    Did anyone else notice that Apple dropped the price on the Mac Pro to $2599 for the 8 core model? It's $2149 if you opt for the single quad core CPU. As I recall, it was $2799


    Am I just this far behind the latest Apple news?

    Oh god. That can't be the update...


    EDIT: I think you're looking at the education store. It's still $2799

    EDIT: Yeah, you're definitely just looking at the education store. Smooth :rolleyes:

    I see 2,299.00 for quad and $2799 for octo, not sure what you are looking at. If there is a price drop, we're atleast a month away from a new product, if not more for them to get rid of current inventory.

    always remember to logoff from your school account when browsing apple.com if you want to see the real prices, not student discount.

    Too bad...

    My eyes lit up when I saw the words price drop but would anyone have a guess on when new Intel Power Macs might come out? Thanks

    Mac Pro. And check the buyer's guide. The general guess around here: soon... hopefully.
