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.

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) ;)

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.

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. Or Is my understanding of Refurbish is wrong?
They are mostly open-box store returns.
