Get Em While They're Hot, At Circuit City

Get Em While They're Hot, At Circuit City

by , 8:00 AM EST, April 5th, 2002

Yahoo News is reporting that Circuit City is offering some blow out deals on its remaining Mac stock. The two companies are officially ending their retailing agreements, and Circuit City is apparently keen on moving its stock as fast as possible. From the article, titled "Cheap Apple pickings at Circuit City":

Macintosh buyers across the country are reporting saving several hundred dollars off the cost of a new Mac. While there are no flat-panel iMacs--Circuit City never got any--there have been some deals on new iBooks as well as the old-style iMacs.

Apple Computer and Circuit City announced in February that they were ending their relationship. The retailer said it would sell its remaining inventory.

Mac buyers on enthusiast Web sites like PowerBook Central reported snapping up iMacs that still sell for $1,000 at other retailers for as little as $550 at Circuit City, and iBooks that sell for $1,200 for $750.

If you are in the market for an iMac, and you don't mind a G3, run, don't walk, over to your local Circuit City and see what deals can be had. Afterwards, let's us know what you've found.

The Mac Observer Spin:

It had to happen. When Apple and CC decided to end their relationship, the door for the mother of all iMac sales was opened wide. True, these are not the G4, LCD topped iMacs, but they are no slouches by any standard, either.
