    Yep, a week after I ordered my 680 refurb, the 780 refurb is now available, of course. Was thinking not until February!

    I didn't think it would be this soon either. Hrm. To order now or wait until Feb like I was thinking I'd have to (and therefore was planning around).

    I'm not at all surprised... I have already returned two new machines - third one to be delivered today! I reckon the refurbs are probably better as they have had faults diagnosed, parts replaced and quality control inspected more than the new machines.

    Also, with the savings I can get the system I want instead of the one I can justify in terms of needs. The i7/780M/3TB Fusion refurbished costs less than the i5/780M/1TB Fusion new.

    Nothing in the UK refurb store and no 21" iMacs yet unfortunately - though there haven't been many of the 21" 2012 models in the UK recently anyway.

    Looks like I may just go for a new one while I can take advantage of the interest free credit offer. Also, annoyingly, you only get a mouse with the refurbs and can't swap for a trackpad.

    Now I need to decide whether or not to upgrade both processor and RAM, just the RAM or nothing.

    Totally ordering a i7/780M model now.. That's like $400+ in savings!

    Apparently they all got snatched up.. Went to order and it's no longer on the site. I picked up a brand new one (with student discount) in store.. I didn't realize/think Apple actually sold the "Ultimate" iMac in store. I don't know if thats considered ultimate but best CPU, best GPU and 3TB Fusion drive is pretty close.
