A huge waste of money as I cannot use the computer due to a lock out!
3 weeks ago
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.
Hate this product and will never buy another one!!!!

Summary: I purchased the Apple iMac desk top to replace my HP that was in need of a new hard drive. The price for each was about the same.A friend told me I couldn't go wrong with an "Apple." I actually like nothing about this computer. The fan noise is so loud that it gives me a headache, it is very slow, and I can not play on games like Farmville on Facebook.....because it has no flash drive.
Summary: We are a small not-for-profit organization that purchased TWO imacs from Wegener this year. BOTH screens died within a matter of months and the company refused to replace them! After months of unreturned emails they blamed us for not returning the computers. This company is a scam! They are dealing computers that are in poor shape and are going to fail. Do not give them your business!
Excerpt: I have had the opportunity to work with many different types of computers and the imac that I am currently forced to work on is by far the most frustrating piece of technology I have ever encountered. it is the equivalent of the village idiot. If you try to do more then 2 things at once, it's going to get confused and stay confused. I would say that 85% of the time that I spend on the hunk of junk is watching the little colored rainbow spin around and around.
Excerpt: This product is one of the worst computers available. First of all, the price is ridiculous for the specifications of the computer. I would not recommend buying a mac computer unless you have a lot of money and you don't care about quality but of what the computer looks like. There is no tower for the computer which is nice, but it doesn't make up for the fact that it's a hunk of poop that doesn't deserve to be on da market. Essentially, this computer is for morons.
