Apple now only sells its 24-inch iMac with M1. Its other desktop computers are the Mac mini, Mac Pro, and the all-new Mac Studio announced at its March Event on Tuesday. From Apple:

Apple today introduced Mac Studio and Studio Display, an entirely new Mac desktop and display designed to give users everything they need to build the studio of their dreams. A breakthrough in personal computing, Mac Studio is powered by M1 Max and the new M1 Ultra, the world's most powerful chip for a personal computer. It is the first computer to deliver an unprecedented level of performance, an extensive array of connectivity, and completely new capabilities in an unbelievably compact design that sits within arm's reach on the desk. With Mac Studio, users can do things that are not possible on any other desktop, such as rendering massive 3D environments and playing back 18 streams of ProRes video.1 Studio Display, the perfect complement to Mac Studio, also pairs beautifully with any Mac. It features an expansive 27-inch 5K Retina display, a 12MP Ultra Wide camera with Center Stage, and a high-fidelity six-speaker sound system with spatial audio. Together, Mac Studio and Studio Display transform any workspace into a creative powerhouse. They join Apple's strongest, most powerful Mac lineup ever, and are available to order today, arriving to customers beginning Friday, March 18.

As noted the new Mac Studio arrived alongside Apple's new Studio Display, however both can be used separately with other devices.

  • So now the entry price for a 27" mac is $3600? Quite a step up from the $1300 for 24". And DOUBLE the previous 5K retina 27" imac that started at $1800. How is that considered a "replacement"?
  • $1999 for the M1 Max Mac Studio
