Rating: 5/5 iMac Quad-Core i5 July 6, 2017 I had a previous model of iMac and I wanted to upgrade to an i5. I found this one that was in excellent condition. I'm a major Mac fan and so I was so happy when it arrived with absolutely no marks on it at all. I buy parts and other stuff from MacSales quite ofter and always fine what I need. I also purchased an external 1TB external drive to use for my backup. I'm a happy computer user.
