    I know Apple fixes their prices, so nothing really goes on sale, but does anyone know where to get deals on iMac's in the city? Open box or whatever? Iscraigslist a good idea?

    Thanks

    Keep an eye out for surplus sales from Universities or whatever (places relatively reputable); it's a long shot but it doesn't hurt

    I go to the University of Waterloo and every 2-3 weeks our stores department has a clearout of all their old furniture and isht.

    People always lining up 45 minutes a head of time to be the first to get any laptops/desktops available ([​IMG] resellers)

    I've seen iMacs (some real old, some only one/two generations old) for about 2-300. highest price I've seen was klike ...500

    I got a Powerbook G4 for less than a hundred (torn AC Adapter, but whatever) because the people couldn't figure out how to turn it on

    I know that's not that much help but just keep your eyes open...

    Thanks, I'm probably just going to bite the bullet and get a new one.

    i heard refurbed macs are still in really good condition...there was a report that on average, refurbed macs have only gone through 3 - 5 battery life cycles.so its still pretty new. and u can buy apple care for them anyway

    Nice...I did not know that. Is the apple care plan worth it?

    With refurbished macs you get the same one year warranty as buying a new one

    I see. But is it worth buying the extended plan? I never do it with other electronics (except my plasma).

    I've heard nothing but good things about applecare - really I think it'll be "worth it" or "not worth it" only if you have to useit. But I know that people who DO have it and HAVE had to get soemthing replaced have been very satisfied.

    I believe you have up to one year to decide to buy applecare
