Power Macintosh Prices

Here are the official prices, straight from the Apple propaganda distributed at today’s presentation. All of these prices are "Apple prices," which means that they are probably relatively close to what you’ll pay at a normal dealer. Obviously, academic discounts will make a difference. Prices for the Power Macs include only the CPU, no keyboard or monitor. The first number is the amount of RAM, the second is the hard drive size, CD indicates an internal AppleCD 300+, AV indicates additional AV technologies included, and SoftWindows indicates that the program is included in the bundle.
