    I really need help here and fast.


    I bought an iMac from ebay last night(Sunday night) I paid minutes after the auction.

    Well here's the specs for the one I bought:
    New iMac 24-inch 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    1GB memory
    320GB hard drive
    Comes with Apple Care and a 7 day return policy
    $1,617 (already paid for)


    Should I get a refund and purchase this refurbished one from Apples website?

    Refurbished iMac 24-inch 2.8GHz Intel Core 2 Extreme
    2GB memory
    500GB hard drive
    $1,734 with taxes



    Hardest decision of my list seems like! Help!

    Personally I'd get the refurb. Your getting an extreme core duo in the refurb. in the one on ebay, it doesn't have an extreme. And for only 100 dollars more! Jeeze its a steal.

    Thanks for your reply!

    I just wanted to let you know I did go with the one on Apples website. The refund from Ebay is being settled.

    Thanks for help and advice!

    Good choice, the 2.8 refurb is much more powerful then the 2.4.
