Anyone else notice Best Buy is still selling all of the old white iMac models online?

    I check everyday and to my amazement they are all available for order online. What I don't understand is the pricing. They have the 24" for $1799, while this is $200 less than it originally sold for, it is the exact same price as the updated new model-that makes no sense. Sometimes I am tempted by the white one due to the superior screen but they should reduce the price to make it more appealing. I think $1599 at this point is reasonable.

    That is surprising. Macmall is also still selling white iMacs.

    They're always late to update. When I bought my last mac, they were selling the previous gen model for the same price at BB. Luckily there was an Apple reseller nearby and I didn't get screwed. :)

    I was in a Best Buy a week ago that was selling both the old and new iMacs, oddly enough.

    Wow but at least their price is sensible-$1549 and then there is a $100 rebate for a net cost of $1449, that's where best Buy should be. I wonder if that is a refurb?

    What I like about Best Buy is that they don't Mickey Mouse you with restock fees, that is one thing about the Apple Store that I really don't like.

    I work at a Best Buy store -- sadly, not one that sells Macs -- and feel so guilty selling PCs all day long. But, at least in the store, you have 14 days to return a computer and get charged a 15% restocking fee if the box is opened.

    I guess you meant to say you have 14 days to return a computer and NOT get charged a 15% restocking fee?

    Here in Vegas we have 2 Best Buys that sell Macs and they regularly have decent inventory.

    No, he meant what he wrote. Best Buy (and most other retailers) charge a restocking fee if you've opened the box. However, this is only good for 14 days. Anything beyond that, and you're stuck with your item.
