Hey there guys! Well, here's the issue: I'll be buying the baseline iMac before the week is over. (I can't wait anymore...and I need it) The thing is, I can buy it from the local Apple authorized reseller or my usual computer store. BTW, I live in the Philippines. the Apple reseller sells the iMac ar Php60,990 , if I pay cash, Php60,000 ($1 = Php42.30...its about $200 more expensive compared to US prices, import tax and shipping crap) The other store sells it at the same price, but since I'm a loyal customer, the owner can give it to me at Php 58,000. (about a $50 difference, but that's already huge for me!). I've read several threads about refurb iMacs in the market, what I'm most concerned about is how do I figure out if the iMac I'm getting (from the other store) is brand new or a refurb? Would it be better if I purchase my iMac at the authorized reseller? Any input you guys and gals might have would be very much appreciated.
