No, I like the fact that they dropped the price.
Maybe you can stand to just drop £300 (almost $600) within 3 months and not be bothered by it. But believe it or not, losing that amount in a couple of months actually annoys me a little bit. Its not unreasonable.
I am in no doubt that other purchasers of the 20" will have similar feelings. What's next, are they going to drop the iPod Photo price £200 next week?
This is one of the reasons that Apples secrecy costs them in the wider market. People want value for money in the long run, especially smaller business', and if there is the constant threat of releasing something quickly after an initial launch, or changing prices, people will wait before purchasing. Most will wait, and wait, and wait.... then get bored and buy a PC. Apple need to be a little more open about their plans.
BTW I am all for the progress of technology at the expense of reducing the price of old technology or phasing it out. I just think that the drop for these displays is a clear signal that Apple got it wrong on the pricing when they brought these out. Hence the 33% reduction, practically unheard of in such a short space of time.
Only upside is it now provides me with the opportunity to get a second 20" to match 8)
I am not whining, how about you stop whining about my post and get on with your life.
