Summary: I bought 2 of these 10.8 systems this year. One in March and one in May of 2014. I have some older equipment and I cannot use the new 10.9 system. So these were a great find. Nowhere else on the internet could I find a 10.8 system.
Summary: I had an excellent experience with my old Mac, but within a month of using this one I needed a new hard drive, mother board and memory. It was covered under Apple's warranty, but it took two weeks of working with Apple reps to get a green light to take it to a shop.
Excerpt: I have been Mac only for 10 years, so this is not buyer's remorse. I do quite a bit of photo editing and this is the slowest Mac I have ever bought. Not slowest processor, slowest machine. 8GB of RAM and 4 cores and I get the spinning beach ball when I open Safari!
Summary: Works fine right out of the box, picture is beautiful. However, Apple gives you no means to adjust the vertical height of the monitor, which is 21in high. Menu bars are at the top of the screen, I wear bifocals, and my neck hurts from positioning my head to see the top of the screen.
Summary: Thank you (Amazon) for taking the responsibility to resolve the issue that I have with the 27" Apple iMac which I personally think it should have been Apple's duty to fulfill. The truth is we ordered two of the same computer in the same household and both computer appeared to have the same issue...
Too Limited; too expensive, Beautiful hardware but not worth $3000

Summary: Ive been a long time Solaris/Linux/Windows user and thought I would try a Unix based machine for a change. I very much like the control that Unix gives the advanced user. However, Apple tries to lock you into a very limited use of Tinkering on your own machine! Very disappointed about that.
Summary: I can understand that when selling a newly used item, people are not supposed to loose a lot of money by doing so.... but come on where is the deal if you are selling this imac for a 100 dollars less than a new in a box one from Apple.... who would buy his item if only 100$ cheaper ...
Summary: I can understand that when selling a newly used item, people are not supposed to loose a lot of money by doing so.... but come on where is the deal if you are selling this imac for a couple of hundred dollars less than a new in a box one from Apple....
Summary: Having difficulty in accessing e-mail I went to Apple helpline and discovered in the conversation that this product is note as being sold last year in June I believe. This was a shock as it was not described as used in the sales description, merely that the packaging was damaged.
