    Hi everybody I'm new to the forums and hope this is going in the right place. I haven't had a mac in a few years and was looking to buy a new system at the beginning of next year, but my college sent me a deal on a imacs from the school bookstore and it doesn't look like I can pass it up. Here's the deal:

    Model MB322LL/A:
    iMac 24”, 2.8GHz, 2GB, 500GB, SuperDrive, 256VRAM

    $1318 with Applecare.

    Being a student it's also good for an ipod rebate.
    I know its an older model, but for the price is it a good idea or should I wait? Thanks for your help. -Jed

    i think it is a good deal a refirb at apple is 1549 w/out apple care. this to me just proves that apple will update imac soon. for a college student that model will do fine.

    Agreed. That's a great deal for that computer, and you can always stick some more RAM in it if need be.

    That is a great deal. I picked up a similar deal with the iPod promo.

    The only thing I did with my iMac was pick up 4 GB of RAM for cheap and do the 5 minute upgrade.

    The iMac flies compared to my 1.66 mini with 2GB of RAM.
