I ordered a refurb Imac 24" (white model) from the online store the other day - it has just arrived in pretty much as new condition apart from a few very minor marks if you look really really closely. I'm very very happy because it turned out to be the 2.33ghz version with the 7600GT in it - I had ordered the 2.16ghz and the 7300gt, but got the better specs. very happy, thanks apple.

You did go well, guess that is the good thing with refurbs, if its a custom imac you will get good tech specs

My refurb MacPro came with only the advertised specs - But I didn't complain because, y'know... It was a MacPro. :)
