Where to buy 21.5 iMac with the disk drive, core i5 for cheap new?

2009, 2010, 2011, early 2012. The one with the disk drive, core i5 processor. I want to run lion or snow leopard on it. I have been looking for months, and my buget is 1200. Thanks!

Craigslist or ebay are probably your best bets and they'll not be new but used.

Apple refurb comes with the box. When I bought my refurb iPad 2 it came in the box.

I've done well buying items from both eBay and Craigslist. Always helps to search nearby cities. Only problem I've ever had on eBay was the post office misplacing the package.

Buy someone else's box. $1189. I'd rather have the puter from Apple in refurb, with full warranty, than buy from CL or EBay and get it out of warranty.

I have severe OCD and the serials must match exactly... I just can't accept a non matching set...
