The recently announced 24in Apple iMac with the M1 processor is now available to pre-order as of 30 April. Shipping begins in the second half of May.
You can pre-order the new iMac directly from Apple and a number of other retailers. We're tracking all the places you can buy the new iMac right here.
As a throwback to the past, the latest devices will ship in an assortment of colours; but unlike the past generations, the 4.5K Retina display will be totally flat, with slimmer bezels, a smaller chin, and just 11.5mm thick.
You can thank the M1 chip's SoC architecture for the new chiselled look. The M1 also boosts performance by up to 85%, with up to double the GPU speed, making demanding tasks such as 4K video editing on multiple streams without dropped frames in Final Cut Pro possible.
The new 24in iMac also features a 1080p FaceTime HD camera, studio-quality microphones, and a six-speaker set up with added Dolby Atmos support. If you want to learn more about the specs and features on the M1 iMacs see this handy article.
