apple’s latest 24-inch iMac has become a solid AiO solution for Mac users offering a brand new sleek design and powerful hardware powered by the company’s M1 Silicon chipset. It’s available in seven vibrant colors with matching Magic Keyboard and Magic Mouse in various configurations. If you’re planning to get one for yourself or your family, there are various outlets where you can drop your money.
But before we look at those, it’s important to understand that, while the new 24-inch make is primarily available in three models (priced at $1,299, 1,499, and $1,699), you can configure these with more RAM, storage, and a bunch of other add-ons. To know more, check out our guide explaining which model of the M1 iMac should you buy.

Probably one of the first places you’re going to head to is Amazon, as it’s one of the most reliable places you can get the new iMac from, and at times it’s faster than any other outlet. You can go for the 7-core GPU with 256GB of storage or the 8-core GPU version with 256GB or 512GB storage. Regardless of which model you choose, you only get 8GB of RAM as Amazon doesn’t sell the 16GB RAM variant at the moment. If you want a particular color, note there are limited options as not all of the seven colors are available. You can choose between Blue, Silver, Green, and Pink. Notably, Amazon is currently selling the base model at a discounted price of $1,249 instead of $1,299.
Best Buy is another good place you should definitely check out, although it offers the same configuration options as offered by Amazon. Essentially, what this means is you can’t buy the latest 24-inch iMac with 16GB of RAM from Best Buy; neither can you get it in Yellow, Orange, or Purple colors.
If you want a wider selection of configuration and color options on the 24-inch iMac, B&H has a good selection to choose from including the base model with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage priced at $1,299. The store also has the top-tier model with 16GB of RAM and 2TB SSD available in all seven color options.
Just like B&H, Adorama is another reliable online store that sells the new 24-inch iMac with M1. You get all configurations and colors, but make sure you choose the correct price as some of the models are being sold at a slightly higher price.
The most obvious choice for most customers planning to buy the new iMac is Apple’s official website. They take more time for delivery, but it’s currently the only place where you can configure the machine to its absolute limit. I’m talking about the 8-core CPU and GPU option with 16GB of RAM and up to 2TB of storage available in all seven color options.
A popular place for all your PC requirements, Newegg also has a range of Apple’s computing devices including the new 24-inch M1 iMac. Currently, Newegg has limited stocks so you might not get the right configuration or color of your choice, but there are some discounted prices. I highly recommend ensuring you’re getting the right model with the right set of features and cross-check on Apple’s website for the correct MSRP before making a purchase.
