    The deed is done! New (refurbed) iMac on the way
    Well, I pulled the trigger on the iMac this morning. Got a 20" intelly for $1399 from the apple refurb store. Saved bout $300. Of course I will upgrade the memory myself. Woot!!

    Did the same thing about a week ago...
    Very wise decision !

    I think these "refurbs" are just an approach to a
    different market and to sell down inventory as an
    upgrade for the iMac comes near.

    Looks and operates new in every way. I used some of
    the savings to buy the extra Apple Care contract and
    an extra ram card.

    The iMac 20 is awesome !

    Never be swayed by 'refurbs' when it comes to Apple - they're as good as new

    In fact, after speaking to the apple rep, the refurbs often get more scrutinized than a new unit off the line. They get a new enclosure, as well as any new parts require, full warranty. Brand new, just can't be sold as new.

    Wow, I didn't know they went through all of this! I just ordered a refurb 12" iBook and am particularly excited to hear it will have a new enclosure...
    Oh, and, aahh, I'm going to have to go ahead and ask you to come in on Sunday, too...yeah
