    I decided I'm going to get a refurb iMac but currently they only have one refurb 27 inch with some okay specs, not for me.

    So does anyone know when Apple updates avaliable refurbs?

    I don't know if there is a particular time of day that Apple adds refurbs, but when I've been in the market for one, I check the refurb site several times a day.

    You can also go to and check out which models were previously available, and how long it's been since they were on the refurb store. They also will send you email alerts when a particular model is in stock, but I can never seem to get that to work correctly.

    Can be any time of day. Best to buy as soon as you see what you want as they don't hang around for long.

    Made this thread last night, and Apple only had one low-mid range iMac in the refurb section. Randomly checked back a few minutes ago and they had the exact iMac I was looking for!


    Oooh yeahh!!!

    For future reference, this alert system works really well:

    It checks every minute, so when the iMac I wanted popped up it told me within 1 minute via email. Highly recommended.

    Yeah they all models of Refurbs in stock yesterday. It resulted in some more indecision for me for a while till I finally decided on a new 27" 2012 iMac instead of the refurb.
