Today Only: 21″ Apple iMac Quad-Core i5 Desktop on Woot

It may be too late to order a Christmas present, but if you’re in the market for a new desktop computer and have your eye on an Apple then today is your lucky day.  It’s not often you can get a discount on any Apple product,but today the 21.5″ iMac is on Woot, the bargain hunter’s dream web site.

The 21.5 inch iMac starts at $1199 both in-store and on the Apple web site and sales are rare at best.  Woot, today only, is offering it for $1049.  This model comes with a 2.5 GHz Intel quad-core i5 processor, 4 GB of RAM, a 500 GB hard drive, a Radeon 6850M graphics card, and 802.11n WiFi.  These are brand new iMac’s, not refurbished models.

While this deal is good news for those shopping for a new Apple computer, it may also signal that new models are on the way.  That seems to frequently be the case with electronics that show up on Woot, which has had several tablets available recently in their daily deals.  Products like this also frequently sell out quickly, so if you want to get one then you better head over to Woot now.
