    If you choose the iMac with the i5 7400 CPU then it has to be the iMac (Retina 4K, 21.5-inch, 2017) as that is the only iMac that had that CPU.
    That iMac supports the latest version of macOS that just came out called Ventura. It is a good iMac but the mechanical SATA 2.5" hard drive in there really runs macOS slow. As others have mentioned replacing the hard drive with an SSD like the Crucial SATA 2.5" MX500 makes a world of difference but there is risk removing the display as it's held on with very high bond strips, I've seen so many with cracks in the display. Running macOS from an external SSD is an option but there's no trim support set up that way but better than internal mechanical hard drive.

    Thanks for the info don’t know much about these so fingers crossed it’s the 4k model
    gone with the Refurbished APPLE IMAC A1418 All-in-One PC - 21.5" Display - Intel i5-7400 Core i5 3.0GHz CPU - 1000GB HDD - 16GB RAM

    Heat. Just saying - I still use my 2011 Mac which I updated to Sierra and it works great for web design, image editing, home video editing, and music production. Really quick and no issues. The Mac in this deal should be super and a bargain.
    Avatar
    That's great your 2011 iMac is still running great! This 2017 iMac will run incredibly slow though as it's running the latest macOS Ventura. Any macOS running Mojave 10.14, Catalina 10.5, Big Sur 11, Montery 12 or Ventura 13 runs terribly on a mechanical hard drive as those versions of macOS by default run on the newer APFS filesystem. APFS was designed for SSD's.
    The 2017 iMac actually stills supports Sierra 10.12 and High Sierra 10.13 which use the hard drive friendly filesystem mac OS Extended (journaled) so you could have a fast running iMac with a mechanical hard drive but there are security concerns running an older unsupported version of macOS.

    What year is this? Assume it won't take the latest OS? Is there any issues with not being able to get the newest OS?
    Avatar
    You can use OpenCore legacy patcher and run one of the newer OS'. Judging by the 7400, I think it's a 2017 model.

    If people don’t want to take it apart to upgrade the HD, you can get a USB-c or thunderbolt M.2 caddy + M.2 SSD, then install Mac OS on that. This will actually give you a faster drive doing it this way (compared to replacing the internal SATA drive).
    Avatar
    If they are being taken apart, I wouldn't stop at the SATA drive.

    These will have a proprietary Apple SSD connector on the rear side of the board, if you're taking it apart. I'd recommend putting an m.2 with an adapter into that connector. Then replace the 5400RPM drive with either a 7200 or an SSD too.

    Nice deal, heated.

    ITZOO does come up with some really decent bargains now and then. There was a 5k, 27-inch A1419 with i5-6th gen, 8GB and 1TB last week for £250 (incl.10% off code)..spent a couple of hours thinking about it and boom, someone had grabbed it.

    Would’ve been a good project to create your own studio display!

    has anyone got their imac yet? how was the condition?

    Ordered the one and only A Grade they had last Thursday, shipped yesterday, arrived today...had to get them to do a price adjustment. Was B Grade..slight dent on front edge, huge scuff on back Apple logo, red marker near ethernet socket, and several other scuffs.

    Admittedly, after using some isopropryl, some brasso and some armor all with some elbow grease I have turned what I would class as a B Grade machine into more of an A-, but certainly wasn't up to the so called grading standards...but at least the screen is totally unmarked.

    Not for myself, I hate anything Apple, it's my wife's machine, pleased with the price adjustment, good value for a 4K iMac with dedicated Radeon graphics card. Ordered a Crucial X8 external NVme, should get over the bottleneck of this machine only having an internal SATA interface by using one of the USB 3.1 gen 2 ports, then use bootcamp so she can get the best out of Windows and crapple.

    Saw this earlier. Couldn’t work out if it was the Retina model or not but still a decent price. I would factor in the parts to remove the front glass and install an SSD as that hard disk is just terrible on a modern PC. You need specialist tools and sticky pads to remove and replace the glass safely.

    Looks like it is the 4k model because the cpu is from 2017

    I'm still using my early 2008 imac that I bought for £20 5 years ago and upgraded the RAM and HD to a SSD drive. I think it was much easier to do on the earlier imacs.
    It still runs great on El Capitan and it's not just internet I use it for.. Still runs Garageband no problem...

    Managed to get a 2011 for £50 in the summer on marketplace 👀

    Its a late 2013 model! Would still work with low processor intensive tasks
  14. Avatar
    That processor is still fine really, it's a decent machine since the displays are always nice on iMacs. I'd be taking a deep breath and upgrading to an SSD, though. (edited)
    Avatar
    Yes, that’s the problem, or use Target Disk mode and run an SSD externally. These things are a pain to get into and put back together without obvious signs.

    I have a retina late 2014 27" iMac (Model ID iMac15,1) sitting on my desk behind my M1 MacBook Pro...
    I didn't realise they made non-retina iMacs after that.
    It's possible to convert this 27inch model into a 5K monitor with a converter board, but I'm not sure it would be worth it on the 21Inch.

    Great price for a 2017 model, I have a 27" version with a beefier CPU and it's still pretty capable today. You can add an external SSD with Thunderbolt or USB3, and macOS can boot from it too.
    Avatar
    People are saying you can't? Or is that some other method?
  17. Avatar
    This would be great except it runs on a hard drive which will be a big bottleneck. Unfortunately bcos of that the benefits of Mac are negated (Photoshop, video editing) which to get decent performance should use ssd as well. For day to day use it is fine though although cheaper alternatives exist

    If it has usb 3.0 then run an SSD externally.. that's what I do on this model and its fast -

    Retina, Late 2015 3.1ghz quad-core i5, 8gb ram.

    Yes windows runs very fast on my external ssd

    how long do they typically take to ship?

    Also note that the code above did work and I got a stellar deal.

    thanks everyone... hopefully the condition is good.
