    Why isn't Apple lowering its hardware prices due to the economic crisis we are facing?

    This is one of the most ridiculous questions I've seen asked here several times, but this one has an extra ounce of special in it. It's posted to the Mac Pro forum. Why on earth would you post this in a forum dedicated to high end computers aimed at professionals? :rolleyes:

    The more appropriate question's probably why the heck would they?

    They're pretty financially secure as a company and I'm guessing they must be happy with their sales figures. Apple very rarely lowers the prices on its computers anyway.

    All things considered, the economy isn't really affecting Apple's sales. Mac sales are down 3%. I'd imagine they'd have to go down a lot more before Apple started thinking of price cuts.

    Because Mac Pro people are elitist and like our computers expensive & stylish. The poorer the rest of the population is that cannot afford our expensive toys... the better we feel.

    Because people will still buy Macs? Its only been recently that Macs were "cheap" - I remember paying more than the current Mac Pros cost for my PowerMac G5.
