    I Like This Discount. But The Computers Are Very Expensive.

      They are pricey that is for sure. If you have the extra cash though they hold their resale value extremely well and to generalize do tend to me for the most part for stable (at least compared to Win OS's pre Win7.) And for people for fear of viruses they offer an OS which viruses are extremely rare and are not effected by Windows specific viruses. (Argue the market share is so small as a reason for this if you will. However Its still true no matter the reason for it)

      Additionally offer consumer reports rated #1 Customer service and #1 rated technical support for computer companies.

    If this worked with an iPad purchase, then that would be uber-awesome. Sad

    Still its a nice bonus if your a professional educator, and more or less forced to use an Apple product.

      Feel sorry for the Apple workers who get to explain to 1/4 of the people that its only on iPods and not iPhones or iPads.

      Plus when the new iPhone 4G or whatever they want to call it, there will be a whole new batch of em coming out of the woodwork.

    I took the plunge and got the refurb Core i5 iMac today. (Apple refurbs are just like new.) It was like the same price for the refurb and iPod, and the new one with rebate. (which I was qualified for) I am really excited, and it is suppose to come between the 2nd and 5th.

    Refurbs are great value. Fully tested and certified by Apple techs, will look and work just like brand new, and have the full warranty of a new Mac plus you can still add AppleCare!

    The only drawback is that they can not be CTO'd.

      It is almost impossible to replace any parts in the iMacs, but I plan on upgrading the RAM to 8GB later this year.

      Upgrading RAM is very simple. And its the only part considered user serviceable on your iMac. Mr Green
