I read somewhere, it could be they did these non-rounded prices on purpose now, to show everyone they were forced to do it and it is not their fault. If that's really the case then the person who decided this has to be very stupid.
Sounds about right. As I can recall, they did raise prices like this before. Also, no sane Marketing expert would look at this and say these prices looked good. I mean they stick out like a sore thumb. The last thing you want to do is to have your customers think twice about your prices.
But Im pretty sure the prices will be normalized in the next generation of products and this is just some kinde of jerk reaction of Apple.
