Ready for some (really) early back-to-school shopping? Amazon is currently offering $550 off a iMac desktop for the rest of Tuesday, June 19. Originally priced at $2,000, you can get it for $1,450 for the next few hours. (Since its a timed deal, you do technically have a bit longer than just today—the deal runs to exactly 2:55 a.m. EST, June 20)
Getting really technical, the deal is on a Apple iMac All-in-One Desktop MK482LL/A 27″. That means a late 2015 model with a 27 inch display. While Apple is not selling that exact model themselves anymore, to put this deal in perspective, more recent version of this iMac is $2,200 new from Apple. The computer also comes with a wire-free, rechargeable keyboard and mouse.
That brings your relative savings up to $750 if you don’t mind forgoing the most recent version. The biggest difference (and we ran this by our own office tech support guru to make sure we 100% understood) is that this model isn’t as fast as the most current model being sold by Apple in terms of “absolute speed.” But it’s still fast, with great retina display and a sleek design that won’t clutter your desktop.
Fulfilled by Amazon and sold by a third-party retailer, the computer comes with a one year Apple warranty, and can be returned for a full refund for 30 days if its unopened or damaged on arrival. You can read more about the return policy on the product listing.
If a new computer is a bit ambitious, Amazon is also running another great tech deal today. The Ultimate Ears Megaboom Radiance speaker is currently $140, down from $250, or 44% off.
Reminiscent of a summer sunset, this is the kind of all-terrain Bluetooth speaker that can take whatever you throw at it: picnics, sandy beaches, boats, and even showers. The waterproof design means you can take it just about anywhere with you, in or outdoors. Megaboom is UE’s largest size, making it great for summer parties or even to use as your main speaker in larger rooms. Like with the iMac, this is a timed deal—it ends at 2:50 a.m. EST.
