They are preparing the holiday discount to "gift" you the $100 back...

They did it to increase their profit margin.

As far as I know it's always been $1799 at the Apple Store at least... Are you maybe getting the education price confused with the non education price?

They did it because so many people on here were complaining that they couldn't properly differentiate between the models so Apple made it easier.


Thanks MacRumors whiners.

:D

You cannot possibly be suggesting that Apple is a profit driven organization. When did that happens?
