Hi Team

 

The Mrs wanted to try out an Mac, but has chosen to go back to a PC after giving OSX a good try, so we now have a 27" iMac that needs a new home.  Cosmetically the machine is in excellent condition and comes with the original Apple power cord.

 

Specs:
- 27" Display (2560x1440 resolution)
- Intel Core i3 3.2GHz Processor
- 16Gb RAM *
- ATI Radeon HD 5670 512Mb Graphics
- 120Gb + 1Tb Fusion Drive (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fusion_Drive) **
- Apple SuperDrive (internal)
- Apple Wireless Keyboard + Apple USB Keyboard (with number pad) ***

 

The machine operates flawlessly with no known faults.  We've had it for over 6 months and have not had any issues or crashes.

 

* I don't know whether the RAM is all genuine Apple or mixed with 3rd party, but we have had zero reliability issues and the RAM has been in the machine for years.

 

** The Fusion Drive is one I retrofitted to the machine using the following kit https://eshop.macsales.com/search/IM27SSD10 and it improved the performance of the machine beautifully.  The drive and installation kit cost me approximately $400.  The drive is under warranty in NZ until 2017.

 

*** After setting up the new computer for the Mrs I had this on the dining room table to move data between the computers, and one of my delightful offspring spilt a bit of water around the space bar of the Apple Wireless Keyboard, so this is current drying out in our hot water cupboard.  If it is faulty, I'll replace it.  The USB Keyboard with the number pad was purchased from Apple 6 months ago but a couple of weeks ago a couple of keys stopped responding (so I pulled the bluetooth keyboard out of storage), so I need to make a warranty claim to have this replaced and will do so promptly (or give the new owner the details so they can do this if they prefer).

 

The machine is located in west Auckland.  I can arrange delivery around Auckland for a small fee, and possibly get the machine as far north as Whangarei or as far south as Hamilton in the next months.  I really don't want to ship it as if anything was damaged the courier company would just say it was not packaged well enough, plus the courier would likely be in the ridiculous $60-$100 region (based on previous experience shipping computers).

 

Similar machines have sold on TM for $900 (same CPU, less RAM, spinning drive) and $800 (same CPU, less RAM, cracked glass, spinning drive).

 

I'm not sure what a reasonable asking price is, so I'm open to offers via PM.

Any oddities in the image are due to the camera, not the iMac display.

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.
