Hey guys,

Just though you'd be interested to know that we just found out Apple is currently not offering business discounts for the new imac. According to my local store Apple corporate is refusing to allow the discount (usually about 5%) and nobody can figure out why. On a souped up iMac the quote is about 3k with apple care and base RAM, so the amount comes out to about $150.

The education discount still exists.

It's the same story as the Retina Macbook Pro, I enquired at the time of that being launched and was told that because demand was so high they had been told not to give this discount.

Customer loyalty eh!

If I hadn't been making a living using Macs for the last 30 years I might look elsewhere.

Maybe they have stopped this discount across the board especially as we are now all Pros.

I got the same line when I got a business quote the other day. More fuel for me to not get one right now. But I believe that they will re-initiate it in a few months.
