I've never ordered a refurbished computer from Apple, but I'm thinking about picking up one of these G5 iMacs for $899. I'm a little worried about dead pixels and cosmetic issue. I'm looking for testimonials on Apple refurbs.

Didn't see any more there for $899...but I DID see a 20" iMac for $1300. That is a heck of a deal!

Speaking of iMacs...I've really been thinking about 20" iMacs lately. My plan right now is to not buy any more Apples till the switch to Intel. However, I can see a scenero where I would pick up a refurbished one if the prices got low enough.

Why the hold out for Intel? Those boxes will, more than likely, be slower for the first year or two than the Macs with PowerPC processors. I would buy the PowerPC iMacs when the Intel ones come out because there will be a huge price drop and no one will wants the PowerPC ones, even though they will more than likely be faster than the newer ones. Remember, the G3 was slower than its predecessors when it first came out. (IIRC)

Why the hold out? Because I've only had the 4 Mac's currently in the house for a few months. The switch to Intel is less of something I'm waiting on and more of an excuse to buy when they come out.

Haha, that's not a bad reason for an upgrade. I'd say why wait for a reason, Macs are that unto themselves, but when any Mac is a decently sized investment, I can see why.
