Will the old iMac still be available as a refurb after the new iMac is released or do apple usually then stop selling the older model once a replacement is launched?

releasing the new macbook and macbook pro models didn't stop apple from selling the older models on the refurb store. new imacs shouldn't stop apple from selling older models on the store either.

Whenever Apple releases some new model, they try their best to sell all of the old model that they can, but whatever isn't sold at the time of release of the new model will go to the refurbished store. Usually with a bit of delay, because you want some computers around to replace those that were bought and dead on arrival, but after a few weeks you usually get old models as refurbished - they might actually be brand new.
