Apple reduces price on 20-inch iMac G5

updated 07:40 pm EST, Tue January 31, 2006

20-inch iMac G5 price drop

Apple today lowered prices on its larger 20-inch iMac G5 by $200, while leaving the price on its low-end 17-inch iMac G5 untouched. The reduction comes after Apple refused to discount the older-generation G5 iMacs following the introduction of the new Intel iMac at Macworld San Francisco. As noted by AppleInsider, the company's online store now sells the 20-inch iMac G5 for $1499, a $200 discount off its $1699 retail price--the same price as the 20-inch Intel-based version. The move will help Apple sell the iMac G5 and and also avoid confusion to customers, as vendors and Apple Stores were offering both the newer Intel-based iMacs and the older PowerPC-based iMacs for the same price. The price of the 17-inch iMac G5 remains unchanged at $1,299, suggesting that the company has much less inventory of the lower-end iMac and expects to be able to move what's left of the remaining models at the current price. Apple Store customers who purchased a 20-inch iMac within 10 calendar days of shipment may request a refund from Apple Sales Support (1-800-676-2775), but must do so within 14 business days of shipment.

    Your wordage is misleading. Apple did not "refuse" to lower the price of its G5 iMacs. It simply did not do so. To say it refused implies people are calling up Apple in droves and asking it to. That is unlikely to be the case.

    non change referb price

    For referbs the iMac G5 1.8GHz still stands at $1,149. Seems like that should fall also.

    Software on refurb iMac

    I was tempted by the $1149 20" refurb iMac, but I'm disappointed that it comes with iLife 05, not 06. It's not like bundling the current version would cost Apple much.

    Yes, also not that it is 1.8GHz, so it is slower than the discounted version...
