Apple's iMac is beautifully designed and packs all its power behind the display so you don't have an eyesore of a tower sitting beside your screen or taking up space under your desk. They can get pretty pricey direct at Apple, which is why when a sale on refurbished models rolls around you really want to pay attention. This one-day sale at Woot offers iMacs in both 21.5- and 27-inch sizes with varying configurations and prices starting at just $490. They have all been reconditioned by iRecertify and come with a 90-day warranty. If you don't need the cutting edge models Apple offers, these refurbs are worth considering.

From $490

The deal given is no longer valid and we do not have a better one. However, we have found some similar deals

The most affordable option in the sale is the 21.5-inch iMac from late-2013. It has a respectable Intel Core i5 quad-core 2.7GHz processor, 8GB RAM, and 1TB hard drive. It's more than enough power for day-to-day computing needs. A few updated models with similar specs from late-2015 run around $600 in the sale if you want something newer. For fans of the larger screen, check out the last remaining 27-inch model in the sale. At $850, the late-2013 machine packs a punch with an Intel Core i7 quad-core 3.5GHz processor, 8GB RAM, and 3TB Fusion Drive. While it's hard to compare directly to the current iMac as components have been upgraded over time, a similarly configured machine would cost in excess of $2,000 in new condition today.

I sit in front of an iMac every day, and it is the best computer I've ever owned. It runs super smoothly, the fans never spin up, and it looks great in my office (which is what we all want an iMac for really, let's face it).
