Hey if anyone from Apple cares, all I want is one of the new 17″ iMacs for less than $1000. I promise that I will give you all the free advertising that I can muster.
Seriously though, it is pretty wrong of Gabe to post that crap on the main site. There are a lot of people out there lusting for this hardware right now (I don’t know if I am lusting really, but anyway) and it sucks that no one else is going to get that discount. It isn’t really Gabe’s fault that he gets the discount, but it is preferential treatment and he might have wanted to keep that to himself.
Also in the interest of full disclosure, I can get a small discount on getting one of their machines, through the school. On the computer that I linked to I get $100 off.
