    Which refurb IMAC model is the better bang for the buck maching if I am not too concerned with graphics.. I am assuming the earlier model I7 is correct?

    With the i5 you get faster ram and better graphics. The i7 you get a better processor. I would say it depends on what you are going to use it for. If you do gaming I would get the i5.

    I wont see too much of a difference in speed due to the slower memory correct?
