I promise that this will be my final thread on this issue so bear with me. Here's the deal: I finally have enough money this week to purchase the Refurbished 24" 3.06GHz iMac. This item costs $1899 plus tax so it comes to about $2012 for me. I will purchase it this week unless someone can give me any reason to do otherwise. The only reason I can come up with to wait is because October 14th (the rumored date for Macbook updates) might hold some kind of update for the iMacs. I could wait so that I'm within the 14 days before October 14th, just in case, you know? Any ideas? Should I just buy now? Is there any possibility of prices going lower when the (rumored) Macbook prices are lowered? Would Apple lower the prices of their desktops along with their laptops or just lower the pirces of their laptops? Any input is much appreciated.
