Hello everyone, I'm in the market for a new portable - so I was sort of hoping I could get a discount on a 17" powerbook given the new MacBook Pro is out - so I was browsing a local outlet and the salesperson and I struck up a conversation. The short of it all - he stated to me that Apple (Australia) were going to stop academic pricing near the end of the year - and that he got that 'rumour' from the rep (this place is a reseller). I was a bit shocked at this thought... as I'm hoping to purchase soon - but I didn't want to be rushed into it. But it does ring a bit 'possible' IMHO as there is a levelling now with boot camp etc. My apologies if this issue has been raised elsewhere - I did do a search but couldn't find anything. Anyone know anything about this? or have opinions?
