    I was just looking at the Apple store refurb prices. They still list the older Mac Pro models with prices that haven't changed since the introduction of the new MP's. Somebody would have to be nuts or very ill-informed to buy a refurb at the old prices.

    There are always people who find some reason to believe that the old models are better than the new models.

    If Apple can make some money from that, I'm all for it.

    I can vouch for there being some very uninformed customers shopping there. for instance, one morning they had a 1.66 Ghz CoreDuo 1 GB RAM Mac Mini there foe 650... I laughed, because I have one for sale with better specs for way less then that, but theirs was gone same day!!!

    "..B-O-O H-O-O...". "...there is a sucker born every minute...". Very sad some people have more dollars than sense. eBay was built on people who have no idea of value.

    It always takes a while for the refurbs to drop in price. Once new and old are in the channel, then you'll see a difference.

    60+ Mac Pros on sale (fleece) on EBay right now.... I guess a lot of "old" Mac Pro owners are dumping them for the new model.


    In other news, the ATI Radeon x1900xt still on sale at the Apple online store for the low, low price of only $400.00 !!!!

    Yes, but then everyone knows Apple. None of the people you are advertising to know you. That, plus a warranty, make a difference to some people.
