Does anyone know the original 2005 Canadian price of the iMac G5s with the built in iSights (17 inch and 20 inch) by any chance? I know it's an oddball question, but if anyone knows, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks in advance!

P.S. even the price of just one monitor size would help

Wow. Considering the 24" is $2199 now, the prices have really dropped... Even in like the 1.5 years since Intel.

(And yea, I know that's what technology does -- but still)

FYI, you can find info on both original pricing and estimated current value (in US$), along with a host of other specs, for all macs at everymac.com.

But does the US release price always correspond to the Canadian? I'm thinking of the difference in currency and market that has transpired since this release, for example.

Yea the original Core Duo Intels were the same price as the outgoing G5s which was a feat -- 2-3x the horse power, same price. :)

With the Core 2 Duos they did the massive price drops.

And with the new lineup of Aluminum Macs maybe even more price drops ;) (fingers crossed)

Hold yer horses buddy. :) Don't count on it. The redesign is probably to keep the profit margins up. The iMac is probably finally seeing a slip in sales.

Yeah, but at the higher 17" Price Point... I'd say 20" at minimum $1399. Maybe $1499 even -- it's $1699 MSRP right now.

No way in hell SJ's gonna let a 20"er aluminum resdesign fly out the door for $1099 ;) As much as everyone would love it, and all the Mac-Haters would stop bitching about price (and then find something else to bitch about... non-upgradability?)
