    Nice catch - that's amazing that they could be that far off in price. WTF? I thought originally it may have come with a display of some sort, or something else, but no - it's just for the mini! I hope no one is dumb enough to actually buy one.

    I'm sure it's just a pricing error that hasn't been corrected yet, nothing to have a hissy fit over.

    It's at $599 now. They usually charge more than retail for things so they make people think they're getting a great deal with instant rebates but $1220 was a bit much.

    I think its rather conclusive to say CompUSA needs to fire their webmaster. The prices on the website are always messed up and not up to date.

    Yeah yeah, that's right. :) They've been doing that with iLife, too. They charge $30.99 more for Adobe application upgrades than retail.
