    Well he does seem to have his evidence in order, perhaps they didn't want to charge more for the 17" MacBook 'Pro' than the base Mac Pro

    Ah, after further inspection the $2999 ad is from the Canadian store.

    EDIT: and the Canadian store still has the 17" MacBook Pro for $2999, yet the MP starts at $2899, WTF?

    Well, If I lived up north, I'd consider buying one from Canada, since $2999 Canadian is about $2431.86 American according to XE.com

    Or you could buy a Mac Pro for even less.

    The gap seriously narrows out once you factor in the 13% sales tax (at least here in Ontario).
