I was expecting to see some price drops on the early 2009 Mac Pros with the release of the new 2010 models but haven't seen any real drops. My local Apple store (admittedly a small college town Apple store) told me they are returning all unsold 2009 Mac Pros to Apple as Apple is not refunding them the difference between what they paid when the machines were most current and what they might now be able to sell them for as "out-dated" machines. All the on-line merchants I have looked at (Apple direct, B+H, Small Dog, Mac Mall etc) have not changed their prices to any significant degree. Can anyone give me any (informed) advise on whether the early 2009 Mac Pros (specifically the base 2.66 Quad) will be dropping in price anytime soon? Right now the price diff between the 2009 and the 2010 base models is only a couple of hundred dollars (US). I really would like to get a new (or not used) machine so I can purchase AppleCare. Thanks for any insight!
