Was this Mid 2011 iMac a good deal?

Just got home with this Mid 2011 iMac 27" it was a floor model but had been only been on display for about a week because they sold the last display model. No scratches or even fingerprints on it. Included the wireless mighty mouse and wireless bluetooth keyboard.

Got it for $1,499, i snatched it up not really knowing how good of a deal it was but i do have 15 days to return with no restocking fee since it was an open box item anyways.

Think it was a good deal?

Got a Refurbished iMac 27-inch 3.4GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7 mid 2011 from apple. Said it had 4g ram and 1g video memory but came with 8g ram and 2g video memory for $1789. Had to wait for it, then jumped when one was available. Also came with os x 10.8 but if you go to apple.com you should be able to update yours for free.

I believe I read that any Mac purchased after a certain date is eligible for a free upgrade to 10.8.

man I had no idea the 6970 was such a beast of a card, just got done playing two hours of CS:GO with everything maxxed out, really pleased.

I submitted my receipts online to apple to qualify for the mountain lion upgrade and just waiting to hear back from that. Hopefully I get that code tomorrow and i can get that installed.

Ya they actually had the mid 2011 base model 27" on clearance for $999 but they didn't have any left and the floor model was beat up. (this was at Fry's)
