Well, where did you buy the iMac and was the computer really 'new' or a 'refurb'? Just bought my wife a new iMac last month from the Apple website (same display size) - going to the Apple > About This Mac shows the information below, i.e. 2019 - DaveWhen I just bought it?
Hi again Fiery - out of curiosity (and only if you want to share), what was the difference in price between the 2017 & 2019 21.5 inch models? I'm assuming that you picked the older machine and that was the one picked up at your local store? If you decide to return the 2017 iMac for the newer one (and if the budget is adequate), consider getting a SSD rather than the fusion drive - my wife's new iMac (shown in my previous post) has a 512 GB SSD. Good luck in your decision. DaveThey are selling it this way on Apple.com I only picked it up at that local store.
