    Hi, for those who sadly track the weekly state of the UK refurbished store on the Apple Site, you will have noticed today is the first time ever that a QUAD has been offered for >20% discount to new.

    in fact they are at 30% discount.

    The last products to have such a discount was the mac mini two weeks before the intel mini was announced!!

    Maybe the September dates are all a bluff and they have done the job already ready for the April 1st date.

    :) :) :) :)

    powermac's have been on the refurb store for years - notice no iBooks no Mac Mini's for over a week now.

    xserve is a bargain at £7k :D

    ? where to find it....

    go to www.apple.com/uk site (not irish site)

    then click the refurb icon bottom right

    then check out discount of the QUAD's now on offer - 30% discount

    Surely though, it is a return, or a repair and not because they are being discontinued??

    Rich.

    They're offering it at the US online store for a 16% discount. Still not a bad price for anyone contemplating ordering the last revision of PPC Power Macs.

    Wow...30% at the UK Refurb store for a Quad. It's only 16% here at the Apple Refurb store in the US. I noticed today they put almost every PM G5 model that's been released on there as a refurb.

    I've never seen a PowerMac on the Canadian refurb pages. :(
