    Check out this weeks Canadian BestBuy AD:

    Not only do they say the iMac G5 has a 15" screen, but they don't list the processor speed of the Mac mini and the correct amount of RAM. It's a shame too because BestBuy's were doing so well here too.

    Maybe Apple expanding to Best Buy wasn't such a good idea after all... :rolleyes: ;)

    Ummm, that would be because this is the old, pre-upgrade Mini model they are selling - M9686LL/A with 256 Mb RAM and Panther rather than M9686LL/B with 512 Mb and Tiger

    They have dropped the price by $20 to $579.

    Good eye CanadaRam.

    Though, they still seem to have gotten their screen sizes bungled up. That's okay though, it happens every week to something in their ad. It could have been worse.

    Well, at least it's nice that they devoted a full page in the circular to Mac. The circ I get rarely has a pic of the Mac mini, usually there is only the occasional ad for some flavor of iPod.

    Okay, but then they do have the wrong price in the flyer. And doesn't any Mac purchased today have Tiger no matter what or at least a free upgrade to Tiger?

    I love how it says Authorized Reseller on it. More like Authorized idiots. Snort.
