Refurbished 27in iMacs (2011):
Again tonight (Feb 25th), Apple's Refurbished 27in iMacs page had the same three 27in iMac models listed, including the 3.4GHz Core i7/1GB 6970M model that quickly sold out yesterday. As of Noon Tuesday (Feb 26th), the Core i7 model was sold out again. Later only the Core i5 was left, just like Sunday. It appears for the last several days they've repeatedly offered/listed those three configurations. They must have some leftover stock. (I've been posting FYIs on these refurbs recently as some readers wanted the more upgradeable 2011 vs the new late 2012 model. I like the looks of the new iMac, but if I had the spare funds right now, I'd be tempted on the Core i7 2011 model w/1GB vram option since you can have up to 3 internal drives, including standard SSDs.)
