It’s been a few months since Apple launched the brand new, much more colorful 24-inch iMac. And for folks who have been waiting until refurbished models start popping up on the market to make a purchase, the wait is over. Mostly. Stock isn’t quite as robust as one might like, but for folks in the United Kingdom there’s at least one option ready to buy now.
As first noted today by 9to5Mac, Apple is now selling the refurbished 24-inch iMac in the United Kingdom. At the time of publication there is only one configuration to choose from, which would be the 8-core CPU and 7-core GPU option. What’s more, there’s only one color option to choose right now. So as long as you’re ready to have a pink/pastel pink in your home, this new refurbished option may be perfect for you. According to Apple’s website, the company says if you order today it will be dispatched in eight business days.
And that comes with free delivery.
As far as what you get with this model, that would be 256GB of built-in storage, a 24-inch 4.5K display (with a resolution of 4480×2520 and 218 pixels per inch), and 8GB of unified memory. The 1080p HD FaceTime camera has been upgraded to offer a much better video calling experience. And, around back, there are two Thunderbolt/USB 4 ports.
What you get in the box is the 24-inch iMac, a Magic Mouse, and a Magic Keyboard. These are normally color-matched to the primary computer, but it’s worth noting here that this isn’t specifically mentioned on the landing page for the product. And even the included photos of the refurbished 24-inch iMac don’t offer a look at the included mouse and keyboard combo. So, if you do go with this option, maybe be prepared for not having color-matched accessories. Though, it’s likely this will still be the case.
As far as pricing is concerned, the refurbished model retails for £1,059.00, which marks a savings of £190.00 from the original £1,249.00.
The refurbished 24-inch iMac is only available in the United Kingdom as of right now, but hopefully that will change for other markets, including the United States, in the near future.
