21" or 27" Description says:

The 21.5-inch iMac boasts even greater resolution of 1920 x 1080. That's a whopping 78 percent more pixels. And more pixels mean images look crisp and true to life. The iMac display looks great from any seat in the house, thanks to a premium display technology called in-plane switching (IPS). IPS gives you a bright picture with excellent color - even if you're viewing the display from the side.

This computer was originally sold by Apple between July 27, 2010 and May 3, 2011.

Not implying it's a bad deal, just stating that it's a bit aged.

This is a 2010 model, max 16GB of memory. If you have the skill (and the guts) it can be opened (check iFixit), and the hard drive (or DVD drive) swapped out for an SSD. Performance isn't terrible for everyday tasks, even considering the age. And once it gets too old to use as a computer, you can still use it as a Mini Displayport monitor [apple.com]. They do put out a lot of heat, though - I believe power consumption can top 300 watts. This is something you don't normally notice when your computer is under your desk.

Here's some more info [everymac.com].

ETA: everything except the first line of the description indicates that this is the 27" model. They probably copied the description from a different listing.

In for one. My C2D plastic 20" iMac is a little slow lately, so this should be a good upgrade. It'll mostly be used for surfing the net and hosting my iTunes library (with an external HD), so I doubt I need much more hardware.

Thanks, OP, TU and Repped.

Problem if the display is aging. I have friend's Imac 27 Retina display died and fixing it is around the price of this Imac. Mac is nice to use by suck to fix. Sorta driving a Mercedes Benz after 5 years.

The retina hasn't been around very long unless he bought one day one. And they were so expensive, it'd be silly to buy one without apple care. Is he out of warranty?

I don't think this can be used as monitor as it doesn't have thunderbolt port.

I don't look at it that way. I went from a 20" to a 27" monitor, a bigger HD, dedicated GPU, faster processor, and potentially more RAM.

While it is a bit old, as computers go, it serves my purpose pretty well. There are better bargains in computers, but I was specifically looking for an iMac with a bigger display and the unibody chassis...I don't see too many 27" at this price that aren't C2D (which aren't much cheaper) or considerably more expensive (for a newer i5 or i7). This hits the sweet spot between price and hardware requirements for me (hosting iTunes, web surfing while I drink coffee in the morning, and the occasional movie or video conversion), YMMV.
