Apple Cuts Prices, Begins Rebates

Apple Cuts Prices, Begins Rebates -- Last week, Apple decreased pricing dramatically on the PowerBook 3400 and Power Macintosh 8600. For instance, Apple dropped the price on the Power Macintosh 8600/300/Zip from $3,200 to $2,600 and the PowerBook 3400c/200 decreased from $4,500 to $3,800 (see the PowerBook 3400 review in TidBITS-371). Additionally, Apple has instituted a series of rebates designed to encourage people to purchase Apple peripherals either singly or in tandem with a new Mac. For example, the Apple QuickTake 200 digital camera ($550 street price) comes with a $75 rebate if purchased alone or a $150 rebate if purchased with certain Macs. Apple traditionally drops prices in anticipation of upcoming product releases; no doubt this promotion relates to the forthcoming release of the so-called Gossamer Macs. [TJE]
