Aluminum iMac Refurbs $200 of retail! Dear Santa…



Now appearing on, aluminum refurbished iMacs. We’ve been tracking them, and they seem to go about 2 hours after each posting. Also, the stock of last gen white iMacs as refurbs have been dwindling.

This deal takes a cool $200 off a middle tiered aluminum iMac, usually equipped with a 320GB HD, and the 2600HD Pro ATI GPU. Quite a steal, we think. Our current iMac may in fact find a home with the in-laws in favor for one of these bad boys this Christmas! Get those donations in to TheMNT! 😉

Store down, store down! What will come from now? Also, Stacks tweaks…

title_backsoon1.gif now down. What’s in store? Last time, a redesign was done to the Online Store featuring more Leopard like cues. Actual aluminum iMac refurbs now in stock? AppleHD? Just maintenance?


In other Mac news, a very useful Stacks tweak has been released. The site is now down due to heavy traffic. Here is the tweak on our Powerbook. Links to come when available. [ Digg article and original blog post]


[Update] Nothing much to report on the Apple site… looks like brand new, shiny maintenance for all!
