    Is this a good deal for an iMac?
    Sorry if this isn't the place to ask this, I just need some opinions.

    Do you guys think this is a good deal?

    $750.00 shipped for:
    21.5 inch iMac, late 2009 model
    Processor Speed: 3.00 GHz
    Hard Drive Capacity: 500 GB
    Memory: 8 GB

    I'm currently using a 2008 macbook with 2 GB ram and a cracked screen. I'll be using it for design work, adobe products will be run all the time. So what I'm looking for is something a bit faster with a better display. I'm not too worried about HD space because I have multiple externals.
    is this a good price?

    My main concern is that will a late 2009 model still hold up? I'm on a 2008 that has turned to crap over the years, granted it doesn't have as good as a processor and has 1/4 the RAM. I'm just wondering if you guys think it's a decent deal.'

    Thanks!

    It's a little on the high side.

    The price is reasonable. Also consider a later model from Apple refurbed. It will be much faster (GeekBenchTest shows nearly twice as fast) and the memory is owner installable. It will come with a full 12 month warranty, upgradeable to 3 years with AppleCare, and eligible for free OS X.8 upgrade.

    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
