    Looks like only the i5 version from what I can see, FYI.

    Only comes out about $50 cheaper than the brand new i5 5K iMac that stores were offering back in November.

    Depends on the store. I can get an i5 with 512 ssd, 290 gpu for $2790 or i7 with 512 ssd, 290 gpu for $3000.

    Now were these all the units returned where people had an issue with light bleed, so apple just put them back up for sale as refurb?? I would be very curious if the units returned for visual problems with the display would get fixed or if they are rudimentily checked and shipped back out again?

    I had a unit that had screen issues in when hooked up with 2 displays, it would after 5-10 minutes, black out both screens and dump into sleep mode. This only happens with 2 monitors hooked up though. I also found that the icamera was out of focus but didn't really mention that to support. I'd be curious to what level of checks apple will do before putting the unit back out as a refurb.

    I see several i7 models listed on Apple's website, however not a single M295X GPU to be seen.

    I will admit, that I looked and saw that they had an i7 with a 512ssd and 16gb ram for less than my standing order, and figured that getting 512ssd vs a 256 and paying $9 less in the process was a worth while deal.

    The only down side to this was that I am now going to have to wait and extra 5 more days for it to show up. But I am sure that I will be more than happy with the better unit 5 days later considering the cost savings.

    *edit -- looked it up and even with my eep discout, I ended up saving $320 off ordering it new, and the nice person at apple canada threw in a trackpad for me as that was what I had originally ordered before.

    The M295X saga continues... something isn't right.

    I do agree. First thing I noticed was the very apparent lack of any M295x models.
