    Not sure if this has been posted, but there is a rumor that Apple will put a 50% off coupon in an upcoming magazine in order to clear inventory for upcoming Mactels.

    Sounds like BS to me. Some lines won't be updated for a while. Why would they clear the inventory now? Even so, 50% is a big percentage. 10% I can see, but not much more.

    I suspect the Mini-Mac still needs clearing - they still haven't made the unofficial updates (1.5Ghz & 64Mb Video) official yet.

    im buying

    ill get me a mac right now. we should cour for this? barnes and nobles?
    edit: adding stuff& spelling:

    even a 250 dollar mac mini would be incredible, id use this instead of a dvd player, and it would certainly help push the move into the attatch to tv world

    50% off? I think not.

    I can see 10% or 20% (although that would be pushing it)

    They have to maintain profit margins somehow.
    Homeboy (steve jobs) has more business sense than to do that.

    On Tiger night (best. night. ever!) 10% discounts were handed out as a door prizes. It didn't go to everyone. So, I don't see why they'd (basically) give everyone in the US a 50% off coupon.

    10% to 20% if anything.

    that being said, I'll be lining up outside the Apple store at 10 AM. (I'll be at the Galleria ~7.) I can pretend it's a grand opening.

    /where's my free shirt?

    I call BS on this - 50% just doesn't happen from Apple. Dell doesn't even do that.

    This is a PAGE 6 RUMOR. but hey, if you want to believe it, be my guest.

    maybe you'll get an Apple Mighty Mouse as a door prize.

    There's SOMETHING going on.. but no details, even though this image (the larger one) was from the "details" link page (off the smaller graphic):

    From the email (it started out with the smaller graphic and then had the following text):

    I'd say it's in-store only.

    Ok, those images just invoked a hardware store bag sale in my mind. Anything you can fit in a certain sized bag is 10-20% off. There's a height limitation too.

    Oooo... I have never heard of this type of sale...

    I can fit a LOT of stuff into a bag. :D

    20 Nanos + eBay, anyone?

    haaa... like I would pay for something!

    There's no 50% discount in the pipeline.

    But we'll definitely see a 60% price cut across the line, including the dual cores. All apple branded software will be 70% off.

    I call BS.

    But IF this happens, my resistance to buying an iMac G5 will go to rubbles.

    ****. iMac G5 2.1 GHz for $800? Too good to be true, so BS!

    Well, its supposed to be a coupon in a magazine....so we should know before Friday - and I'm thinking only a few magazines come out weekly...

    I'd laugh if they do it - 50% off on a quad G5 - riiiiight :p
