    Is This iMac Worth it?
    So I got offered to buy this, Apple iMac "Core i5" 3.3 27-Inch (5K, Late 2015) , for $600. Do y'all think its worth the money? Here is the serial number: c02s90w2gg7n. Should I drop the $600, or save up a little more and get a newer one? I don't have that much money so I'm not trying to buy a $1500 one. I can add a couple more hundred dollars if another thing is a better deal. What yall think?

    Specs:
    iMac Retina 5k, 27 Inch
    Processor: 3.3 GHz Intel Core i5
    8GB 1867 MHz DDR3
    Graphics :AMD Radeon R9 M395 2048MB

    Ebay is usually the best place to check prices of used items. If this 2015 27" iMac is good/great shape...$600 from what I'm seeing a pretty good price.

    Check it out here and as suggested, the price for similar Macs under the "Completed Items" option at eBay:
    Mac2Sell - Argus, Evaluation, Guide to used Mac, iPad, iPhone & iPod

    Personally, I would have thought that iMac would be at least double the $600.00usd asking price.

    Hey Patrick...from what I saw...many of these were selling for $1000+ from resellers...and less from individuals. Also saw a couple in the $500-$600 range...but had cracked glass. $600 for this one if in good shape should be a real deal.

    If that was the case, it would be worth a lot more, especially to those involved in backwards engineering with all the sleuthing stuff.
