    I am searching for a iMac for my gramma, she has a desktop pc but it died and she wants to buy a mac as all her grandchild have switched over.

    She is getting old so she wants a larger screen 20 or 24 in.

    All she does is play a few of low level games on pogo.com, msn messanger family and friends, a little uploading pictures, and surfing the internet


    I dont think she needs the newest iMac released this week but possibly a old or refurnbished model.

    Can anyone fill me in on a good deal or suggest were to look.

    thanks alot

    Have you checked Apple's online refurb store?

    Scroll towards the bottom of the Apple Store website and you'll see it on the left.

    Be aware that MSN in Mac sucks, if she does video conferencing she may better run it under boot camp or any of the virtualization programs out there or better use skype to connect with the rest of the world.

    Well if she connect mainly with her grandkids via iChat not worries at all.

    Without benefit of the Education or Developer discounts, eBay is the only place with better deals than the refurb store.
