    If you read my last post maybe a week or 2 ago. I have happy chosen an iMac, but my next problem. I'm not sure which year to get, a new one is completely out of the question. Since I need to get a new iPhone this year, and other things... Now the questions

    -Which year should I get? The latest I can find, Im hoping to take this to 10.9 or 10.10. I'm willing to go Power over screen size.

    -Where can I find Older iMacs (2007-2009), I'm a little worried about ebay. Does Macmall sell any?

    (Im looking to spend 600-800$)
    Thanks Guys.

    The Refurbished Mac section in the Apple Online Store could help getting good and working machines, even with a warranty. You might get a 2009 iMac (21.5") for your budget there.
    But know, that any C2D Mac might not get approved for 10.9 or 10.10.

    eBay is littered with old Macs. You can also try your lucky buying used from Amazon too. The return policy may cost you a bit but it may also provide you a way out if you need one.

    There are also some Mac stores that sell their own refurbs and/or used computers, like megamacs.

    I'm actually planning to sell my 2007 as soon as I can buy a 2012. ;-)
