I'll be buying an imac in a few days. I already have a macbook which I bought refurbished and I was happy with it. My questions: 1) Do refurbished imacs have the same standard quality of refurbished apple laptops? 2) When is the refurbished section updated each week? I think it used to be tuesday, thursday, and Saturday (at least here in Canada). Is it still the same? 3) I bought applecare with my macbook. I also bought additional warranty with my previous laptops. Would never go without it for a laptop. But it's been such a long time since I had a desktop, and the one I had was custom built from a China town store (which means cheap + no warranty). Should I get applecare for my imac? Is it necessary? Are desktop (i.e. imac) HDDs and the imac screen prone to the same failures as laptop HDDs and screens? Thanks.
