    Hi guys, would an iMac with these specs be a good deal for me for $850?

    -White iMac
    -20" 1680x1050 Screen
    -Intel Core 2 Duo 2.16 GHZ
    -ATI Radeon X1600 128 MB
    -2 GB RAM
    -250 GB 7200 RPM HD
    -Applecare until February 2010

    I will most likely buy my own bluetooth mouse and keyboard so I can use the iMac from my bed. Would this be a good deal for me and the seller?

    Seems like a decent price to me. You should look around on ebay, craigslist, etc. to check on comparable systems as well.

    I don't really want to deal with any of the paypal or anything with ebay and I have dealt with this guy on MacRumors before so I was just wondering. Waiting for a response from him. :D

    I think its a pretty good deal, and at least it comes from someone you have dealt with before. On the other hand it maybe worth saving a bit more and getting a refurb from the online store.....

    Sorry, I was unclear. I meant check the asking and selling prices of comparable systems. This would give you a better idea if the price is a fair one.

    Thanks for all your help guys! It seems the price I can get cheaper for about 50 - 100 dollars, but I think buying from a guy I have dealt with before, etc. is worth a premium. :D

    If I did buy this iMac, would I have to do anything special to transfer the Applecare?
