When it comes time to work, there’s nothing like the clean lines of a classic iMac to get you motivated. Over the years, this sleek desktop has embodied all the best qualities of a Mac, both inside and out.
And what are those qualities? For starters, there’s the reliability of the solid-state drives, and the consistent speed of those Intel processors. While there have been significant design tweaks, you could argue that things haven’t fundamentally changed for the iMac since the 2012 updates – and for once in tech, that’s a good thing.
The bottom line, iMacs have been reliable for at least the last decade, and that’s really good news if you’re looking to add some functionality to your home office this year. This year’s gear may look great when you’re uploading that unboxing video, but if you want a budget desktop that really performs, there’s nothing like the classic iMac.
If you’re looking to jump on that train, refurbished models are always a solid bet. These computers are used but inspected and brought back up to speed at the factory, so you can be sure that you’re getting the same guarantee you would at most retail stores. Best of all, you’re getting those iMacs at hundreds of dollars off their original retail price.
Where do you find them? Right here, for starters. We’ve rounded up five great refurbished deals from the greatest generation of iMacs, all ready to spruce up your home office – and all at steep discounts off the retail price.
