Two years in with a 2015 5K iMac and everything is flawlessI am looking for your thoughts and success with iMac refurbished items?
Has anyone had less than successful experience with an iMac Rerfurb?
Did any of you use the extended iCare on your purchase and have you ever needed it?
I'm in Canada and it's also very sparse if you have an idea of what specs you want. I tracked the refurb store for a while for a base-ish 27" iMac with SSD. It seems that only the top-end are sold as refurb with SSD, the low-end have the 1-2TB FD... So in the end I'd end up paying much more for specs I don't need just to save a few bucks on what I do need.I've looked at the refurb section on the UK Apple store the last few weeks.
Very sparse I have to say when it comes to Macs.
I guess most are the base models that get returned and most people might consider upgrading a FD just for space and most simply don't understand the physical and speed differences between a spinning disk and full flash ssd cards. There is no real graphical information to show what's inside a standard iMac.I'm not sure if Apple makes modifications to the BTO before reselling them as refurb or if it's a very strong trend that low-end iMac are always bought with FD.

Oh man, you just jinxed yourself...probably will release one this summer!Got my iMac from the refurb store this week looks and runs like new.
I also purchased AppleCare +
I got tired of waiting for a new Mac mini.
