Best Buy is giving the Amazon Big Spring Sale a run for its money with this amazing iMac sale. Apple's all-in-one desktop computer is on sale for up to $600 off for a limited time — hurry if you want this deal, as I expect stock to go fast.

Right now the 24-inch iMac (M1/256GB) is $849 at Best Buy. It's now $400 off and one of the lowest prices I've seen for an iMac, period. This model comes with Apple's M1 Chip, a 7-core CPU and 256GB storage. If you want faster performance and more storage, the 24-inch iMac (M1/512GB) is $1,049 at Best Buy. This model has the M1 Chip, an 8-core CPU and 512GB storage. It's on sale for a huge $600 discount.

It's worth noting that the iMac M3 has since released, and it offers faster performance due to it having Apple's M3 Chip. Still, the iMac M1 handles most everyday computing tasks with ease, and it's extremely rare to see an iMac go for under $900. It's one of the best Apple deals I've seen in ages.

The iMac M1 is a couple of years old now, but check out our iMac M1 review and you'll see it's still a great choice for an all-in-one computer. The M1 Chip speeds through everyday tasks like browsing the web and streaming videos, and the 24-inch 4.5K Retina display makes doing so a joy. We were able to open dozens of tabs and multiple applications in our tests without seeing any slowdown.

Plus, the iMac is a great device for entertainment. The previously mentioned Retina display makes movies look gorgeous, and the iMac's speaker setup consisting of two pairs of low-frequency woofers and one pair of high-frequency tweeters produce powerful sound. And while you probably won't want to use the iMac M1 as your main gaming machine, simple games like Stardew Valley and Sid Meier’s Civilization 6 ran well on this all-in-one.

Editing photos and videos on the iMac M1 also ran smoothly. If you're a career photo or video editor, though, it's probably worth investing in the newer iMac M3 or MacBook Pro M3 Max. They're more expensive, but also offer a significant performance boost that will aid your productivity.

This is one of the best iMac deals I've ever seen, so make sure to grab one before it sells out. Also, don't miss the rest of our Amazon Big Spring Sale coverage.
