January 1st, the magic date?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
3 of the promo's affecting powermac buyers will expire on Dec. 31st. "Double your memory", "Power couple" and "Design Freely" all end on this date so what can we expect? Maybe after "Double your memory" we'll begin to get honestly priced ram in BTO configurations from now on, that wouldn't be much to ask for. The end of a display promo can give birth to one of two things and that is a slightly altered display promo or the arrival of new displays and a new accompanying promo. As for "Design freely" I don't think it has much to tell about what will happen on the 1st. Could it be possible that Apple might release new displays on new year's day and use MWSF to focus on consumer products?

No.

You must realize, just because a promotion ends, doesn't mean Apple will release something new the next day.

Hopefully, it will mean some even better promotions.

Nope. And I doubt *any* company be it Apple, a car co or anyone would release or update a product on the 1st of the 1st!

Not only will they no relese something new...

They'll probably actually post all of thier hardware as available in 1-2 weeks... (2-3?) So that no one back out of purchases based on Mac World Sanfransico Price changes and Prouduct boosts...

This is why the promotion ends... am I wrong???

On second thought after seeing Apple's promo page:

<a href="http://www.apple.com/promo/" target="_blank">http://www.apple.com/promo/</a>

I see dates ranging all over the place. Looks to me like dates have little/no significance to Apple releases. (which is the conclusion others found above) Doh!
