Got a Micro Center mailing today. Great deals on G5s and iMacs! $200 mail-in rebates on 1.6 and 1.8, bringing prices down to $1599 and $1899. This must be the old single 1.8 since they say the reg price is $2099 and the current dual 1.8 goes for $2499. Rebate expires 2/8, a week from Sunday. New G5s that week?
They also have 17" iMacs on sale for $1299, reg. $1599. No rebate, just $300 off. They say limited supplies. Clearance sale? Yes. I see on close inspection that these are the older 1 GHz iMacs and not the current 1.25 GHz models. No changes in the other Macs but they are trying to get rid of old G3 iBooks with 12" going for $799.99.Micro Center
The only seemingly current model with a rebate is the 1.6 G5 but when you go to the link above, you see that it's the Jaguar version, not Panther. Looks like nothing current is on sale so maybe this doesn't mean anything but maybe it also means one shouldn't expect any updates until after 2/8 or maybe not until March.
