    Hi, listing this for my brother in law.

    He got this IMac around 18months ago through a work scheme and bought with the intention of using for music production but never got round to getting the software to go with it. As far as I'm aware it has been out of the box once to check it over but has never even been turned on. Anyway, they have a baby on the way now so this has to go to raise funds for less shiny things.

    I'm not sure if any applecare left or how that works being that it hasn't been used yet. I've posted the spec in the pics below but will have to relay any other questions to him.

    Collection only from Stockport at this point

    Price and currency: 650
    Delivery: Goods must be exchanged in person
    Payment method: Cash on pick up, PPG or bank transfer
    Location: Stockport
    Advertised elsewhere?: Advertised elsewhere
    Prefer goods collected?: I prefer the goods to be collected

    Hello,

    Would you accept £500. I can pay cash or PPG and could collect this weekend.

    Kind Regards

    Glyn

    Thanks for the offer Glyn, having looked at some completed listings on ebay, this is the going rate for one of these in used but very good condition. As this is brand new he'd like to hold out for the asking price of £650 which is a fair one.

    Thanks

    Dom

    Hi, Ive input the serial number to apples warranty checker and it can't validate the purchase date. I'm guessing this is because its never been set up so may be able to set it up as purchased on the day you actually get it? Not really au fait with apples systems for these things ..

    Unfortunately there is no warranty remaining with this. When you enter your Apple ID upon setup, it links the Mac to the original purchase date from 18 months ago so, no remaining warranty. Hope that helps someone.

    Bump.

    As above, looks like there is no warranty on this but it is completely unused.

    Potentially, where abouts are you? Wouldn't have a clue on insured and secure postage for something like this but may be able to drop off in the North West.

    I am south - surrey. Nowhere near north. I can cough up the delivery cost which is fine but i am just looking at the price. Id probabbly go around the £500 mark which i think is fair and i believe you have already turned it down from someone else

    Sorry, as you said I've already turned down £500 as that is just too low for a brand new iMac going off completed sales for used ones that I've seen on ebay. I'm happy to put an offer to him but it would need to be much closer to the asking price.
