    I am in the market for a new iMac but I will not have the money for about 2 weeks. I have been window shopping on apples website and there was a refurb that I really liked. I had decided on this model. But yesterday the model was no longer on the site. I was just wondering how often do they come and go on the site. I was looking at the high end 27" with the i7 processor 1gb video ram 1tb HD and 4gb ram if that matters.
    Thanks in advance

    They come and go as they become available / as they get sold. There's no regular cycle.

    The really popular stuff (e.g. base Macbook/Macbook Pro/Mac Mini) can be gone within hours or even minutes! Less popular items like Mac Mini Servers
    can hang around for weeks.
    There is always new stuff appearing but at irregular intervals so I think the basic rule is: if you want it, and you can afford it, and it shows up - don't hang around, just get it!!
