I just noticed this on the US Apple store:

http://a248.e.akamai.net/7/248/2041/974/store.apple.com/Catalog/US/Images/cp_hw_imac_060228.gif

Before the store update, it showed a price of 1499$, now after the update it shows 1299$. But when you click on it, it still shows the old price.

Could it be? It would be a real bargain...

EDIT: They changed the price to $1499, to it seemed to be a typo (or they were planning to do a price drop, but they changed their mind)

Yeah, I noticed that as well, don't know what's up. There's a good deal at Amazon for the 20": $1350 new after rebate with free shipping and no tax, about $25 less if you have the A9 discount.

Could be a typo. UK Site says iMac 17" starts at 1049. Ha!

it's true,but that is for the advertised 17-incher which they don't have anymore. so really, it's still 1499

But I'm positive that before the store update the image on the fornt page showed $1499, and now it shows $1299. Why would they change it? But on the other hand, the other stores still show the old price (I just checked the Canada Store).

no, it always showed 1299, never reflecting the fact that the 17-inch imacs sold out

Then why do the other Apple stores reflect the fact that the 17" iMacs are sold out? I'm pretty sure it showed $1499, i just saw it today before the update.

When they stopped selling the 17", the page did show "from $1499". I remember it clearly, I'm guessing it's just a typo.
