u dont have to go though groupon to get that price just go direct to the company and plus the prices seem a bit dear for the specs

£450 For a 2008 cpu and 8gb ram!
If that was a windows machine you would be looking at £80

Hotukdeals users hate things that aren't a deal.

This isn't a deal.

This isn't even close to a deal.

This is so far from a deal you can't even see a deal.

The deal is a dot to you!

It is a 2009 tech product for £380.

An useless 2009 tech product for £380 because good luck doing anything meaningful with just 2GB RAM and a laughable 9400m GPU.

It ain't what you've got, it's what you can do with it that counts.

Mac OSX is soooooo much better at maximising the resources available than Windoze ever has.

Mine is nearly 5 years old and hasn't lost a beat in pace since day one.

Although in fairness. This is still a pretty poor deal when a similar conditioned 2011 model can be had off eBay for a similar price.

Laughable with Windoze, indeed. Mac OSX or Linux? Think again mate.

I don't object to paying a little over the odds for nice design, materials and a not awful screen but it does seem very overpriced for the age and Core 2 Duo and 9400M spec.

Windoze, really? How old are you?

Anyway, no. A 9400m is laughable regardless of OS. I have a Mac mini 2011. With an i7, 8GB RAM and a 6630m GPU. Even with that setup it is starting to strain with my media requirements.

A 2009 Mac for that price is a ripoff, and silly fanboy wars has nothing to do with it.

I have the late 2009 27" iMac i7 with 12 gig of ram and even that is too slow for a lot of tasks. You better off spending this money of a PC as you will get a lot more for your money.

It would probably still be capable of correcting your poor grammar!

Try and run any version of OSX in the last five years on 1gb of ram.

Now run windows 8.1 / 10 on 1gb of ram and you will see a massive difference in performance in favour of windows.

OSX is nowhere near as efficient as the latest versions of windows. There is a reason why apple wont let you install windows 10 on a mac that is more than 3.5 years old, because they will see massively superior performance and dump OSX and not upgrade to a newer mac.

Also, have you seen how hard it is to upgrade the hard drive on one of these things?

I suggest you learn about computers before you talk about them.

Oh, and I actually have one of these imac's because I am an app developer, I purchased it off of ebay for £160.

COLD.

Had an iMac 27" late 2009 for a year and must say it has been a delight to use (main comp is an i7), but the cost of replacement parts for macs is crazy. Graphics card gave up a month ago, ATI HD4850 mobile, and a replacement is over £300!! £60 for the pc. Had to bake it in the oven to repair it otherwise I would have had to sell for parts.

Old tech and overpriced.

Voted cold, specification is vastly out of date, and I'm a an Apple fan, so I'm not knocking Mac vs PC comments like the rest of the comments !

If you want a cheap Mac pay a maximum of £399 for the entry level Mac Mini (there have been deals recently to get this at a better price) and hook up a standard computer monitor keyboard and mouse. You'd be paying roughly the same and getting a modern Intel i5 CPU and a lot more storage space (500GB).

There's a lot of arguments to spend more than £399 and get a better Mac but if that's your budget then its better than this refurbished 2009 iMac

That's the thing, the only people bringing in that silly fanboy wars are those in defended of Mac. Just why? It should be clear to them that people are voting this cold because it is not a good deal, regardless what logo is on the box.

As you say, if £380 is your budget the Mac mini is a much better choice. At the very least it will run your media work decently.

Ram is actually pretty easy on this particular model.

overpriced underpowered apple

Do not buy from groupon sent me two sets of beats studio that were both broken . They were for kids Christmas presents . Fobbed me off on refund so went through PayPal . Then said they would refund me only if I closed PayPal dispute . 13 emails no refund they failed to respond to PayPal and they told me 10 times to close dispute against paypals advice . Spoke to PayPal and they said all groupon needed to do was to enter resolution centre to authorise refund but advisor from groupon wouldn't do it . Once again asked for me to close dispute . Once dispute is closed you have no comeback . How can a company behave like this . I will expose them !!!! And so should others !!!
