The time has come to sell on my iMac. I bought it a few months ago from its original owner, I have the receipt, which shows it was bought direct from Apple in 2016. I am therefore the second owner.
I have added some RAM and the AppleCare Protection Plan.
MK482LL/A, Model A1419, ID 17.1
27″ Retina 5K display, 5120×2880 LED backlit IPS DCI-P3.
3.3GHz Intel quad-core i5 CPU (turbo charged to 3.9GHz), 6th generation.
16GB 1867MHz DDR3 memory. Add more via the user accessible rear slots (2 free), up to 32GB (officially) or 64GB (unofficially).
512GB Apple SSD. I thought a Fusion drive was quick but this is something else! Blackmagic Speed Test app results speak for themselves – see pic. Boots up to desktop in under 20 seconds. Phenominally fast, will handle anything you throw at it.
AMD Radeon R9 M395 2GB graphics card.
MacOS Sierra v10.12.6. Clean install with known “admin” user and password or I can reset the iMac so you can setup from scratch.
Magic Keyboard and Magic Wireless Mouse 2 plus lightning charge cable – no batteries required. Mouse has a couple of smudge/scuff marks on top (see pic) but nothing that prevents normal use. Keyboard excellent with minor scuffs to the back – can’t seem to capture them with my camera.
Comes with inner white box and outer brown shipping box, plus original purchase receipt via an email attachment.
Apple are asking £2,069 on their refurbished site for this exact spec, with just a years warranty so as well as being far cheaper, you’re also getting around 22 months warranty.
The iMac is near perfect condition, just a tiny (really tiny!) mark to the top side of the base plate (pic 9) – can’t be seen unless you put your face right down to it. The mouse has a few scuff marks to the top side, the keyboard has a few scuffs to the underside.
Will happily transfer the AppleCare to the new owner, though in actual fact, the AppleCare ‘moves’ with the iMac. Simple process, fully endorsed by Apple and takes 3-5 days.
I thought a 2TB Fusion drive was quick but this 512GB SSD is even faster, booting to the desktop in under 20 seconds. A truly capable machine that will handle pretty much anything you throw at it. See Blackmagic speed test results in second post below, likewise proof of AppleCare.
Collection only – that way you’ll get a chance to try it out before taking it away, plus I can’t be doing with couriers and the risks associated with it. Likewise cash/BT only, no Paypal. Has been fully reset with known ‘admin’ user and password.
