A huge waste of money as I cannot use the computer due to a lock out!
1 April 2014
Summary: Don't ever buy a used Mac without knowing if the computer is tied to a preexisting i cloud account. This is a nightmare! I bought the mac and it was great while it lasted. Then I updated the software to Mavericks. It was then that I became locked out of my Mac. The seller refuses to assist me locate the previous owner. So I am stuck with a big expensive paper weight. This is known as an EFI password and there is very little help from anyone including Apple.
Summary: Beware before buying!!! I bought this product 6 months ago. It was packaged well and looked great but after hooking it up it completely crashed. I was pleased how they brought it back and fixed it. We had to wait a few weeks to use it but once we had it back it worked great for the last few months. A week ago it broke again and after talking to the seller (who helped me troubleshoot it) realized it would almost be as much to fix it as it was to buy it!
Nice basic, compact iMac; great for a student, light busiiness work.

Summary: The 17" iMac performed unsatisfactorily; it would not operate for more than 10 or 20 minutes without "freezing"/"hanging up"; I performed all the actions/tests the seller requested; to no avail. It had 4 gigabytes of RAM installed; after checking with Apple, it was clear the computer was designed for 3 gig, maximum (there can be memory "overlap" with 4 gig). I removed the 3rd party RAM, installed 2 gig, initialized the hard drive, installed a new OS.
