Looks like a 2017 model. Did they find them in the back of one of their warehouses? Smilie

For a very old model, particularly the CPU - a dual core i5 in 2022 is really a Celeron CPU. Even the desktop i3 models have 4 core/8 threads nowadays (i3-10100 for example).

Does anyone know if you buy an Imac with the Costco Visa if the warranty is doubled from (2) years to (4) years?

I read some chatter online that the Costco citi visa no longer provides extended warranty protection but there seems to be some question about that.

I haven't been paying much attention to iMacs for a few years now, but this through me way off. The specs seem so under powered, even for an iMac. I checked Best Buy and the same model is $1099. I'm tempted for another home computer since all we have is laptops and chrome books.

Edit: it was a different model. I'm back to being confused by this iMac

This is only for someone who wants basic browsing and wants to show off that they have a Mac. Maybe even a school computer for kids/teens. Almost Decent deal for it, however there are laptops at this price range with far better specs.

I use a 2013 mac for everyday use at work. They hold their value well.
