Recent Windows XP user making the switch. I plan on getting the refurbished 24" iMac for $1299. So far I've heard nothing but great things. I was just curious how does the warranty work for refurbished items and if i'm still able to get applecare for it later on by any chance? Also do you recommend any time of software? I have a list of what I'm importing over as far as files. I wanted to wait for the 'new' 24" imacs but am afraid the $1299 ones will soon be gone and be SOL, so honestly I figure I'd grab them while they're still here. Thx!!!
