2GHz Dual Core PowerMacs for $1699. 2.3 and 2.5 Quad Dual Core PowerMacs also available. Looks like Amazon is still a better deal (for me in CA).

What's interesting about this is the shipping timetable: "2 weeks." Hmmm, what's that all about? I still like the 2.7GHz DP for $2149 if you're going to go refurb PowerMac G5. Of course Amazon is the best deal of all for us in the Golden State...get a new Dual Core G5, get a rebate, and no sales tax=a lot of saving$.

I am hoping to pick up a "cheap" dual 1.8 or 2.0GHz G5 powermac soon. The refurbs are still too expensive for me with the CA tax. I have been looking on Craigslist, but those morons typically want more for a 2 year old 1.8GHz dual than a new 2.0GHz dual core costs. It is really hard to find a good deal on Craigslist.

Consider the logistics of a re-seller/distributor returning warehouse stock .
There are minimum quantities for quantity discounts involved in getting the stock in the first place and credit limit extensions that complicate what a re-seller/distributor wants to sit on.
Apple probably ends up ahead of the game with warehouse returning, rather than discount-crediting past inventory through outlets to help move it.
Apple's discount page seems to move stock rather well considering how often they are out of things after posting/offering them. $5.00 or $10.00 per unit additional freight on a trailer load often beats a shared loss through a distributor/vendor. (It alos frees up a vendors credit extension)
