TL;DR: As of May 5, get this refurbished 2013 iMac for $499.99 — a 9% savings.
Every few years, Apple releases shiny new versions of their iMac computers. And while they come with fancy new upgrades you never knew you needed, they also come with fancy new price tags.
You might be tempted to pull the trigger on a brand-new iMac, and we don’t blame you. But if it’s computing power, large amounts of storage, and a low price tag that you’re looking for, opting for a refurbished iMac from 2013 will still fulfill your needs.
This 21.5-inch iMac is equipped with a 2.7GHz Intel quad-core i5 processor and 8GB of DDR3 RAM. That’s some solid computing power. You’ll be able to work smoothly on your essential work tasks without worrying about lag. And thanks to its generous 1TB HDD storage, you don’t need to worry about exporting your files to other storage devices.
If you’ve been working steadily on a tiny MacBook throughout the pandemic, the 21.5-inch display will be a welcome change. You can view all of your work files, photos, and videos on a clearer, larger screen without slouching over. And although it hails from 2013, it is equipped with Bluetooth 4.0 and WiFi connectivity, as well as four USB 3.0 ports and two Thunderbolt ports for flexibility.
This isn’t just a random hand-me-down device, either. It’s been through stringent testing by certified technicians to ensure all components are in great working condition. It’s also been cleaned, inspected, and repackaged. It features no glaring cosmetic imperfections and ships with all relevant accessories — power cord, generic wired mouse, and wired keyboard. It’s also been updated to 10.15 Catalina.
Rather than paying thousands for a brand-new iMac, you can snag this new-to-you iMac for only $499.99.
