10% off is not impressive at all, but hey its the best apple has ever done =D

Apple feeling the pricing pressure from other vendors. Thats the only reason that can explain their 10% departure from price gouging.

I'd like to see Apple raise all their prices for Black Friday, just to see if people would still buy with reckless abandon. I bet it wouldn't slow sales that much.

My intention is to spend as much as humanly possible (http://www.sirspendalot.com/). It's good for the economy right? And I really need that $2500 keyboard right?
