Hi

So my PC is on its last legs, and I have decided to replace with a good spec'd iMac, 27 inch.

I was about to pull the trigger on Apple's site, but came across this Official Apple reseller on ebay.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/str/deecies

(The full range of iMacs is 'hidden' under the 'More' menu item.  They seem to offer every possible combination.  https://www.ebay.co.uk/s...ther/_i.html?_storecat=1)

They have been on ebay since 2001. They have a 100% positive feedback for last 12months, 2.3k plus lifetime reviews.  Reviews are all very good and gushing.

For a 2020 27 inch iMac, with 10 core, 10th gen i9 .. 128G RAM (128 !!!) ... 1TB SSD ... and 5700 XT video card, I managed to order for £3850, inlcuding VAT and delivery.   Listed at £4,099 ... but they accept offers. Brand new, manufactured to order (3 week delivery timescale)

The exact same iMac on Apple store is £5,999  I seem to have saved £2,150 on a brand new top of the range iMac.  

 

Anyway, based on all of the positive reviews I have ordered.  But would obviously be interested to hear if anyone else has had experience of them, good or bad.  I am puzzled by their business-model. My best guess is, they buy in bulk (discount), base models ... and then upgrade memory and storage themselves (& hence not chargin the apple tax).
