If you've been waiting to score a deal on an Apple iMac
system, now is your chance, provided you're not opposed to buying a refurbished model. Apple
just filled its store with a handful of refurbished iMac models that are marked down anywhere from 15 percent to 20 percent, which translates into savings of up to $400 off the normal selling price.
All three discounted models are 27-inch iMac systems. The biggest savings is for an Intel Core i5 3.1GHz quad-core system that's listed at $1,599, or $400 off its normal selling price. That system comes with 4GB of RAM, 1TB hard drive, 8X DVD burner, and AMD Radeon HD 6970M graphics. It also has a FaceTime HD webcam, two Thunderbolt ports, a FireWire 800 port, four USB 2.0 ports, SDXC card slot, 802.11n Wi-Fi, stereo speakers, and a few other odds and ends.
The other two reduced systems sell for $1,529 (2.9GHz, 8GB memory, GeForce GTX 660M, 1TB HDD) and $1,699 (3.2GHz, 8GB memory, GeForce GTX 675MX, 1TB HDD). Refurbished systems come with a wireless keyboard, mouse, power cord, and documentation.
