Deals on iMacs, refurbs
In light of Apple's updates to the iMac line, MacMall is running a few specials on current and late model iMacs, both the 20- and 24-inch versions. MacMall is also bundling Parallels Desktop 3.0 with the purchase of any iMac, as well as a free Epson printer, and from $50 to $100 off the machine, after mail-in rebates. The online retailer is offering discounts on the newly released iMacs, from $1150 on the entry-model, to $2100 for the high-end 3.06GHz version – $50 to $100 off Apple's suggested retail price. The 24-inch iMac comes with a 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 1GB of memory, a 320GB hard drive, Superdrive and an ATI Radeon 2600 Pro. MacMall is selling the 24-inch iMac for $1500 after rebates and aforementioned specials.
MacMall is also selling the 20-inch version with similar promotions, except with the CPU discount being $50. The unit is powered by an Intel Core 2 Duo at 2.0GHz, with 1GB of memory, a 250GB hard drive, Superdrive, and a Radeon 2400XT. Price after rebates sits at $1050.
The update to the iMac line also dropped pricing slightly for Apple's refurbished machines, with the plastic iMac Core 2 Duo-based 20- and 24-inch models each receiving a discount. The 20-inch models – featuring a 2.16GHz processor, a 250GB hard drive, 1GB of memory and an ATI Radeon X1600 – are available for $950, while the 24-inch version with an Nvidia 7300GT graphics card sells for $1200.
