So sad that the older model has better graphics.
Are you able to upgrade the RAM in either of these models?
Actually the 6200 is a beast with around a teraflop of power…Can play Prey at 1080p on low…But terrible drivers and a few weird design decisions hamstring it in most games.
It still does better than the 750m though, which is closer to a desktop 740 and could not drive 4k happily.
The late 2013 you can. But you have to take off the LCD.
Some details about the late 2015 model:
I honestly thought you were kidding, but that’s dirty.
I recently asked an Apple rep about RAM upgrade, he said:
iMac 2015 model, and Apple Memory (RAM) in iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2015), and iMac (Retina 4K, 21.5-inch, Late 2015) is not upgradeable.
Who refurbs these machines? I thought only Apple stood behind “Apple certified” or in other words, refurb machines bought directly through Apple.
Condition Factory Reconditioned
Apple did refurbish these.
Thanks. Should there be a problem, would we contact Apple directly or we have to contact Woot or Amazon?
Actually no. I work for Apple, our refurbs come with a years warranty and you can buy Apple Care. Factory reconditioned means it was just reconditioned in a factory. We do not refurb and let third parties resell.
We even have a site for it. https://www.apple.com/shop/browse/home/specialdeals/mac
This has a 1-year Apple warranty and you can find out more on how to contact them in the Features section. You can also contact Woot CS for assistance as well.
Good deal then, I spoke to soon, but oddly enough they are not on our corporate refurb site. You should maybe make it a clear in the description.
My bad it is from Apple, so you can buy Apple care within the first 60 days. 2013 is the one I would go for. If I were not working for the company.
Say what you will about Apple, but we bought one of these 21.5" iMacs for our kids for Christmas 2010 (i3 w/4GB RAM, 1TB HDD). Seven years later it’s still going strong and is completely sufficient for their needs. I’m considering buying one of these just because I feel bad making my kids use a seven year old computer…
Thanks for updates. New question:
Really, isn’t 2013 too old, or will become too old too soon? Wouldn’t even a new base-level from Apple still have more power? What do you love about the 2013?
Get the 2013 you can upgrade it.
I have the same one i got 16 gigs and an ssd in it. Runs like a scalding dog.
The older one can be upgraded, but it’s difficult. You need to remove the display and logic board to access the SO-DIMM slots. Having said that, Macs are very ram efficient. Unless you know you need more ram for image/video processing, you aren’t likely to run into issues.
The newer one isn’t upgradable, as the ram is soldered.
