Amazon is now selling the popular M1 iMac for the bargain price of just $1,399 with an upgraded 8-core GPU in tow. That means you're getting the power of Apple silicon with an extra GPU core compared to the standard 7-core option.

Apple's M1 iMac is a stellar machine that features a design that's just 11.5mm thick and a 1080p FaceTime HD camera for video calls, whether they're calls between grandkids and grandparents or something more mundane like homeworkers and their colleagues.

This particular iMac configuration packs 256GB of storage, while the 24-inch 4.5K Retina display features P3 wide color gamut and 500 nits of brightness.

In terms of connectivity, iMac buyers can look forward to multiple Thunderbolt and USB ports as well as Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi 6 communications.

As is so often the case, we don't know for sure when this deal will come to a close — keep that in mind when you're planning your order.

M1 iMac at a price you won't believe

Stocks of this particular iMac already appear to be very constrained and while it's unlikely you will receive your new Mac before Christmas, that might be something worth putting up with in this instance. You're going to get one of the best Mac desktop machines around and at a price you can't beat. That's worth a few weeks of waiting, right?

If a new Mac is on your wishlist this holiday season, this is the deal for you.
