    =====

    Purchased directly from Apple for £1496.40 on 16.05.2011

    The iMac is in mint condition and works flawlessly.

    I am located in Hertfordshire and would be willing to meet to do a cash trade, the only other method I shall accept is bank transfer. To post this item it will cost around £30.00 (DHL) and would need to be added to the final sale price.

    That's correct. I am going to have a friend check it over tonight to see if he can spot *anything* at all as I am unable to however a second set of eyes will never hurt!

    The iMac was literally sat on my desk and used almost every day since ownership, it was only touched to dust off.

    Just to confirm, I have had someone else look over this and they agree it's in mint condition.

    Thanks.

    I once upon a time had an ex girlfriend (threw that one away) who worked at Apple whom must of applied discount if that is the case. The billing document has no mention of a discount though, again I'd be happy to send you a copy of that minus my details?

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    If I could ask a few questions, please?

    1. Was this machine subject to the Apple HDD recall and if so was a new hard drive fitted and when?
    2. Could you please PM the serial number so I can check Apple Care.
    3. Can you please advise whereabouts in Hertfordshire you are for a pickup.

    Many thanks.

    1. I have had no problems with the HDD and therefore it has not been returned to Apple for a new drive to be fitted.

    2. & 3. - I'll send you a PM with those details.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the PM info, all checked out as expected.

    Would you accept £900, cash on collection, I'll pick it up from you?

    Sorry for the slow response. I'd be looking for more than that if I am honest, definitely wanting to fetch £1k+. Let me know if that's something you can do.

    £850 is too low I'm afraid.

    If you can go any higher than £1000 let me know!

    Thanks.
