    So I was planning on buying a 27in iMac that was just released and tried talking myself down to the 21in model to save myself $500 since I liked the extra screen size but didn't think, for me, it was worth the extra money.

    But I just checked the refurb store and after tax got a previous gen 27in 3.2ghz i3 iMac for $1,350. Not bad at all.

    I only web browse and use iTunes mostly so I don't need any crazy video or processing power.

    One question though, anyone know if refurbs follow the same one year window to purchase AppleCare?

    My understanding is that is the case (exact same policy as new iMacs).

    Yes, it's like buying a brand new computer. I've bought a couple refurbs in the past, and they were perfect. But, if for some reason yours isn't, it's covered like any brand new computer for a year. And you can also buy an applecare extension for it as well as if it was a new computer.

    So congrats on your purchase and enjoy it :D
