Curious what folks would recommend since these two are closely matched in price? I want to upgrade my iMac at work from a 2008 Core Duo and either purchase a 1.) NEW iMac 21.5-inch 2.5GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5 for $1,199.00 or, 2.) Refurbished iMac 21.5-inch 3.6GHz Intel Core i5 processor for $1,269.00 I have no qualms about buying a refurbished iMac since I own one at home and it runs great and shipped in excellent condition, and find I have yet to come close to storing more than 500 GB of storage for work files, and have plenty of external HD's to store files, videos, etc. I use iMovie, Aperture and MS Office for Mac, and run Parallels as well using primarily MS Publisher. Thanks for any feedback !
