  • A wise path to follow is to procure best what your pocketbook can afford.

    When the budget is tight, and the demand is great, nothing better than a refurbished unit. Gareth, take a look up above, in that dark grey bar, push store, and then go over to the right side, and type in the search-bar "refurbished imac" and keep an eye out, the list changes often, and rotation varies.
