Finding a 2011 iMac is like........

trying to find a needle in a haystack. Ever since the new iMacs were announced, everyone has gone in and snatched up the old iMacs. I can't purchase one until end of December - and so far, the pickings have been slim.

Anyone know of anywhere besides Apple or eBay were there is more selection of refurb or used iMacs?

You can still get the 27" refurbished iMac from Apple store online. Last monday I actually saw a 21" in the refurbished store although I'm betting it'll be a rare occasion for them to come back in stock before Christmas... You best bet is probably just checking Apple multiple times a day.

+1 on the refurb store. Last I checked, re sellers like B&H, J&R, MacMall, Best Buy, etc. were out. Adorama had a couple 21.5" left last time I checked though..

At this point the refurb store is probably your best bet.

Not quite sure what you mean, I just searched up eBay and found this in a couple seconds.

Craigslist.

That's how I found my high end mid-2010 iMac, and I couldn't be happier.

Thank you all, I was having a hard time finding some. Clearly, I have been looking in the wrong places.
