Apple's new M1 iMacs are available in a range of color options that include Blue, Green, Pink, Silver, Yellow, Orange, and Purple. The new machines feature vibrant colored backs with lighter colors for the chin and accompanying stand.


Apple is limiting color availability by price point. The entry-level $1,299 M1 iMac is available in Blue, Green, Pink and Silver, while the higher-end $1,499 and $1,699 options are available in all seven colors.

So if you want an iMac in Yellow, Orange, or Purple, you will need to shell out at least $1,499. It's also worth noting that Apple has not introduced any black or space gray versions of the new iMac.

They should’ve just made the bezels and chin the same color and material used on the backside. And if they were determined to keep the chin, at least add the Apple logo to the chin but make it the same color tone of the iMac (the same way it is on the current MacBooks and iPhone Pro).

This white bezel mess is giving me flashbacks of the 7th gen Nano.

Please can
I mean we forget the targetted audience here, students and kids. this will sell like no tomorrow.

Exactly this. If people still don't like/understand this, then maybe Apple isn't the brand for them?

I really REALLY hope we get black/space grey options for the larger size though (presumably planned for later this year).

My guess is that the iMac Pro will have no chin akin to the Pro XDR Display. This iMac is merely for the "average" consumer.

These are great. They are targeted towards general consumers (so not most MacRumors commenters) and will sell like crazy. If we hadn't replaced an older iMac with a MacBook in December, I'd definitely get one of these for the family computer. I'm even considering one for work, although I'll wait for the professional-geared Macs coming out later this year or next year.

mac mini is $$700. So this is $600 for the 4.5k 24" monitor w speakers and camera plus m/k or just k. And actually the $1299 model is only 7 core gpu while Mac Mini is 8 core.

It's all cool until you look at the price tag. And then crawl back into your hole for another year of winter.
