Huge Intel price cuts, discounts on refurbished items, discounts from retailers, the fact that their computer has been pretty much sans revision in almost a year, which leads me to the last point: the 1 year birthday of the mac pro is august 7th.For Instance???
I'm seeing ~40% price cuts on 5xxx series xeons in swedish retail stores...Where did you see 5xxx series dual and quad core chip price cuts? Intel only cut prices on the 6xxx series dual and quad core chips which Apple doesn't use.
All these rumors about Intel price cuts and I still haven't seen any on the Intel Xeon 5xxx series!
