Apple today introduced discounts for its new iMac lineup for its Employees Purchase Program,¬†signaling it could be further caught up with demand and moving past the significant constraints it experienced in the months following launch. On top of 25 percent off, which brings the top of the line iMac model down from $1,999 to $1,599, Apple’s employees get $500 toward Macs every three years.

Up until today, Apple wasn’t offering EPP discounts on the new iMac lineup (something it has done for new backordered products before), but this could be because the product has experienced significant constraints in the last few months of production.

Earlier this month shipping times finally improved for iMacs in at least the United States and Canada with estimates now quoted as “within 24 hours.”

Last week, Apple also announced a new 21.5-inch iMac variant that brings a lower $1,099 entry price for education customers and offers slightly downgraded specs with a 3.3GHz dual-core Intel Core i3 CPU, 4GB of RAM, Intel HD Graphics 4000, and a 500GB hard drive.
