Refurbished Apple iMac 21.5" A1311 Core i3 540 3.0Ghz 4GB 500GB OS High Sierra £180 with code @ ITZoo

This is a good company for refurbs, they give a good description. Yes it's a 10 year old Mac but for £180 delivered, its not a bad deal. The iMac "Core i3" 3.06 21.5-Inch Aluminum… Read more

I think this is a great deal. For reference if it helps people, two years ago I was still using a late 2009 iMac (Core 2 Duo) which was more than capable given the following. It was very easy to: 1. upgrade the RAM - I had 12 GB using some spare sticks 2. replace the HDD with an SSD - I used a spare 256GB Crucial 3. replace the optical drive with an HDD - I had a spare 1TB 7200rpm It was easy because the screen was magnetic and easy to remove, parts were user changeable and you could cheaply buy an optical bay to HDD convertor (less than £10 I recall). If you remove the original HDD like I did (500GB in my case) you lose the inbuilt temperature thermistor and need to use the free exirion Fan Control software in the background. Having done this, imagine my horror when I got a great deal on a 2015 quad core retina iMac and my boot time went from 30sec (fully laden) to over 3 mins (with barely any software on). Outlook went from a 5 second load to over a minute to respond. I did to OS re-installs just to check there wasn't a problem. No improvement. Replacing the HDD with an SSD was a real pain with the stuck on screen (plus €30 replacement kit) and I'm stuck with 8GB RAM which is sufficient. That difference was like night and day - load times down to approx the same as my Core 2 Duo on the earlier OS. With a machine like this, I would say it is fine for Web, Office, light graphics work etc (the Core i3 is notably better than what I was using quite happily - I'm into tech BTW) but: 1. you cannot upgrade to the latest MacOS - if this bothers you 2. your processor/GPU are the weak point - so games and photo/video manipulation will be no good. Everything is else fine if you do the upgrades and ideal if you have spare parts Hope that helps somebody. iFixit is your friend :)


ah great - really appreciate your help thank you


Ah, you have the newer model that's thinner? You'll need this guide then as the screen is stuck down with double sided foam and you'd need to buy a replacement set as well. I bought my early 2009 iMac 5 years a go for £250, spent under £100 on the RAM and SSD and it's like a new machine. It boots in seconds and I've had no issues at all. But it's at the age where I can't install newer versions of software such as Office 365 and that's down to it not being able to upgrade macOS. Yes there are ways around it as posted above but some of my older software won't run on it. I also have a late 2009 MacBook with an SSD and that also boots in seconds. I don't use iCloud but do have OneDrive, which I've not had any issues with across both Mac's and my Android phone.


thank you - appreciate that. I recently bought a 2013 and I get the loading circle a lot, very frustrating as its quick otherwise. another question - do you have iCloud connected? I've got it across my devices (phone, air, iMac) just as I'm sorting everything out but Im thinking this might be slowing it down ?


Yes I followed this guide - Don't bother getting a bracket for the SSD, just use strong velcro to hold it in place, they're so light. Probably easier with someone helping who can hold the screen up while you change the drive as you don't want to disconnect the cable and remove it completely.

Itzoo are good, but if they’ve sold out then you can always use their prices as a reference point on eBay


Itzoo are great, bought pcs from the number of times.


You can easily boot from a USB 3.0 SSD. I do with mine. Nice and quick.


It doesn’t mean you can Trust them. Have got a lot decent deals and would be interested in one. But I have never heard of them.


takes no more than 5 minutes. I will provide a link for the tool kit. Which cost 15 pounds. I added SSD to mine, and its phenomenal for the price. Currently unavailable but regularly stocked. Just be gentle and and don't rush. No chance of cracking unless you drop the screen.

Still overpriced like all Apple products (in my humble opinion) but this might help someone and ITZOO offer quality used products in my experience.

Can you build a Hakintosh with a Raspberry Pi?


No SSD but 1TB HDD!!!


The only things at that price are either a new screen or a logic board,think you need to post a link to your bargain


Where the links at?

i been doing this job for over 20 years now, and this is my job, i ve to know ins and outs and stay up to date... for me apple has became more of a fashion brand and status item... i know people in design have to stick to certain apple products due to companies they work for and requirements of the tools... but apple is definitely over priced and it is their brand they can name the price, but people justifying the price based on design rather than function gets me really... because i have seen enough people buying mac for the sake of the name and buying it for their primary school kids too... 99% of the time people in my experience are buying for the status/brand not function... macs' thin design features cause a lot more headache in the long run if you are doing serious work but as i said if you re happy and have to use it, you ll use it no matter what anyone says... i d much rather get a lenovo thinkpad than a macbook because a, it will work like a machine it is supposed to b without worrying bumps and liquids and drops, not like a fashion model fragile beauty that will be blown in the first wind... when things go wrong which when i usually invoice to fix, clients dont like what they see/hear... well... and i have seen soo many pro macs gone bust usually thanx to thinness and inadequate cooling space/materials due to design flaw! and apple usually admit these long after people got rid of the broken machines in the bins or paid hefty prices to fix them... but dont take it from me... you are the end user and your experience/mileage of course varies... i m not trying to change you, like you, i m only pointing my opinions/experience and doing a civilized discussion... i always tell my customers/clients my opinion and they decide... which they usually go apple brand despite saying for example a £700-800 laptop with i7/16gb ram/512gb nvme ssd/discreet gfx/ expensive machine, they go get a £2000 macbook with similar specs or lesser mac pro 13! and all they do is check email do a few spreadsheet...


Sorry for the delayed response, have been rather busy of late. I’ve no doubt the Dell notebook you linked is faster than the MacBook Pro, it’s also far bigger, thicker and heavier which makes it a lot easier to fit in the goodies that it has. Price wise I’d concur you get more power for your money there, but not really a fair comparison based on the dimensions. The workstation you link is a great deal, it’s also using the previous generation Xeon CPU’s and has a much slower SSD. I think you and I look at things from a different perspective, in effect neither of us are “wrong” we just have different priorities and see “value” in different areas. On a personal level I want something that just works out of the box. Being heavily invested in the Apple Ecosystem everything talks to each other and I don’t have to mess around with multiples apps from different vendors who all want to sell my data. I care about aesthetics, and much prefer the premium materials and design, yes I am aware that I pay for this, but I’d rather have less “stuff” but for what I do have to be of good quality. It’s why I use Bowers & Wilkins headphones. I don’t doubt that there are headphones out there that are louder or have more features. But I prefer the premium materials such as the calf skin leather on my ears. Where you see needless expense for something that I could build myself for less I see a beautifully designed product that feels that someone cared about the look and feel. Apple is not perfect and I feel that with the previous generation MacBook Pro keyboards they strayed into the realm of form over function and am pleased to see them altering course with the new 16” MacBook Pro. I’m a reasonably technical person, on occasion I’ll build a PC for someone else and enjoy staying up to date with the latest technology. But I’m in a different place to the young and broke geek I was 20 years ago. I have a reasonable salary and would rather spend my time with the wife and kids then building a custom rig or messing around with software patches. To each their own, you’ll not be able to change me and I’ll not be able to change you, but perhaps one day we’ll meet by accident and share a couple of beers.


laptop dell precision 7540 series (workstation class) top of the line base model with i9 8 core, 16gb ram 512nvme and quadro 4gb comes out to £1900 macbook pro 16 with i7 6c same ram same ssd starts at £2400 mind you this has lower spec cpu, identical cpu model starts at £2800! imac pro range is new so not an exact like for like, but hp had z1 series with close enough specs at £2500 tags and dell had precision 5720 series around 1800 starting point... no current imac pro comparable workstation models at moment so cant tell like for like... desktop/tower (workstation) hp z8: xeon 8 core, 64gb ram, +8gb quadro, 1tb ssd starts at £3384 dell precision 7920 same/similar spec below, specced at £3560 mac pro: xeon 8 core, 32gb ram, 8gb rad pro, 256gb ssd starts at £5500 and there are third party custom brands that will get same specs to mac pro less than half! go figure if you go for full rack/server specs... lest say hp dl385, spec with 2x 24c epyc cpu, 64gb ram, 8gb radeon pro, 1tb samsung nvme pro, will come around £3500-4000 depending on the supplier you purchase from and they all come with 3yrs on site warranty incl... apple u you know u have to purchase it yourself... moreover there are cheaper brands too! also if your science team is really good and have no budget constraints, why dont they spec it themselves? at apple's price point you can custom build 2x32core machine with much higher ram and better ssd and gfx card? not all pros have unlimited budget and/or free time to finish project at their own will... i wont name the studio but here is a hint a current blockbuster movie made using amd epyc speced servers and they got 5x time saving during project which translated to quick effects/results which allowed people to go home on time and finish projects early... of course your science team maybe has certain specific requirements/limitations regarding hardware and software choices due to the projects and again software to run it... and you are wrong, macs are not 24/7 365 smooth rides either... when things go wrong they go very wrong very quickly and cost arms and legs replace! i do this professionally long enough so i m not gonna further discuss why apple is way overpriced with you anymore because you are not getting it, my point is apple charges way too much for what you are getting due to eye candy design, i ve no qualm about quality, but your point about win/linux machines being too generic and unstable is unfounded, non apple branded machines/os are good, your point about stability comes from third party softwares... which apple itself suffers too! also your point about dodgy software? you mean mac os? or drivers/loaders that prevent you running mac os on non magic hardware? come on, have you done a hackintosh yourself nor used one? all you have to be careful about is apple's updates that reinstate third party blocks! they just run like normal macs to... anyway as i said i see no need to discuss with you further since you are stuck with apple being too stable for your projects and priced ok (for you) so you are happy with what you have no need for me to burst your buble...


Ok, amaze me. Find a direct equivalent to the new Mac Pro from Dell, or whomever you wish. Then price it up. I think you’ll be very surprised at just how well priced those machines are! Hackintosh, in a corporate environment. What planet are you on. The team have these machines running pretty much 24/7 365 days a year. They don’t have time to mess around with dodgy software work arounds a etc! The iMac Pro and Mac Pro are designed for that small niche of professionals who need the power they provide. The average consumer doesn’t care if their computer has an Intel Core i5 instead of a Core i7, they just want it to work and work well. Out of the box the consumers Macs do just that, and millions of customers are very happy. Can you buy a traditional PC cheaper? Of course you can. Can you build one even cheaper than buying one off the shelf, of course you can. But that’s not really the point. I ran my previous MacBook Pro for 8 years before deciding to upgrade. I got £270 on Gumtree for it, and my initial buy in was £999. The third extra I spent on buying the computer I got back when I sold it. I could have saved that £270 up front and just bought a Dell or something, but then I’d have had to use a crappy trackpad, plastic case, Windows 8, etc. Instead I got the Rolls Royce MacBook with the metal casing, wonderful trackpad, light up keyboard, etc, and my operating system of choice. For me it’s a no brainer. I could buy a PC laptop or build an ugly hackintosh, but as I won’t save much, if any, money in the long run what’s the point.


"Apple exclusively uses Samsung manufactured SSD" no they dont, they used both toshiba and samsung chips... and you were lucky to get the samsung ones for sometime initially... "Mixing retail pricing with the bulk pricing Apple pays makes no sense as you, the consumer, only pay retail pricing to Apple." well it does if you are trying to shrink the pricing apple charges customer and fanboys to justify it... apple charges £600 for an upgrade, where as you can get a retail one for less than half the price for a pro model that is much better than the ones sold to oem for bulk sales models! apple does not use the top of the range models, they never did! it is not in their best interest for profit margin purposes! there are oem/bulk models, there are std retail models, and there are pro models that both performance and longevity is top notch as well as a 10 year warranty!!! ask apple to change your faulty ssd after one year (without an extended warranty that is fancy name and very expensive for an insurance policy!)? however you slice the argument, you are worse off!!! "That Apple makes more money from smartphones than the Mac is irrelevant," They have been shifting to consumers more and more for quite sometimes now, and their product cycles/periods also showing the trend, maybe it is irrelevant to you, but most of their pro stuff super basic over priced "show off/status" items now... what was pro once becoming a niche for pros, and soon i m guessing will be really niche or abandoned.... "Fortune 500 sized company" will be relevant for consumer pc sales! because majority of their sales are to hipsters and show offs nowadays... if you are really pro/scientist, get a £1000 pc and turn it into a hackintosh within a few hours, make it a £5000 mac beater! soon you will see macs will start using amd cpus too, which will make them a much more generic brand than they are now, but because it will have the apple logo it will be the new magic machine that is so not a regular pc! only reason why you call hackintoshes unreliable is only due to apple using certain chips/tricks to stop people using mac os in non magic computers that are not apple branded! no other reasons... 90+% of their stuff are third party parts that you can actually buy off the shelf from pc parts stores anywhere local/online! "Obviously they don’t know what they are doing and only chose the setup they have because they felt like wasting money....... Or perhaps, just perhaps they know what they are doing, it is their job after all." thats you saying it all, for me, i can put together a hackintosh that will run fine for your science club without hick up, for 1/4-1/5th of apple equivalent... but cant do so commercially due to obvious reasons... and apple doesnt want any company to run mac os, for obvious $$$£££ reasons... not because apple makes great hardware they dont! they just use off the shelf parts, for now... in mobile market, they are making their own cpu with licensed arm model, but if they switch on that arm cpus to macs, they may be relevant again but that is to be seen until their performance figures comes out that if it ever materializes!...

If you know how to change HDD then it's decent. If not, stay very far away


I stand corrected, I am on about iMac Pro the all in one unit. The Mrs would not tolerate anything else in the dining room. iMac base units would be more adaptable for sure.


They do plan stopping ESU (Extended Security Updates) in January 2023, it costs $50 to get the patches per machine - (although they are cute about it as it increments to $100 in year & $200 in year 3, yes it's all US pricing). If you are a big organisation they do offer substantial discounts though. Also worth pointing out that it debuted in 2009... Mac OS X debuted in 2001, although to be fair you won't find many updates for the original 10.0.1 (although there are still no known security vulnerabilities). 2007 saw the end of PowerPC support and it appears Apple decided to make the second Intel only supported OS the oldest one they provide an upgrade path from (10.6 (2009) was the first macOS with Intel support). So support has been continuous from 10.7 (2010) - (if you powered on a Mac running 10.7 you could upgrade it to 10.11 and from there to 10.15). So it remains to be seen if Apple will continue freely supporting 10.7. I guess you could say it has currently supported the OS longer than MS, Microsoft has shifted to a paid support model now after 11 years...

Yep mines came. it was boxed - no mouse or keyboard as expected. The only defect i can see is a small chip on the display on the bezel where it meets the aluminium. Not enough to notice and only seen it when i took a torch to it to inspect. keeper.

After researching I thought the main things to get were a dedicated graphics card, fusion drive, and paying the extra for a 27 inch to have access to insert extra ram. In a few years if it slows down having the option to easily upgrade this should mean it'll always be at a decent standard I think


Having had Macs for the best part of 20 years I’m used to their product cycles. Given there was an update to iMacs in 2017 (March) and then 2019 (March) it’s not expected there will be an update now until (probably) March 2021. This is based on current cycles and they may well throw a curve ball in there. There are currently no rumours to suggest an refreshed iMac range will come in 2020.


What you gonna be using the computer for ? If it's mainly games then probably !


Do you know if there are any plans to make a new model soon ? In the market for one but I could wait if the 2019 ones are expected to come down in price . Sure these are more than capable but always good to try and future proof


ask google then.

Yes. There are 4 slots. I moved the 16gb to the main slots. Plus the 8 makes 40. Probably makes no difference which slots are used.


I’ve got 2x16gb Ram on the way. It’s good to leave the 2x4gb in there then?


From 2017 all iMacs have USB3 / Thunderbolt 3 which are capable of speeds up to 40 GBPS... definitely fast enough to hook up a fast SSD for booting etc.


I have this & im going to sell mine!


There is a flap on the back for ram upgrade. Very easy to add ram. I have same model with 40gb now.

You sound like a right helmet mind.


Replacing the HDD is not easy. I'm using a 2012 iMac with MacOs installed on 1tb MX500 SSD with USB 3.1 enclosure, it works super quick. Just be sure that your enclosure supports UASP.


Exactly. And it’s a shame as this having a hard disk is the difference between a good deal and a not so good one. I’m sure many of us can swap a hard disk out but I don’t spend a grand to have to dismantle and cut the glue off the thing as soon as it arrives. It’s not even a Fusion Drive in this machine is it? The rest of the spec is respectable, especially the Radeon Pro 570 and excellent 5K display. 8GB of RAM is a bit stingy but easily fixed.


Erm. Thanks for the heads up. I bought this one at lunchtime. :)

£849 for a brand new iMac seems like a decent deal! Any thoughts ???

You could put together a noisy old box with cheap components but not inside the monitor case. That is where the money goes. Miniaturisation costs. Maybe something like a higher end NUC with Thunderbolt ports is closer to the mark but then you are starting to get closer to iMac prices without the style, OS or support. Having had an iMac, AIOs are definitely not my thing but there is a market for these things and there are Windows based equivalents, most of which aren't really any cheaper.


Look, I've never been a fan of fruit based technology. Apples and Blackberrys, not my thing. I just don't get why people are paying these silly amounts of money for such a spec. I know it's the old build your own or buy one argument, but you could put together a PC of a similar spec for £300-£350. Monitors of that size will go for £20 on ebay or facebook groups. It's cold from me, not because it's fruit based, but that spec is nowhere near deserving of that price tag.


low spec and small screen thats whys the price is less.


5400rpm drive on a £1k+ device. I'm not going to entertain this further.


Fusion is not bad, but plain hdd is terrible. Less than 8g of ram not functional.

No one cares, you still don't own iMac.


The total price for my rig including keyboard, mouse and 4k 32" monitor was around £1250. Most of the parts procured here on hotukdeals. I have a 1tb nvme, a vega 56, i5 9600k, 32gb ram running at 3200mhz. And.... I can swap parts out at will. I also several Imacs. This hack smashes them to pieces.


Cold from me. I'm just not sure what you'd even be able to do with this system - it's got an amazingly nice screen, but it's so lacking in memory and processing capacity that it's useless for any sort of modern or demanding task, whether it be image, video or audio work, gaming, or whatever else. It'd be alright for web browsing and light office work, and it'd be good for consuming content, but I'd expect a bit more of a £1750 system, and certainly wouldn't want to use it as a workstation or creative platform.

So, it's pretty much moreso a case of looking out for the 2011 versions of the iMac's then, etc?, fair enough ... Thanx.


2012 I think, when they went for that 5mm thick design (which seems a bit disingenuous when it's the edge that's 5mm thick, if you made it knife-edge sharp is it less than 1mm now (lol) ). The 27" 2012 onwards at least have a memory access door, the 21.5" needed total disassembly to access that. 2011 and before was the unibody models with the magnetic glass on the front (you can tell because the glass goes to the edges on 3 sides) and then 2008 and before that too (where the glass doesn't touch the outer edge).


Up to what year did Apple start fluffing about with these newer (and now more common) anti-consumer iMac model's then?. After their 2013 model? (so the 2014 was the first one that disallowed manyyyyyy thing's?). Or after their 2014 model? (or whatever?). Which version/year was their last actual usable iMac before alllllll these deliberate/drastic 'design changes' of theirs, etc etc etc?. Thanx.


The 27" is easier and also has the memory access door. I didn't say it was impossible, it's just extremely anti-consumer and imagine slipping and going too deep - that's why it's advised you have a pizza cutter tool. You can replace the adhesive after but it's another thing so it's not as simple as with the older ones. There are often many ways of tackling a task but it's complicated with the newer iMacs just because that's how they made them - why not stick with magnetic pads? Literally no excuse.

Played 100's hours, so at this price a great deal whatever your political beliefs are. I own on Switch too and is just as good a game on there. A go to game when you are sat there thinking what could I possibly play when you have a small amount of time to play as you can just keep going back in short bursts. Maybe the price is an indication of a new to be announced D4?


+1 social credit point.

I only want the Reaper of Souls, but it`s only 50p cheaper. Nuts.

I have pretty much the same mac except i brought mine at amazon refurb. Honestly its so fast the mac os is so much more cleaner and smoother compared to my usual windows, it really is worth the price compared to what you can get for this price.


Afraid I never tried it as a 4.1, I upgraded to a 5.1 straight away, its since ran El Capitan, Sierra, High Sierra and after adding a £30 used GT640 GPU for Metal graphics support it's now running Mojave (it is Catalina capable though, not a bad lifespan eh)


No, no, no, onboard Nvidia GPU is a thermal disaster on these macs and its basically a £100 PC with a pretty shell, seriously...


Oh man, now that sounds like a deal! Thanks for the heads up! Might buy one to run a little iOS app build server.


Or boot it off an external SSD in target disk mode, but that’s a bit of an ugly solution.

Lets home 2020 will bring SSD only


TBH it really depends. I've got a MacBook Pro 2015 with pretty fast internal SSD and for day to day stuff I can't see a major difference.


Yes i think you are correct. I misunderstood what you were saying and thought you were saying to go for a SDD only model.


I think the 2TB models and above use a 128GB SSD for Fusion drive. It's these 1TB models.


The only problem with that is that you then have to go to Apple to spec an iMac with a SSD as Very and others like John Lewis only sell the models with fusion drives,and the downside with going to Apple is that you won't get this sort of discount,if any at all. Minimum cost of this machine from Apple with a 256gb SSD is £1839,so over £500 more,which is a waste for some who wouldn't benefit from a SSD. In the couple of months I've owned my version of this iMac i can honestly say that i have not had any reason to want a SSD as everything that I personally use fires up straight away,even starting it up from completely off takes about 12-15 seconds. Ok this won't be for everyone but for those who want a nice tidy setup with great screen for light use then this is a great deal at this price.

Another great deal from these guys - no touch screen but will run Windows 10 no problem!

Plus it's an Apple


No. But that’s how you check the stock levels. The iMac is nice but totally uninteresting with a slow hard disk that’s difficult to get at.


Did you buy it?


When they have these ‘bargain’ models that is almost always the case - the normal ‘non-bargain’ section has a small quantity more often. Anyway even if it is back in stock now, there is only 1 available right now. So it is actually true, sir.


That's not actually true sir.

Ah, you got to love HUKD for the Apple hate. Just a wee fact check, you won't find a 27" 5K display that is anywhere near as good as this one for under £1k. Not everyone needs an i9, and these latest i5 chips are very impressive. The only thing that would prevent me buying this (and is the reason I custom built my iMac with Apple), is the Fusion Drive. It's fine for consumer use - many won't even frequently use the mechanical component all that often - but for Pro use, it's just too slow. The rest of the machine is incredible, so it completely depends on the use case scenario.


Incorrect. Also, this isn’t Hire Purchase. Unsure how you came to this baffling conclusion


Very just banged the price back up to £1635 - must be too much activity thanks to hotukdeals!

Appreciate the reply, thanks. I would like to get one to do a little bit of photo editing, basically lightroom. I was looking at late 2015 ones but they vary so much in price it’s hard to fix on to what I actually want/need.


Hard to say for sure - there's huge variety and price so depends on your budget. Anything from about 2014 onwards will still run well, but it depends what you want it for - photo and video editing is a very different requirement to basic office type stuff. Best thing to do is decide on size: 21" or 27"... set your budget limit, then get as new as possible. One with an SSD would be a major plus as its far less prone to slow downs as it ages.


What would be the ideal iMac to buy second hand now? I have been looking at them but so unsure what how old/new it should be.


Didn't say it wasn't a good deal. But nothing apple is a bargain. Voted hot anyway


Can you find it cheaper?

Ok.. what about an older Mac Pro? Surely it outperforms a new Mac mini


As somebody who bought 4 imacs for my studio, I honestly can't recommend them. Two are 5k models and don't seem to have the power to run at that resolution. The fusion drives are bad, just plain bad. One of the others, the screen faield and the replacement is just not worth the outlay. Really it depends on your needs. If you must by apple, I would get a new mac mini and an external gpu and seperate monitor. Else, its either a hackintosh or an unraid setup


What would you recommend, iMac wise?


Ewww working in IT I cringe at hardrives now and will resent having to support them, adding to the awful disability if not even bring able to remove it easily when it fails 1200£ it's does not cost much for 1tb ssd


Each to their own but I’ve just bought a 2014 iMac and I am very impressed with how quick it performs. Granted I wouldn’t use it to edit 4k video or play new release games but I wouldn’t say it’s sluggish:D
