Komplett are a big reseller.

On bespoke machines, there's a slight change in shipping dates provide by apple.com in the UK, previously 1-3 days now showing 4 business days. This only changed today

amazon.co.uk doesn't seem to have any of the i7 iMac range but it has the entry level (i5, 500GB HDD) 21.5" 'in stock' and providing 8% discount. Entry level 27" also in stock and 7% discount, 27" with Radeon HD 6970 In stock and 9% discount

In the UK, Argos have no stock available for home delivery of the base 21.5". No idea when that happened though, I have only checked today. Maybe that is significant, maybe not?

In Canada, the Best Buy website is running really low on all iMac configurations. Most range from only 3 -5 units in stock. Future Shop is ranging from 5-8 units in stock on all configurations.

Yeah, I am praying that they know something that we don't. Hopefully we will see a new iMac at the start of next week.

I am not 100% sure but I think that the discounts have always been there.

I say this because I remember thinking that the amazon prices were similar to buying from apple via the educational store when I was looking awhile back.

Who knows, but I hope we are seeing the start of something here. More and more constraints over the weekend would be a good thing

Some more info on this:
Amazon is selling the computer quoted above for $1607 (new). $1498 is for a used model.

Best Buy online also charges $1607 for this model.

So, unfortunately, these tidbits don't really say anything revelatory.

Unfortunately he failed to notice one small, but vital, bit of detail!! We were talking amazon.co.uk and the figures quoted were sterling...
