    Apple is like any piece of high end merchandise. The prices are retail everywhere and the only real discounts come to students and employees. Someone will bring up developer's discounts, but you have to pay to get it and in the end is not worth it if you are just looking to save the biggest buck.

    So, no, there isn't a cheaper place to buy a G5.

    Alright thanks for all the info. I emailed Powermax to see how much they would give me for my Powerbook, cause a trade in would help. Although Powermax prices are somewhat high. What would be a reasonable price to sell a Titanium Powerbook 550mhz with 512mb ram?
