Apple has removed the 21.5″ iMac from its range. That was an older model, dating from 2017, with a seventh-generation Intel Core i5 processor on board. Apple no longer offers an iMac in this format.
The iMac, which can still be found using the Wayback Machine, has a 2.3GHz Intel Core i5-7360U on board with 8 to 16GB DDR4-2133 memory on board. Storage is provided by a 256GB SSD, a 1TB hard drive or a hybrid ‘fusion drive’. The display has a resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels. The iMac cost 1200 euros when introduced, but it was probably cheaper at Apple later in its life.
The site’s takedown appears to have happened sometime in the past few days. Apple does not announce or explain the removal of the device from the range, but it almost never does in these kinds of situations.
What remains now are Apple’s iMacs with 24″ screens, equipped with their own M1 hardware, and the 27″ iMacs, which have tenth-generation Intel Core processors. Since December of 2020, Apple has been offering devices equipped with its own M1 socs, which are part of an ever-growing share of its offering. Rumors of an upcoming 27″ ‘iMac Pro’ with M1 hardware are also circulating, which is expected to hit the market sometime early in 2022.
