Refurb / 2011 iMac buying options

I'm seriously considering going the refurb route - for various reasons, and yes I understand I'd still be buying "old" specs for premium.

Having hard time finding many refurb options. Apple store has a few, MacMall -none from what I see. Where else might I look for 2011 iMacs??

Apple's refurb inventory changes constantly, sometimes a few times a day. If you're looking for a particular item, refurb.me can alert you when it becomes available.

Are you looking for the 21.5" or 27"? A few places still have some in stock.

I'm looking for a 21.5 - Apple Store is out of stock and given the situation (no new iMacs available, possibly until next year) I'm not hopeful. Are there any other suggested sellers?

(sorry - don't want to hijack your thread)

These are hard to find... I'd keep an eye on the refurb store or maybe Ebay/Amazon. J&R, B&H, etc. appear to be out. Bestbuy in my area is but you can check yours...

There are a couple places that still have them in stock. B&H seems to be the best deal besides the refurb store.
