Apple Now Selling Refurbished 2017 27-Inch iMac Models

Apple today updated its online store for refurbished products to add the new 27-inch iMac models that were first released in June of 2017.

This is the first time those particular machines have been available through the refurbished store since their introduction at the 2017 Worldwide Developers Conference. The iMacs feature Kaby Lake processors, faster SSDs, and AMD discrete graphics.


Apple has a dozen refurbished iMac models available at the current time, with prices discounted by approximately 15 percent. An entry-level model with 8GB RAM, a 1TB Fusion Drive, a 3.5GHz i5 processor, and a Radeon Pro 575 is priced at $1,699, for example, a $300 discount off the standard price.

Apple has a range of configurations available, from low-end to top-of-the-line. As with all refurbished products, stock will fluctuate regularly based on the machines Apple is getting in for repair.

All of Apple's refurbished products go through a rigorous refurbishment process before being offered for sale, which includes inspection, repairs, cleaning, and repackaging. Refurbished Macs come with a one-year warranty that can be extended with an AppleCare+ purchase. For more tips on purchasing a refurbished product, make sure to check out our guide.

Apple's refurbished Products are excellent and go through a stringent process for inspection, which in some cases, are less likely to have fewer issues over new products out of the box. It's still a discount none the less.

Sometimes people take them back within the Return Policy period (probably because a significant other made them) ;)


Remember this story?

Apple's refurbs are probably the best kept little secret among the general public.

Argh. Are they all sold out already, or am I just on one of their servers that hasn't updated. I only see the 2015.

I really want a modern one. My old 27in is getting long in the tooth.

Oh man I really want one of these. I've got one at work and it flies! 5K 4.2GHz i7, 32GB RAM, 512GB blazing fast SSD and a Radeon 575. I want one at home! The display is amazing, but I'm really tempted to wait for Pro Motion to come to the iMac.

Why buy refurbished when you can buy new for less when on sale and with no tax at several online online retailers, like Adorama or Frye’s?

From India, so hence, 'm gonna ask:

Who is out there that buys in 2017 and also sells that in 2017 before the end of 2017?

I don't understand. It is my understanding of Refurbish is wrong.


I suspect those are from people taking advantage of the 14-day return policy when they regret their drive selection or decide the 5K screen isn't quite perfect enough.

It also appears that the whatever 2017 refurbish existed have sold out because I'm not seeing any either.

They are mostly open-box store returns.

Posted 25 minutes ago, and all 2017 units sold, already? All listed are 2015 models.

Click bait?
