Refurbished iMacs were just updated!
All but two were sold out all weekend but a few new ones just popped up. Just pulled the trigger on the high-end one ($2039). I have until January 7th to return it if the new one comes in and I like it more. Woohoo! No more waiting!

Yes, it's worth it for me. I've been waiting for the new iMac for over a year. Within the last month my needs have increased because my old one (early 2006) is significantly slower and I'm working on a masters thesis.
I almost bought the refurbished when the new one was announced, mostly because the improvements weren't worth the wait. I decided not to because they would be here in December.
Truth is, even if they do release in December, I might not even get one until February due to availability. If that's the case, I'm perfectly happy with the refurbished model. At least I know they are stable and are good machines.
If the new one is available in December I will go and check it out. If I think it's better than mine and worth the hassle, then I'll do the swap. I'm not just doing it to rent the computer for a month with 100% return intentions. I'm just hedging my bets a bit.

I picked up the 27" 256 ssd i7 3.4 ghz 20 minutes after the Apple event and promptly added 16 gigs of ram and this thing is money. Money well spent. It handles all my work stuff and even a few games I play like dirt 2 at full spec without a hiccup. I'm extremely happy I wasn't dumb enough to wait and get a beta test machine. There will be issues with this new one I am 100% sure.
