Apple reduces G4, Cube, PowerBook prices
With the myriad of Apple rebates having expired yesterday at midnight, the Apple Store has revised its prices for the systems affected by those rebates: the Power Mac G4, G4 Cube, and PowerBook G3. Pricing for the PowerMac G4 is now $1,300 for the 400 MHz, $2000 for the MP 450 MHz, and $2500 for the MP 500 MHz. The 450 MHz G4 Cube now starts at $1500, while the 500 MHz model maintains its $2300 price tag (pricing for the high-end Cube remains unchanged as well, at $2800). Only two PowerBook configurations are now available, the 400 MHz and 500 MHz, for $2000 and $2200, respectively. Readers note that the build-to-order (BTO) option is not available for these configurations. [updated]
