    I am seriously interested in buying a G5 and would like to get the best possible deal. Is APPLE Mfg. the best way to go or is there a wholesale distributor?
    Thx,Jon

    My advice is, stick with an authorized Apple dealer. I purchased mine from Amazon and got a $150 rebate. Now the rebates are $200.

    You can keep an eye on prices and deals here.

    Pamela,
    Thank you so much for the info/link for the Apple G5. I have 2 other questions:
    1. Is it worth it to upgrade from 512mb to 1gb of memory for $125?.
    2. On the hardrive, is it worth it to upgrade from 250gb serial ata drive to 400gb for $200?
    Thx again(in advance),
    Juanito

    Again, you are paying $200 for 150gbs of hard drive. I got a 200gb internal Seagate SATA for less than $100 (from Newegg). I think you could do much better by buying a second drive.

    Of course, that's just my own opinion. [​IMG]

    Good luck, Jon!

    I suggest you use this site:

    Mac Prices

    I found it a pretty good place to go for prices on Macs.

    Apple offers online educational and professional stores with discounts as well if you qualify. (On the right side of "store.apple.com")
