Top iMac discounts available right now

You should be able to find some great deals from the likes of KRCS, Currys PC World, John Lewis and Laptops Direct, who are all selling iMac models at a lower price than Apple advertises. Here are some of the best ones we've seen.

We update this list weekly, so it should always be spot on in terms of how much you can save, given a few pounds here or there (retailers often increase or decrease the price shown by a few pounds so if it's a few pounds more than we say here it might be worth waiting a week or so to see if it comes down again!)

From: Amazon

Was: £1,449

Now: £1,099  (£350 off 2017 price)

You can save on the original price of this 2017 21.5in iMac at Amazon. This model has a 4K display and a 1TB Fusion Drive which combines an SSD with a hard drive for the best of both worlds. Note that Apple updated the iMac range in March 2019 and this model has been replaced with a new iMac with better specs so the previous on-sale price is a little misleading, still, it's a much better price than the current entry-level iMac that Apple is still selling for £1,049 despite the fact that it's from 2017 too.

6. Apple 27in iMac, 3.7GHz six-core, 5K Retina Display, 2TB Fusion Drive (2019)

From: Jigsaw

Was: £2,249

Now: £2,230.80  (£19 off)

It's a tiny saving, but it's a saving on the price of the top-of-the-range iMac, new in 2019.

7. Apple 21.5in iMac, 3.0GHz six-core, 4K Retina Display, 1TB Fusion Drive (2019)

From: Jigsaw

Now: £1,434  (£15 off)

You can save money on the new 2019 21.5in iMac with 6-core processor at Jigsaw right now. Beware that the price shown excludes VAT, so don't get too excited! It's still a saving though. 

8. Apple Mac mini, 3.0GHz 6-core, 256GB (2018)

From: Laptops Direct

Was: £1,099

Now: £999.97  (£99.03 off)

Laptops Direct is offering the newest 2018 Mac mini (with a 256GB SSD and i5 processor - so not the entry-level model) for  under £1,000 - a nice deal.

9. Apple iMac Pro, 3.2GHz, 8-core Xeon, 32GB RAM, 1TB SSD, 5K Retina display (late 2016)

From: Laptops Direct

Was: £4,899

Now: £4,398.97  (£500.03 off)

The iMacs have been updated already in 2019, but the iMac Pro is, for now, still the most powerful iMac ever. It's also the most expensive though. Laptops Direct is offering a great discount on the price of the iMac Pro. If you need a powerful pro Mac it's a good choice. We do expect an update to the range in the next few months though.

10. Apple 21.5in iMac, 3.4GHz quad-core, 4K Retina Display, 1TB Fusion drive (2017)

From: Laptops Direct

Was: £1,449

Now: £1,239.97  (£165.22 off 2017 price)

This is the 21.5in version of the 2017 3.4GHz iMac model. Laptops Direct say that they constantly check prices to give you the best deal possible - so if you see it cheaper elsewhere they should sell it to you for that price. Bear in mind that the discount is on the price Apple originally sold this model for - it's no longer available from Apple as a newer model has replaced it.

11. Apple 27in iMac, 3.4GHz quad-core, 5K Retina Display, 1TB Fusion drive, (2017)

From: Laptops Direct

Was: £1,749.97

Now: £1,624.97  (£125 off 2017 price)

This is the entry-level 27in iMac from 2017, so not the newest version of the iMac (the range was updated in March 2019), but you can get a nice saving on the original price of this older model (although we've seen it for less at Laptops Direct previously).

12. Apple Mac mini, 3.0GHz 6-core, 128GB (2018) [KRCS]

From: KRCS

Was: £1,099.00

Now: £1,033.06  (£66 off)

Apple Premium Reseller KRCS is offering discounts on all 2018 Mac mini models. This one isn't the base model, but it's one of the best all-rounders available with a 6-core processor and a storage bump (see our Mac mini review for more info). You can also spread the cost with 10 months interest free credit on Macs over £1,000.

13. Apple Mac mini, 3.6GHz quad-core, 128GB (2018) [Amazon]

From: Amazon

Was: £799

Now: £769.00  (£30 off)

This is a small but decent saving on the price of the 2018 quad-core 3.6GHz Mac mini. (FYI, we've seen this particular model discounted more on Amazon, so it might be worth waiting a week or two for bigger discounts).

14. Apple 21.5in iMac, 3.0GHz quad-core, 4K Retina Display, 1TB HD (2017)

From: Laptops Direct

Was: £1,249

Now: £1,143.97  (£105.03 off 2017 price)

One step up from the non-Retina iMac is the base model of the 21.5in iMac with 4K Retina display. This is the 2017 model, so a newer version is now available from Apple, but this one is available with a discount on the original price from Laptops Direct.

15. Apple iMac Pro, 3.2GHz, 8-core Xeon, 32GB RAM, 1TB SSD, 5K Retina display (late 2016)

From: KRCS

Was: £4,899.00

Now: £4,605.06  (£293.94 off)

The iMac Pro is still the most powerful iMac ever (at least until Apple updates the Mac Pro) and KRCS is offering almost £300 off. You can also spread the cost with 10 months interest-free credit on Mac's over £1,000. Check out our iMac Pro review.

16. Apple 21.5in iMac, 2.3GHz dual-core, 1TB HD (2017) [Amazon]

From: Amazon

Was: £1,049

Now: £956.96  (£92 off)

Get the entry-level iMac for less than £1,000 with this Amazon deal. But remember, this model lacks a Retina display and hasn't been updated since 2017 - and if you look for a discount on a different model from the 2017 iMac range you will be getting a much better deal.

17. Apple 21.5in iMac, 2.3GHz dual-core, 1TB HD (2017)

From: Laptops Direct

Was: £1,049

Now: £959.97  (£89.03 off)

You can get money off 2017's entry-level iMac, which is still the current model because Apple didn't update this one in March 2019. It doesn't have the Retina display but this is a great way to get your hands on an iMac for less than a grand.

18. Apple Refurbished Mac Store (Discounted iMacs, MacBooks and more)

From: Apple

Now: Up to £740 off

You can get a Mac from Apple at much lower prices if you buy from the Refurbished Store. Apple will have thoroughly tested the model and will offer you a full warranty so it can be a great way to get a good deal. Find out more about Refurbished Macs here.

19. Apple 21.5in iMac, 2.3GHz dual-core, 1TB HD (2017) [KRCS]

From: KRCS

Was: £1049.00

Now: £986.06  (£62.94 off)

With this discount you can get an iMac for less than £1000. Although this is the non-Retina display iMac, with a dual-processor, and it hasn't been updated since 2017, so it's not the most powerful of iMacs.

Where to find the best iMac deals

If you want serious savings it's best to look beyond Apple itself. Some Mac retailers offer great discounts on Apple products and Apple accessories, so you should be able to save a few hundred pounds off some iMac configurations.

Beware though - the Mac listed by the reseller may be an older model than the one Apple currently sells. We have seen resellers advertising Macs with money off based on the price they were previously sold at by Apple, even after Apple has started selling a newer Mac at the same price - so the deal often looks a lot better than it actually is.

To get an idea of what the old model should be worth, take a look at Apple's refurbished store to see what Apple is selling the older version for (and remember that buying from Apple, even if it's refurbished will mean you get a full one-year's warranty.)

So be careful to check the age and spec of the machine being sold, and don't automatically assume that it's current. The discount may not be as good as it looks. For this reason we are careful to list the spec and year of the model in our description.

We tend to find some of the best deals on new Macs at Apple reseller KRCS. Discounted Macs often include built-to-order configurations, too.

For accessories like software, keyboards, or mice, check out all the normal electronics retailers you might consider - see our list below for inspiration - and take a look at our guides to the best keyboards and mice for Macs as well as best Mac printer deals and Mac hard drive deals.

We regularly see Mac related deals from the following retailers:

One of the best places to look for iMac deals all year round is the Apple Refurbished Store. There, you'll find huge iMac discounts, sometimes even on the latest models. These iMacs have been returned to Apple for various reasons, and then completely revamped ready for resale. One of the major benefits in buying a refurbished Mac from Apple is that it will come with a one-year warranty so Apple may fix or replace it for free should anything happen to it in that first year.

You won't be able to tell the difference between a refurbished iMac and a brand new iMac aside from the box it comes in, which is white to prevent people buying them and attempting to sell them as new.
