    It is not Apple's way of doing things to raise the cost like that. They always have had a base laptop at $999, and the price on iPods is consistent. If they do not do an scheduled upgrade, they sometimes reduce the price. They plan on any upgrades meeting their price schedule. It influences whether or not they add features, so it is important to them. It may be one of the factors determining the processor used on the iPad 3.

    Its not "price fixing"nor is it illegal m8. We would not be that stupid as a company to ruin a relationship the largest consumer electronics company in the world.

    It could be a weekly sale, or it could be to move inventory as part of our strategy for when ipad 3 launches. IDK. I'm just happy its even easier to sell accessories with the ipad 2 now XD

    There's no way I could do this. I'd go into iPad withdrawal and probably start sucking my thumb while in fetal position.
