.....21.5-inch Intel iMac is no more....


Apple Discontinues Intel-Based 21.5-Inch iMac

....Apple has quietly discontinued the Intel-based 21.5-inch iMac, which had remained available as a low-end configuration suitable for educational institutions. This leaves customers with the 24-inch and 27-inch iMac models to choose from.

A single 21.5-inch iMac configuration remained part of the iMac lineup following Apple's "Unleashed" event last week, but Apple has confirmed it is being discontinued and will no longer be sold through its online store or in Apple retail stores. The 21.5-inch model will remain available through third-party providers until supplies last.

The discontinued 21.5-inch iMac configuration included a 2.3GHz dual-core 7th-generation Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD, and Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640 for $1,099.

The iMac lineup now starts with the new 24-inch model released in April of this year, with key features including Apple's M1 chip and an updated design available in several colors. The 24-inch iMac starts at $1,299. For customers wanting an even larger iMac, the 27-inch iMac remains in the lineup.

Apple stopped selling several higher-end 21.5-inch iMac configurations after the 24-inch model launched and now the 21.5-inch model has been discontinued entirely. Apple continues to sell some refurbished 21.5-inch iMac models through its online store.

I'm honestly surprised these were still on sale!

Just checked, the MacMini is still available with an Intel Chip!

IIRC, Apple killed the PPC models as soon as the equivalent Intel chip models were available.

The Intel Mini models offer functions that the M1 Mini lack like 3 monitor support out of the box.

I also assume Apple will offer the Intel Mini as potentially the last model for sale.
