    Hi, I really am naive about iMacs but really want one. I have a friend willing to sell one to me for 330$ the specs are: Apple IMac 21" core2duo 3.4ghz, 4gb, 500gb wireless keyboard and mouse
    Sierra os, photoshop, office. It's fully functional and is running the newest os but memory can be upgraded. I'm am a junior in high school so will really only use for homework assignments, YouTube, internet browsing and my GoPro. Is it a good deal?

    Is it this one? The one I linked is 3.33 GHz. I don't think there is a 3.4 GHz Core 2 Duo.

    If so, then it is an OK deal IMO. The hard drive will be slow, but everything else is fine. You just need to upgrade the RAM to 8 GB. That won't be a problem because it comes with 2 x 2 GB and has 2 slots free, so you can buy 2 x 2 GB more for a total of 8 GB. That would cost you $46.*33ghz-intel-core-2-duo-(21*5-inch---ddr3)-late-2009

    There is an i7 3.4GHz from 2011 and 3.4GHz 5 from 2013, but they are both 27" models.

    They also aren't Core 2 Duo.

    P.S. There is also a 3.4 GHz i5 from 2017 too. :D
