I think it would be sooooo cool if in April, as an april fools joke, apple made their website like "old" from back in the early 90's, and put up the performa 575 and other old comps, instead of the new stuff. Then, when u go to the apple store to buy it, it says "April Fools, here is the real thing"! Like, a banner at the bottom of the page

33 mhz 68040 ONLY $2279!

was a performa 575 really that much? I bought a performa 550 with an 030 33mhz for $1200

Nah, it was about 1750, but I was thinking about the older macs from 1983, plus 1700 back then was more than it is now, so if you make it equivalent to 1992, it's about 2000.

I'd be very surpised if Apple would pull an Apirl Fools joke - not many mainstream companies do. Partly because there are always people out there who just don't get it.....:rolleyes:

LOL, well, I still think it would be hilarious, but you make a VERY good point there! I still think, however, that they might consider doing it for a day... I am sure they still have the old files, plus, what would one day of missing sales hurt?
