too bad the $300 off deal doesn't apply if you use the config option. e.g. config / upgrade to 16GB RAM for "2.3 GHz Intel Core i5, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD " $1,149.99 model.

Serious questions:

I just bought at Best Buy less than a week ago the base configuration 2017 21 inch Retina iMac. It comes with 1TB Hard Drive (not Fusion) w/ 8GB of Ram and was wondering if I still had time to go in and exchange it for the one listed on sale here for $999?

As much as I love the peripheral ports on the back, the hard drive is embarrassingly slow and could use something more portable. As mentioned, I’ve used it for less than a week.

Edit: Also, is this deal only applicable online? Cause I’m ready to box up this iMac I have and go to my nearest Best Buy. Again, I love the size of the 21 inch retina iMac but it’s rather slow and have always preferred a trackpad over the Magic Mouse, though admittedly I did enjoy using it this past week.

I still don’t think psychologically I could ever stop worrying about the keyboard. Even if those fears are exaggerated in my mind (and I know lots of people post they don’t have any issues).

They will get issues, WAIT
your Brain seems in normal condition, no one buying this stuff is operating sane — it’s madness buying a product where dust kills it.

Düst is everywhere and will get All this keyboards.
I wonder that apple is psycho enough still selling it

What a great deal!! With a four-year warranty on the keyboard, what's not to like? This is definitely a better value than the new 2018 Air.

I just can’t get over the premium Apple puts on storage that cannot be upgraded. Even 256 GB base is questionably small. Wish Apple would do some good engineering and use standard NVMe blades.

The hard drive is extremely slow, even with the Fusion option. Thought I would be fine as I could not afford the SSD price apple charges to upgrade. If you don't need Boot Camp, buy an external TB3 SSD and use it as a boot disk. Makes all the world of difference and I love my iMac now. It is almost as fast as an internal SSD.
