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 we’ve seen, as well as deals on iMac accessories that might interest you too.
Out 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.
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.
We’re focussing on UK deals, as we’re based in the UK. For the best Apple deals in the US, check out Macworld US’s guide to what’s on offer which you can find here.
One of the best places to look for iMac deals 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.

Where to find the best iMac deals
Some Mac retailers are offering discounts on Apple products and Apple accessories, so if you want serious savings it’s probably better to look beyond Apple itself, where you should be able to save a few hundred pounds off some iMac configurations.
We often see great deals from third-party reseller KRCS on Macs and other Apple products. Discounted Macs included 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 too.
We are seeing Mac related deals from the following retailers:
