Refurbished Late 2013 21.5-Inch iMac Debuts in Apple's Online Store

by

Yesterday, Apple began offering refurbished models of the current 27-inch iMac in its online store for the first time, and while two of the three available models quickly sold out, the company is clearly working to expand availability by adding not only another 27-inch configuration but also a pair of 21.5-inch models today. The newly listed models, all of which ship in 1-5 business days, include:

- 21.5-inch iMac 2.7GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 with 8 GB RAM, 1 TB hard drive, and Intel Iris Pro graphics: $1099 ($200 savings)

Me too. I am in the market for one and when I found out there was no dvd drive, I literally stopped in shock. It's supposed to be an all in one.


Get a 27"er, fully maxed out, slap in an SSD and buy yourself enough RAM.
You won't regret it.

I have a fully specced out (just HDD though... YET) one and I'm damn happy.
This thing is still a beast and the DVD drive is there.

I know Apple thinks that what they did with the floppy drive is true again nowadays, but I for one do need it, so they can have this fancy idea of moving forward all they want, I need the drive and I hate clutter on my desk.

I was so damn lucky I got my new iMac model in the year 2011 and I was positively surprised that even in 2012 and 2013 my model still looks damn nice. (the choice of model I mean)

iTunes movies are too expensive here.
As are TV shows on iTunes.
Also you don't get to "own" them. You just license them with crappy DRM tacked on it.
The movie/tv show industry needs to take a lesson from the music industry, but it seems they haven't suffered enough yet. DRM is on a surge, games are no better.
When I buy games for Windows, granted it's often a Steam sale, but I fancy my PS3 DRM-free ones way more.
I'm a collector, so the physical disc I'll always get, PC Steam versions are good for eventually getting my Youtube gaming channel going etc...

Wow, sorry for the long post.

And I like my Quad, too. 2011 tech, but imho it might be a bit older than current models, but I get so many benefits with it. A DVD drive that doesn't have to sit on my desk separately being one of them. I don't fancy clutter.
