    20" white 2.16 GHz @ USD $1250, new: http://www.amazon.com/Apple-MA759LL...3?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1195348300&sr=8-3

    24" white 2.16 GHz @ USD $1500, new: http://www.smalldog.com/product/41261

    Depends on the price, of course. Refurbs are always risky business. Someone sent it
    back -- maybe because it was a lemon, maybe not. Maybe Apple's refurb depot fixed
    the problem (if any), maybe not. Unless there's a LARGE discount, I avoid 'em.

    Before buying, make sure you know whether Leopard and/or iLife 08' are included.

    ...YMMV,

    I just received my refurb 17" Core 2 Duo iMac today. I can't open it until Christmas, but many people solely purchase refurbs. You can get alot of Mac for a much better price. Hopefully mine will be perfect out of the box. I'm sure it will, but if it isn't, thats what AppleCare is for.

    BTW this is what I got:
    17" White iMac
    2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    1GB memory
    160GB hard drive
    8x SuperDrive
    ATI Radeon X1600 with 128MB memory
    Built-in iSight

    $849 from Apple refurb site. It isn't up there currently, but it comes up every once in awhile.

    I've seen a lot of brand new macs DOA (imac G4, powermac G4, powerbook G4, and I think I'm forgetting some). IMO refurbs are no more risky. People just don't like the thought of getting something used.

    Yep, me too. Great service -- shipped within 2-3 hours of placing the order.

    ...and they even have PEOPLE answer the phone,

    I am fine with buying refurbs from Apple but I won't trust other places.

    Yeah i'm a huge fan of Lexus. Great cars. Excellent quality. More than just your everyday Toyota. I would know, i gotta Camry. As for the iMac, I might open it up and check it to make sure everything is ok.
