"$100 is not going to sway anyone on the fence about buying one." You're right. Especially when it's not even *really* $100 and you're being limited on how it has to be spent. This is more about Apple's bottom line than giving the customer anything of real value.
While I understand that Apple is not obligated to throw in *any* freebies with a Mac purchase, I still find the new $100 App Store gift card extremely lame in comparison to the free iPod of past promotions. I love Apple and their products, but Apple seems to be getting less and less generous with every passing year. It's all about how much money they can squeeze out of their potential customers as opposed to offering unmatched value to their customers' purchases. From a...

You would think that Microsoft would be the one to get the software end of things going the best. After all, they are supposed to be a software company.

Why would I take the time to disagree in private? You've already stated that you don't care what I think. It sounds like you're in a great mood today! I personally think you're just angry because I made good, valid points. You do what you want with your little "power". I really don't care.
And if you do that then 1) You're a xxxxxxxxxx and 2) You're a prime example of what's wrong with America.Why should anyone be able to bump other people back in line because they pay more money? Quit thinking you're privileged and wait in line like everyone else. If you get there early enough and put in the time (like everyone else) then it'll pay off in the form of you being at the front of the line. Don't be a xxxxxxx No name calling!Mr. melgross - First, douche is not...
