Rating: 5/5 Jiji's Review August 5, 2022 My 10 year old iMac was rapidly fading and needed to be replaced and I first considered replacing it with a new one. However the architecture of my desk required a monitor no larger than about 21 inches and only 27 inch monitors are available now. My search for a suitable replacement was rewarded with the computer described above. My dealings with OWC were exemplary, their web site showed two or three computers that would meet my needs, my phone conversation with the knowledgeable woman I dealt with was pleasant and effective and resulted in my order. The computer arrived within a few days, it was well packed and after transferring the data from my old machine and using it for some time it does fit the description "mint condition". I am very pleased with my first venture into purchasing a refurbished computer.

I would recommend this item to a friend! This review is from Apple 21.5" iMac (2013) 2.7GHz Quad Core i5 - Used, Mint condition.

Reviewer: SoCalFamily
Rating: 5/5 Great Desktop for College June 17, 2021 "Mint Condition" iMac appears perfect. The 21.5 inch size will fit in any cramped dorm space, and i7 Quadcore and 16GB RAM can handle all tasks for a very affordable price that allows for having both a decent iMac in the dorm (to read the voluminous online materials in comfort) and a 13" MacBook Pro for the shorter class/study sessions away from the dorm.

I would recommend this item to a friend! This review is from Apple 21.5" iMac (2013) 3.1GHz Quad Core i7 - Used, Mint condition.

Response from OWC, Support June 17, 2021 Glad to hear you are satisfied with your purchase, please let us know if we can help you with anything else!

Rating: 5/5 maybe old - but not as old as my current iMac June 3, 2021 I needed a new computer for college and this fit all the requirements. Definitely worth getting the extra ram installed then I didn't have to **** with it. I did my own Mac OS X install from USB as I don't like "batch" drive software installs.

Rating: 5/5 Very Pleased. April 27, 2021 The computer is excellent. I'm of two minds about having to upgrade the OS after receiving it. Doing so was a nuisance but educational.

Rating: 5/5 iMac Like New August 6, 2019 This late 2013 iMac is like new. It looks and works great. I have wanted an iMac for a long time time but could not justify the cost of a new one. The 500GB SSD and 16GB of memory makes this a speedy machine. It was shipped and on my door in three days.

Perfect service and product. Thanks OWC.
