I don't know if anyone has seen this yet or not, but I was just on Amazon looking at the prices on iMacs and I came across this:

I hope I'm missing something, but it looks like they're charging $2899.99 for the standard i5 iMac! That's $900 more than Apple charges! Is Amazon hoping to take advantage of a few careless buyers, or is there a demand that great for i5 iMacs that they can price gouge like that? I hope this is just a typo, but any potential buyers should beware of tricks like this!

You'd be fool to pay that. If anyone pays that price without doing product research, it's their own fault.
