No iMac discount?

I guess the problem is that the new iMacs are not out yet.

Amazon has been the best place to get MacBook Pros so far.
Not if you're one of the states subject to sales tax. :(

I'll stick with B&H. Generally good deals, exemplary customer service, free shipping and of course, no sales tax for me.

this year was aggravating but good

i saved and saved just enough and was ready to buy a macbook pro retina 15 inch base model on black friday. Then one day the dog started crying so I took him to the vet and they said he has cavities. Being that I love my dog and had a couple bucks saved I said do what needs to be done. They told me to drop him off the night before and they will take care of him in the morning. He is family so of course I worried about him alone in a vet cage so I made sure he had his bed and favourite blanket for the puppy snug. I of course still cried because I missed him. Anyway I get there in the morning. I resolved myself before I brought him in to basically downsizing my computer goals from retina pro 15 to maybe an 11 inch air. when I got through the door they said he did great and was ok. I was so happy.

then she hands me the bill. I nearly died. I wasn't sure they were going to let me take him home because they pulled 15 teeth and cleaned what was left. I was kinda relieved that I had enough money because she said she made a slight billing error. so instead of 2000 it was only 1000-ish plus tax plus ear care and analgesic for pain/antibiotics. All was good. However now after going through my finances realized that I was going to be screwed on black friday and will have to wait to get my computer another month down the road. I'm fortunate my puppy is no longer in pain. he's hugging me right now :) but I do need the laptop. (portable production studio) so I count down the days until I get paid. gogo "Minimum Wage-A-Tron 500". ooo gives me an idea for the next release title.

Apple's discounts are like starting haggling at 70% off and settling for 70p off because you still feel you got a good deal...

... By saving 70p..

Still too much money. I bet there's a $1000 or more dollars in profit in all their CPUs.

than go buy your HP w/ windows 8 or whatever....clearly most of us don't desire that.
