If you’ve been hoping to get your hands on one of the most powerful and well-equipped Apple desktop computers available for a fraction of its original price, then today just might be your lucky day, but you’re going to have to act fast.
E-commerce giant, Amazon, is offering multiple brand-new and certified refurbished mid-2015 iMac computers with gorgeous 27-inch 5K Retina displays — at savings of up to $400+ off – only while inventory lasts.
While Apple refreshed its iMac family at 2017’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) bringing faster Intel processors and upgraded connectivity ports to its popular all-in-one desktop, the models being offered today are of the mid-2015 variety.
So they have been aging, but aging well. It’s worth noting that these machines are still powerhouses even by 2018 standards.
What You Can Get
First off, we have a Certified Refurbished 27-inch 5K iMac boasting a 3.2 GHz quad-core Intel Core i5, featuring Turbo Boost up to 3.6GHz, a 1TB (7200-rpm) hard drive and AMD’s Radeon R9 M380 graphics processor with 2GB of GDDR5 memory.
Amazon is currently saying that 16 of these models are left in stock — so you’d better act fast if you want one at a savings of up to $800, currently priced at only $1,199.49.
Another model being offered a big discount is Model No. MK472LL/A and boasts a 27-inch 5K Retina display, allowing the highest quality imaging and video reproduction of any Apple device.
You’ll also get an Intel Core i5 quad-core processor clocked at 3.2 GHz, coupled with 8GB of RAM, and a whopping 1 TB Fusion Drive for storing all your photos, videos, music and more. Topping it all off is an AMD Radeon R9 M390 graphics processor with 2GB of GDDR5 memory. The model, which originally retailed for $1,999, is currently advertised as “Discontinued by Manufacturer” and can be yours for just $1,579.79, representing a savings of $419.21.
There are currently other offerings of the same aforementioned model No. MK472LL/A, complete with an even larger 2 TB (2,000 GB) Fusion drive for extra storage space, ranging in prices starting at just $1,499 plus shipping & handling.
The only downside to these particular machines is that you’ll need to update the OS from OS X El Capitan to the latest version macOS, which is thankfully a free and easy proposition.
All in all, these offers provide fantastic opportunities for those who’ve been on the fence about buying into an Apple flagship computer simply due to their premium, high-cost nature.
