Thinking of Buying a Used iMac

If I'm going to spend $480.00, I might as well double that and pick up a refurbished unit :)


Or maybe even go portable.

Thanks for the feedback. Unfortunately funds are limited but I want to utilize an Adobe suite that was given to me by my brother-in-law that he's no longer using. To that end, is the $480 a worthwhile price or should I go $400? That may allow me to upgrade memory possibly.

Well here's a better question, is the adobe suite compatible with that Mac? I hope it's not the old G5 versions of Adobe Suite you have and I most certainly hope the specs are compatible.

No it is for an Intel based mac. Problem is that I am not too familiar with them (the Intel based ones) so I want to feel out the Maccies here. :)

edit: CS6

Finance it, if you're into education you can also get about $200 discount depending where you live.

You won't have to buy anything to replace it with for the years to come.
