After announcing the all-new iMac M1 today at the Spring Loaded event, Apple has shared all the details of the totally redesigned all-in-one Mac. Let’s take a look at what you’re missing out on with the base $ 1,299 model, storage and RAM options, I / O, the new Touch ID Magic Keyboard, and more.
The 24-inch iMac M1 comes in three standard configurations with custom configurations also available to increase storage and RAM. Notably, the base iMac 2021 lacks a few different features and benefits than the mid- and high-end version. And even with the new iMac M1s on order at the end of April, Apple is still selling the older 27-inch Intel version.
Basic IMac M1
The entry-level iMac M1 costs $ 1,299 and comes with an 8-core processor and a 7-core GPU. It offers 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of SSD storage.
However, you don’t get the Ethernet port built into the power supply that came with the mid and high-end iMac M1s (or you’ll have to pay for the upgrade). You also only get two Thunderbolt / USB 4 ports and a standard Magic Keyboard (Touch ID costs extra).
It is available in four colors (instead of seven): blue, green, pink and silver. And storage options for custom builds up to 1TB and RAM up to 16GB.
Medium, high-end and custom IMac M1
The more expensive iMac M1 start at $ 1,499 and up. You get an 8-core processor and an 8-core GPU, storage options up to 2TB, and RAM up to 16GB.
The AC adapter comes with a built-in Gigabit Ethernet port and there are two Thunderbolt / USB 4 ports on the back and two USB 3 ports. They also come standard with the new Magic Keyboard with Touch ID.
Another advantage of more expensive models is seven color choices: blue, green, pink, silver, yellow, orange and purple.
VESA option, Touch ID Magic Keyboard, and more
All M1 iMac models feature the new ultra-slim design, 4.5K 24 inch display, M1 chip, new magnetic power cable, Wi-Fi 6, power plug Thunderbolt 4 support, FaceTime HD 1080p webcam, Dolby Atmos support, etc.
It is also possible to purchase the new iMac 2021 with VESA mount. It spins the same price to opt for the support instead of the support.
Interestingly, Apple hasn’t released the new Touch ID Magic keyboards for sale yet. But they will work with all M1 Macs.
The iMac M1 will be available to order from April 30, and delivery will begin in the “second half of May”.
