    Newegg has some refurbished ones. They are today's "shell shocker" deal @ $109.

    Details are sparse as they just reuse the original copy, "the fastest iMac ever". No idea what speed the processor is. If it could be upgraded to 2 GB, I'd consider getting on to run at least Lion.

    Strange... here's the product link:


    But the strange part is that it says that the graphics card is the Geforce 7300GT - to my knowledge (and a search of everymac.com specs), no 17" iMac came with that card; that's the card from the 24" of that era, right?

    My guess is that it'll be a 1.83GHz C2D and integrated graphics - off-lease education models.

    Still, a great price for a pretty capable machine. :)

    Damn. A bit of a dinosaur by today's standards but still not a bad deal. Looking to get my folks into using OSX and this might be the perfect practice machine. They're always against it "because it's so expensive" so I might have to send this their way. At least it'll get 'em used to the OS and less scared to move away from dreaded Windows. Ugh.
