    Hi

    I was in John Lewis yesterday and they have the 'old style' 24" iMac's for £1049.

    I can't seem to find them anywhere else to compare the price - does this seem about right/cheap?

    I fell in love with it there and then - the only thing that stopped me buying it is I am waiting for a 0% credit card to come.

    One other point is they offer 2-years parts and labour warranty as standard.

    Thanks

    Well the new style one is only £1149 from the Apple Store online, so its not a great discount...

    I saw them in the online refurb store for £999 last week.

    It's not unreasonable. I'd check the Apple Store refurbished prices as well (a 20" refurbished iMac, old model, is £749, £50 less than then new model, and this 24" iMac is £100 less than the new model. They don't have a 24" right now). Not cheap, but about right.

    Just decide which models looks better with your furniture :D
