Apple has over a dozen ‌M1‌ iMacs available at the current time, and this is the first time the ‌M1‌ iMacs have been available through the refurbished store in the U.S. since the machines launched in April.

The entry-level model with 8-core GPU, 7-core GPU, and 256GB SSD is available for $1,099, which is a $200 discount from the regular price of $1,299.

Apple also has higher-end refurbished models available for purchase, up to an 8-core CPU and 8-core GPU option with a 1TB SSD and 16GB RAM, which is available for $1,779. At full price, the machine would cost $2,099.

There are multiple color options and configurations available at the current time, though stock will fluctuate going forward based on the machines that people are sending Apple for repairs and returns.

Apple's refurbished ‌M1‌ iMacs are sold with the same one-year warranty offered with a new ‌iMac‌, plus they come with all manuals and accessories. Apple uses a rigorous testing, repair, repackaging, and cleaning process to ensure refurbished devices are identical to new devices.

Thanks macrumor, I made my account to thank you. I have been browsing this site for awhile and saw this and jumped on it.

Got silver, 1tb ssd, 16gb ram, for $1601. thumbs up! there was blue and silver loaded ones. I would of snagged a 2tb but there wasn't one. I bought a 256gb 8gb from costco for like 1400 a month or two ago and returned it, I loved it but needed more room.

I originally bought blue, I liked it, but didn't love it. Really excited for this. Dang, I need to find where they have the "trackpad" on apple site now. cannot locate it.

Edit. I dont see the silver 16gb ram 1tb ssd anymore. Must be gone.

Good God.... The fact that I have to dig through each unit to see how much ram and storage it has, vs reflecting it in the heading / in the available unit list is ridiculous. I was like hey, this 8-core 8-gpu is a great deal....it took me a while to figure out I wouldn't touch it with a 10ft pole due to its ridiculously low 8GB of ram.

How hard is it to put 8-Core/8-GPU/8GB/512GB in the heading.. unless you want to trick people into buying something in an impulse buy

I'd just go get a PC before Apple starts scanning the contents of all our files
So that Microsoft can scan your files on the PC. It's in Microsoft Windows EULA they do scan your hard drive.

I am gonna turn off iCloud Photos on macOS.

Linux does not have all the apps I need nor user friendly.

Some people prefer macOS and nothing wrong with that.
