A high-end 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display is in the refurb store this week. I think this is the first time I’ve seen the 5K iMac with the AMD Radeon R9 M295X graphics option offered in the refurb store. If you’re looking for an iMac with the M295X option, this may be the iMac for you. But I can’t give it “Deal of the Week” status because of the Apple-supplied 32 GB of RAM. You pay through the nose for Apple RAM, even in the refurb store, and the price for this iMac is on the high side, even considering its specifications.

If you’re looking for a slightly more mundane configuration of the Retina iMac, there are some good prices this week, so be sure to check them out.

Deals of the Week

Our first deal this week happens to be for the base model of the 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display. Coming in at $2,119.00, it’s a much better deal than the top-of-the-line model we mentioned earlier.

Our second deal of the week is a 2014 15.4-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display that includes 16 GB of RAM. That’s a nice amount of RAM to have in this portable powerhouse, at the low price of $1,699.00.
