An iMac is no small investment, which is why it's a good idea spending some time making sure you're getting the iMac that's right for you at the best price. Here, we bring you the best iMac deals available right now, and from time-to-time some great deals on iMac Pro, Mac mini and other desktop Macs.

Our team here at Macworld UK is constantly on the look out for the best iMac deals from around the web. We spot the biggest and best deals from UK retailers, and list them all right here in this article. If you're looking for MacBooks, see our MacBook deals round up here.

Many of the deals offered will run for a limited time or offer limited stock, so you’ll want to keep on top of things in order to get what you want. Right now you can expect to see lots of iMac deals as retailers start to clear stock as they anticipate newer models in the spring of 2019.

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 regularly 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!)

Where to find the best iMac deals

If you want serious savings it's best to look beyond Apple itself. Some Mac retailers offer really good 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 yhe same price. 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 find some of the best deals on new Macs at Apple reseller KRCS. Discounted Macs 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.

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.
