    First of all I want to thank everybody for their help. You MAC guys are pretty helpful. If you didn't read the story click here

    Well I have some good news. I got the full amount refunded from Mastercard. I'm pretty happy.

    I send the whole story to an independent journalist and I think he is in contact with the police as well as other authorities regarding Mr. Divin.

    So it is time to SWITCH. Can anybody give me a websites (NO AUCTIONS) with good deals on Powermacs.

    Thank you again.

    Y.

    heres the thing, apple fixes prices for almost everyone so its hard to find a non-auction good deal other than getting a bunch of extras..... all i'm saying is don't get your opes up.

    You may want to look at the refurbished PowerMacs from the Apple Online Store. You can usually save a couple hundred dollars and you get free shipping and Apple's full 1 year warranty. At the bottom of the "Store" page on Apple's website, click on the red tag that says "special deals" to find the refurbished gear.

    Are you a student or know a student? Many Universities have great deals beyond the normal educational discount.

    find someone, anyone in college and buy them beer so they will help you get a student discount. it is well worth the savings. or you could try refurbs from the Apple Store or SmallDog. Please though, for the love of God, WAIT UNTIL THE 23RD:(
