Apple Starts Selling Refurbished 24-Inch M1 iMacs in the UK

Refurbished 24-inch M1 iMac models are now available from Apple's refurbished store in the UK, just a few months after the machines first launched in April.

Right now, Apple has one 24-inch iMac available in a pink color, which was first spotted by 9to5Mac. The machine features an 8-core CPU, 7-core GPU, and 256GB SSD and it is priced at £1,059, a £190.00 savings over the standard £1,249 price.

Refurbished stock varies based on what people have sent in for repair and replacement, and additional ‌M1‌ ‌iMac‌ models will be available in the future. Those looking for a specific build or a specific color will need to keep an eye on the store to wait for their preferred version to pop up.

All of Apple's refurbished Macs are sold with the same one-year warranty that's offered with a new Mac, plus they come with all manuals and accessories, including a USB-C power adapter and cable. Apple's refurbished devices are subjected to a rigorous testing, repair, repackaging and cleaning process to make them identical to new devices.

Categories for refurbished 24-inch iMacs have also shown up in the United States, so we can expect to see the refurbished ‌iMac‌ models available in other countries in the near future.

Americans speak so funny… "purchased", "refurbished". Just say that it is used, something that someone bought and returned.

not only is it minus 1 GPU core but your minus 1 fan or cooling on this base iMac.
The article failed to mention it.
you would be better off with the upgraded model or the Mac mini M1 where they don't short you a GPU core

Dang! that was fast. Normally the waiting period is 6-8 months for the refurbished models to be put into the market. I have a feeling it's probably easy to manufacture and repair by Apple ;)
Speaking of fast its gone already, check the link, the same for looking at what available in the USA.

I was a defender of the design in photos, then I finally saw them in person. What a horrible let down. Really glad this was Ive’s last major design. He probably wasn’t on board with the poorly executed color scheme, though. Just the poorly executed shape and port removal.
I always thought they looked great in the photos, and then I saw some in the flesh in an Apple Store whilst I was having my phone battery replaced. The colours look great from the back (especially the orange), but from the front they're far too pale. If the orange was the same bold colour all over I'd have one on my desk right now.

In order for something to be Refurbished it would have to be previously owned and returned. I guess Americans just assume people are intelligent enough to grasp that without it being spelled out.
Suppose that’s what happens when you assume.

Also: not every retailer Refurbishes returns before reselling them. Most wipe them down (maybe) pack them back in the box and knock 10-15% off full retail. Apple does quite a bit more, so yeah, the Refurbished quantifier is necessary.
