Reviewer: DizzyEagle-2605
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.

Response from OWC, Support August 5, 2022 Dear DizzyEagle-2605, Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a detailed 5-star review. We are happy to hear that all of your questions were answered by our representative, and you were given multiple options to choose from in regards to selecting a refurbished machine. Thanks again for the Awesome review, we really appreciate the feedback. Enjoy the iMAC :)

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.

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.
