Apple's first M1-powered desktop, the early 2021 24-inch iMac is a sleek, svelte powerhouse that borrows more than a few design points from the latest iPad Pro models. Available in four eye-catching colors -- seven if you spring for the top-tier model -- M1 iMac prices start at $1,299.
Positioned as Apple's lone all-in-one desktop, consumer-level iMacs consistently deliver solid performance at an appealing price point. Apple Silicon lives at the heart of the 24-inch iMac, with the company claiming an 85% increase in processing speeds over 2020's Intel version. The high-end configuration sports an M1 with an 8-core GPU -- one more core than the entry-level model -- two USB 3 ports, Gigabit Ethernet and Magic Keyboard with Touch ID. All variants come with 8GB of unified memory standard, with the option to bump that allotment to 16GB .
Beyond the buffed processor and additional connectivity options, the top-end 24-inch iMac can be had in blue, green, pink, silver, yellow, orange, and purple. The base model comes in blue, green, pink, and silver.
