    Does anyone know if the refurbs of the last generation iMacs (the 2.8 24" specifically) come with an apple remote? They did when new, correct? What about the old keyboards?

    This may tip my decision one way or another whether to go current gen or last.

    In general, any iMac that came with a remote comes with a refurbished iMac as well or at least they should. New = Refurbished just with minor repairs/fixes.

    I thought that Apple stopped including remotes with new computers a year ago.

    Someone in the Marketplace forum is selling remotes for $10 a piece.

    I don't know the timeline (only the generation) and the latest generation does not include the remote (pretty sure they had it for the last generation and only stopped now). So if OP is looking to buy the previous generation iMac, the remote should be included.

    The iMac that was only just rendered obsolete a couple months ago (the one with just minor speed bumps from April 08) still including the remote - I got one with my brand new iMac that I purchased in June 2008.

    Sure he can, he's a 6502 with over 350 posts, you only need 250 to access the Marketplace.

    Maybe it was the MB/MBPs. I'm not sure now:confused:

    @flopticalcube- Don't you have to be a 6052a?

    The OP has been a member since 2004. So he doesn't have to worry about that. I just could have sworn that you need to be a 6052a to access the Marketplace.

    *duh, I just saw your LOL. I really need to go to bed

    damn it, I fail. But you do need a minimum of 6 months/180 days. (That sucks, I have at least 6 months worth of replies though! LET ME IN!)

    I received my refurb Imac 24" 2.8ghz one month ago

    and yes it came with a remote... it says on the refurbished info link that machines will come with everything they originally came with..

    Including a remote.
