I was just wondering if Apple has a habit of dropping their prices around the holidays (either before or after). My best friend is so jealous about my shiny new MBP that she wants one. She won't have enough $$$ until right before Christmas and would hate to buy it then if they were going to be cheaper after Christmas. I really don't remember Apple discounting the way PC companies do, but I only pay attention when I'm looking to buy a new computer. Thanks!
