    So I was interested in to see how much the "old" iMacs would drop in price, as the new ones just came out. Well, to my surprise, there is NO iMacs, or any other Mac for that matter, in the clearance site. Just a bunch of accessories...

    This time last year, when the UMBP came out, I bought my 4,1 MBP from the clearance site for a great deal.. Are they changing this practice, or did they change the location on their website?

    Check Amazon or MacMall, the third party stores are likely the best place to find the older models.

    THey'll be there in a few days. Wouldn't want anyone to opt for an older one over a newer one. :rolleyes:

    Don't forget the third-party stores where you can walk in.

    well, when i bought my 2.5GHZ MBP, it was $1700 from apple.com, but then i used my edu discount and it was $1599. I walked into BB, to look at the one i ordered online a few days later, they were still $2499 for the same one i bought. BB will usually gouge people as long as they can!

    That's not true. When new models come in, you can usually see them at a reduced price. What I want to know is if Apple tell retailers what to drop the prices to on old models? That's would be the most plausible reason, seeing as they wouldn't have a basis on where to drop it.

    But I guarantee they'll be there in a few days. Like someone else said, don't want the old ones taking the thunder away.

    going on a month now...

    So did this ever happen? No? or did I miss it?

    Been checking the clearance section on store.apple.com several times a day nearly every day since the new iMacs were released. Never saw a one iMac, MacBook, or Mac mini in the Clearance section.

    Keep waiting??? Or are they just "refurbing" them?

    Peace.:apple:

    I always thought that they put the old models in the refurb section and not really the clearance section. I thought that was the reason for the increased number of models listed in the refurb section now.
