    Default Apple LED Cinema Display-24" flat panel - Better Price outlets?

    Okay I am basically a PC guy as most would know heheh..

    I got a G5 Mac and PC (no guess which one I will use most of the time heheh) to use at my new office. I am in need of buying one more 24inch iMac computer and two Apple 24" Cinema Display monitors for existing Macs at the office.

    As I don't really keep up with where to buy Mac stuff as much....any one who can help me find a reseller that can sell me the 24" Cinema Monitors cheaper then at a Typical Mac shop.....would be greatly appreciated.

    If the same can be had to get a cheaper price for a new iMac 24" system that would be good too.

    Thanks in advance.

    Mac prices are pretty much controlled at street level. I know a personal friend who is a small time reseller also gave me that LL look. Bundle deals, discounts all must be approved unless they cut away commission for you. Hence PC show has near zero impact on mac products sometimes as they are very rigid on pricing. As for accessories on sale, these are all rubbish brands which are only mac compatible.

    If you know the owner of the few big resellers here (eg club 21 group, etc), you may enjoy a certain cut like about 20% or more. But that is, if you know them. LOL

    Only other route is to get refurb mac, which i dont quite recommend as sometimes they may not come in very minty conditions. Its a gamble but some say its worth is since the full warranty is there and for commercial uses, they dont bother. Besides, they can still get apple care for worry free 3yrs.

    Best deal for streets is 5% discount. And, for licensed resellers, they are not supposed to sell preowned units.

    heheh I guess as much man.. but you can't fault this man for trying to save some $$ for the company getting them heheh... I guess we will have to pay the full price if there is no where to get a better pricing. It is just like Oakley lah.... everything is controlled heheh...

    Not looking to get refurbish ones so that option is out.

    if you don't specifically need apple cinema displays, an equivalent dell display should be around 1/2 the price.
