    Comes down to whether you prefer the new look or the old.

    If it is from the Apple refurb store with the full 1 year warranty (and the ability to buy 2 more years Applecare if you want), yes.

    If it has any less than full warranty, no.

    Yeah, it offers the warranty.

    - Quality products/great prices
    - Stringent refurbishment process prior to sale
    - Covered by Apple's One-Year Limited Warranty
    - AppleCare Protection Plan can be purchased
    - Supplies are limited

    The screen on the white iMac 20 inch should be better than the lower quality 20 inch screen in the new iMacs, right?
