    Someone posted a used iMac near me a few days ago. I'm in the market waiting for the new one, but this deal seems really good. Is it too good to be true?

    Photos look good. No cosmetic issues apparent.

    Late 2011
    27" 2.7 GHz i5
    2 TB HD
    512 MB 6770m
    4 GB RAM
    Mountain Lion

    No keyboard or mouse included.

    $800 cash. Am I missing something?

    Assuming I have to drop $150 for a mouse/keyboard. I can spend $250 and upgrade the RAM and put a SSD in it. Then I have a pretty decked out machine for $1200.

    Great deal, I would jump on it, just make sure you test it out properly, I would run apple diagnostic software, geekbench and possibly a game..

    Trust me it's worth testing properly, I bought a Macbook Pro in August, even though it was mint condition, and it looked like it was working perfectly, a month later when I tried bootcamp there were artifacts, not to mention geekbench score was super low.. I got ripped off big time..

    Make sure it isn't a lemon that someone is trying to get rid of....

    Whenever the price is super low I'd be concerned about it being stolen. Why doesn't it have the keyboard and mouse?
