I have $200 worth of gift cards to Best Buy and it is a tax free weekend in my state, plus I can get 18 months no interest. I went to look at the 24" iMac 2.93ghz iMac tonight. It would be $1599 after my gift cards. When I was there, the sales guy found an older "open box" 2.8 ghz for $1000 after my gift cards. I thought that sounded like a great deal, but I was worried about the warranty on an "open box" iMac. I called two Apple stores and both hesitantly said, " uhhhhh, yea, you can buy Apple care on that" Not sure I believe that. What would you guys do?
