I could get an Ibook @ 1149 before, now I can only get it @ 1199. Anyone else having this problem?

Same here. The regular price is 1249$ and the edu price is 1199$, but I'm sure it was 1149$ last week... :confused:

Has there been any major movement in the Canadian vs US dollar lately?

This might have happened last night during the Apple store downtime.

I'm pretty sure it was always $1199. There is a model for $1149 but that is the education model which lacks the combo drive (old-skool CD-ROM read-only) and Airport Express, pretty stupid model in my opinion for the $50 difference.

I always like calling into the 1-800 number anyway (I see it's listed for the CA site store as well) - I've gotten unexpected discounts that way as well when digging for what their best deal is.

Hm....I never noticed that, does anyone know if there was also a price change in the powerbooks, I THINK* the price was lower but I can remember.

I just went to the Apple Store after I noticed this thread. I could not find any changes from the last time I was on it, also know as yesterday. I configured a Powerbook the same as mine and the price was the same as what I paid for it in Feburary. Displays were the same price. I not familiar with iBook prices so I cannot tell if they have changed.

yep the price has changed
I do remember it being $1149 two months ago , I was looking to replace my 12" iBook that got stolen , and now its $1199 wow what a crappy deal for a machine that needs some serious upgrading to be good again.
one would have thought the price would come down not go up
unless updates are next week :rolleyes:
