16 New equipment prices (Where Should I buy a new Mac?)




Description

This article is from the Macintosh for sale FAQ, by Elliotte Rusty Harold elharo@shock.njit.edu with numerous contributions by others.

16 New equipment prices (Where Should I buy a new Mac?)

What follows are mostly maximum prices you should expect to
pay for current Apple models in standard configurations. You should
have no trouble getting these prices at any Apple reseller in the
United States with a little haggling. In competitive markets or
if you're buying several Macs at once, you may be able to get up to
10% or more off these prices. If you do manage to significantly beat
these prices on a single Mac purchase I'd like to hear about it so I
can keep this list current. Most dealers are unlikely to stock all
configurations listed here. You'll generally get a better price if
you order what's in stock (not to mention you'll get it quicker.)
Finally several of the models below are officially discontinued. I
keep them on the new list as long as some authorized dealers still
have stock and are selling them new with full Apple warranties.

Finally be sure to check the Last modified date at the top of
this file. Apple has been known to cut prices faster than I can
post FAQ lists. To get possibly more recent price lists you can
connect to the University of Texas Microcenter Store at
<URL:http://www.mc.utexas.edu/>. This contains price and product
lists from the University of Texas in Austin. While you have to be
affiliated with the university to actually buy here, these lists
should give you a pretty good idea of what a fair price might be
elsewhere. You can be also try Joe Holmes Mac Street Price Index
at <URL:http://www.users.interport.net/~joholmes/street_price.html>.

For non-Apple equipment prices just scan the back pages of any
issue of MacWorld or MacUser. Since most companies besides Apple
are willing to authorize mail-order dealers, the mail-order prices
on Radius monitors, GCC printers, Quantum Hard Drives and other
third party peripherals should be fairly close to the minimum you
can expect to pay for such items.

In the listings below the first number si the amount of RAM included,
the second number is the hard duisk size. 2CD means a double-speed
CD-ROM drive, 4CD means a quad speed CD-ROM drive. A number followed
by double quotes is the monitor size in inches. (e.g. 14" means the
unit comes with a 14 inch monitor). 14.4 means a 14,400 bps modem.
