Or trying to get their stock prices to go back up... So far it's climbing today.



Ha. Yes, lowering the educational price on their lowest spec notebook should really jack up their stock!

Stock went up today!! Must be bc of some pointless story on Macrumors!

People, I mean PC buyers, I mean Mac buyers don't have a grasp on reality and pricing anymore.

999$ and 1299$ is still a HUGE rip-off for computer that old, fat, limited and outdated.

Of course when your mind is limited to the world of Apple product and so you don't have a grasp on the reality of prices anymore you can find numerous rationalization BS reasons, but a quick look at the PC market or even the refurb Mac market will show you how expensive this "deal" is.


It depends what you class as a rip off. As far as I'm concerned a ~$500 dell is a pile of junk. What smart idiot thought putting the intake fan where your knee is would be a good idea?

The difference is, you invest in a mac and you sell it 2 years later and loose around 20% of its value. You invest in any other brand and sell it 2 years later you loose about 80% of its value.

By getting into a regular refresh cycle you can get away with paying around $300 every couple of years for a new mac, as you'd be selling your old one.

Not just the display. The design, quality, MagSafe-connector & USB-Hub. I need a huge display and the 30" Dell alternative costs around the same but looks from the front worse than the back of the current TB display.
