    The price is a discount off the price that machine originally sold at, not the price it is now.

    The Mac Pro got a massive price drop not too long ago.

    That's about right. It's about 10% discount, something you can get as a student.

    this has only been posted this week. I can't image it moving now with the new pro announcement on the 7th.
