Dropped in online store.
How much cheaper?
not that i can see.
The uk ones haven't dropped
nope not dropped at all here.
Like the RAM and processor stuff.
I can get a 3.4GHz quadcore with 16gigs of ram, 1 terabyte harddrive + SSD, and the best 2gig onboard ram video card, all for $3200.
They have dropped on amazon.co.uk if you're still interested in a 2011 iMac. The low end 27inch is now nearly as cheap as a high end 21.5inch on the Apple site.
UK same still..
Maybe they're just getting rid of their stock!
Ok ok... Can't a man dream?!
The retailers will surely be pressuring Apple to lower the wholesale price of iMac. They will quit ordering 2011 iMacs that nobody wants to buy.
What were the US prices before? How much have they dropped?
Ah, just seen that. £926.40 for the entry-level 21.5", £1269.40 for the entry-level 27".
my original post was downvoted, but i was right
Yes, they dropped particularly for BTO with additional RAM and large drives. The price for the system that I configured last week, maxed out 27", is about $500.00 today.
I see this as a bad sign, it's like they're throwing us a bone due to there not being a refresh. I want the whole effin skeleton please.
No, its not a bone Apple has reset its pricing structure lower. If you look at the new MacBook Pro (Retina) its a far better machine at a slightly better price than its predecessor. The old MacBook Pro, even with today's upgrades, is cheaper than it was yesterday. I am excited about the impending new iMac.
Few things here. You'd be crazy to purchase an iMac with 16 of ram from the Apple store when you can add the ram later from a third party site like crucial for a third of the price. The price dropped? Who cares, its still more expensive than buying the ram separately.
I was just bringing news about the iMac to the table.
Why did this post get voted down, he's right isn't he?
Yes, but not really. The cost has dropped enough that it will cut into a lot of the DIY upgrades. Of course, DIY will always be less expensive but the margin of savings has just been slashed.
Correct. It will definitely cut into third party sales and encourage sales of iMacs on Apple's site. Ram is still cheaper elsewhere though.
On a different note, I am so terribly tired of waiting. I understand the business strategy, but I was seriously amped up to buy a fancy new iMac today. Huge let down.
100% agreed. The SSD (that no sane person would put in himself) is still a $600, but RAM (that no one should buy from Apple) is down to $300 for 16GB.
Not a price cut I would see...
The base 21.5" is still the same. On the Apple site, in the refurb store, and on Amazon.
