    If new MacBook's and MacBook Pro's come out next month as speculated, what happens to all the accessories for the previous generation at the Apple Store? Are they available at a discount/clearance price, or are they immediately taken off the shelves to make room for new accessories?

    I'm looking to purchase an Incase case + iSkin, but am willing to wait if I can get a discount.

    Apple doesn't discount them. They pull the current and put up the new stuff. You might find the old stuff at some online discounter after that I guess.

    the store manager needs to reacquaint themselves with training. apple stores don't sell discounted or returns because it cheapens the atmosphere.

    When I worked at the Apple store in 2001, we didn't have a discount bin for accessories but we did frequently have refurb or last-gen computers for sale at a discount.

    Yeah I was gonna say, we don't have any at any of the 4 stores around here. Friends that work at Apple stores other places in the country don't have them either.
