    I saw it the other day in the store. I went over the specs a dozen times looking for somekind of upgrade. Ram, hard drive, printer bundle anything!

    They are hurting Apple's image by feeding the myth of their computers being overpriced. Was the 27" that great of a bargain that best buy felt threatened it would canibalize their PC sales?

    It has to be a mistake, as this only showed up a couple of days ago. Their prices mirror the Apple website.

    or WORST BUY!

    Also has any one noticed how all their Apple accessories are priced exactly 99 cents over the MSRP set by Apple? At least at my local best buy they are pretty nice about price matching. To compete with the local walmart (which also happens to sell a ton of Apple accessories), our local best buy will do a 110% price match or $5.00 off (whichever is greater) in addition to the price match. So a great way to get the pesky accessories like mini DP adapters and stuff is to have best buy price match it to Apple, and get an additional 5 bucks off, lol

    Is the 110% or $5 off honored at all Best Buys? I was going to buy a mini-DVI to VGA adapter there, but their price is $5 (25%) more than what they sell for at the Apple Store! I thought it might be a ploy to drive people to buy the Dynex version since it is an "exclusive" Best Buy brand.
