Apple is offering the refurbished 2017 21.5-inch iMac starting at $1,0999. That’s $200 off the original sticker price of $1,299. That money gets you a 4K display, 8GB of RAM, a 1TB spinning hard drive, and the Radeon Pro 555 graphics card. Powering it all is a 3.0GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 processor.

There are several other configurations available for more cash. For instance, $1,269 will get you a 3.4GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 processor with a 1TB Fusion Drive and the Radeon Pro 560. The refurbished 2017 21.5-inch iMac models max out at $1,609 for a 3.6GHz Intel quad-core i7 processor with 16GB of RAM, a 1TB Fusion Drive, and the Radeon 560 graphics chip.

Buying refurbished products directly from Apple is a good way to get a slight price discount with a guarantee of quality, though you can generally find better deals from other retailers over at 9to5Toys. Nevertheless, there’s something to be said about buying directly from Apple.

Apple’s refurbished products come with a one-year limited warranty and a 14-day return window. Here’s how Apple describes its online refurbished store:

  • Quality products at great prices
  • Rigorous refurbishment process prior to sale
  • Covered by Apple’s one-year limited warranty
  • Covered by Apple’s 14-day returns policy
  • AppleCare can be purchased
  • Engraving and gift wrap not available for refurbished products
  • Supplies are limited
