any Futureshop!!! the pricing error is in there system, even online but it's OOS, although you can still order it.

these are the SAME drives in my thread about $99.99 @ CompuSmart, so it's FW and bootable, with a firmware update.

it was fate that i did'nt pick up a second drive at CompuSmart on the last day of the sale! :D

So the $70 MIR is specific to FS purchases only? Because the Compusmart MIR offer expired already.

they'll print you the form when you buy it. it's going to AcomData, same as before. or you can pick the form up online at FS.

Why does this not surprise me. Does everyone remember all the inconsistancies with the specs they posted with Apple products? (Maybe they're still there)

looks like this rebate is rotating from store to store
next time it will only be at best buy :)

hehe, but the instant rebate wasn't as good this time around, CompuSmart sale price of $99.99 was much better than $129.99. but the FS pricing error to make it $59.99 was GREAT!

I hope you actually get your rebate. My friend and I each bought one of these in January from FS and neither of us has ever seen the rebate.
