The Apple Store Has Re-listed the 2006 iMac and Its Bizarre
Apple has always had expensive products and the price is constantly rising for new iPhones as each year goes by. However Apple just accidentally or intentionally posted an iMac from 2006 on their store page and the price is absurd even for the most die-hard Apple fans. This first appeared on the Canadian store but then it appeared on the US store as well which makes it hard to believe that Apple made the same mistake twice.
Many people thought that it was Apples way of giving fans a tease for some new products, though it’s unlikely that the Apple would revive the 2006 iMac. The most puzzling aspect of this mistake is that the asking price is $1000 which is extremely expensive for a very old computer dating as far back as 2006.
The specifications are duo core processor, 512MB of RAM, a 160GB Serial ATA hard drive, and a decrepit integrated graphics chip. It also has three USB 2.0 ports, two Firewire “400″ that are seriously out dated. These specifications really do show just how far computers have come and a much better computer with almost four times the power can be purchased for half the asking price of this 2006 iMac. Lots of people were interested in the nature of this listing but mainly if it’s even true, unfortunately most people aren’t rich enough or brave enough to purchase this iMac as a test.
There has however been a couple content creators that saw an opportunity to make some views and have ordered some of these 2006 iMacs, the earliest delivery date to obtain one is February 19th 2020 so we can expect an unboxing/review sooner rather than later. It’s hard to believe that this is true after all these years, so did Apple just have a stockpile of old 2006 iMacs? Nobody really knows what is happening at Apple but the most likely outcome is that Apple refunds the people that purchased this 2006 iMac and announces that it was an accident.
If this does turn out to be a real listing then it could be an amazing opportunity for collectors that want to collect Apple technology. Sure you could purchase an iMac from 2006 online but you aren’t guaranteed that it will be brand new and un-opened product which is what most collectors aim for. Apple usually revives some older technology to celebrate the anniversary of a certain device, so its completely random that Apple would put an old piece of technology back on sale and without any upgrades.
However this turns out, the iMac from 2006 wont be something that a lot of people desire especially when you can get much better for much cheaper. Thats all the information we have on the mystery listing of the iMac, let us know your thoughts down below.
