Best Buy is blowing these out (retail price was $799.99 so this won't last!). They are no longer available online so you'll have to call your local store to see if they have them in stock still (SKU 2658129). Best of luck on this great deal! (note: you may upgrade the RAM to 8GB and you may use your HDTV as a display since these natively have HDMI. Also may be eligible for free Mountain Lion upgrade if new in box).

If you live near a store you can call that store and they can easily check the rest of the stores in the same district as well as the selling price at each store.

You can go to the instore clearance section of the BB website and look at the selections of clearance desktops for each store. If they have any in stock, it will be listed. I just found one!

The worker does not know the new policy, or he does and he just saved the last one for himself.
Or he's telling the truth since clearance pricing isn't national. My local store has one but it's "call for pricing" which leads me to believe it'll only be 10% off or so. When it's really low, they just put the price on the site. When they don't it ends up being not so much.

I got all excited because I wanted the 2012 mac mini and I saw this. Not worth the effort as I am certain from my Open box 10% scores from 2 months ago there are none in NJ...

Slick Deal effect, indeed. "Saving money', indeed! Really tempted by this. My old Mac Mini is barely able to keep up with what I'm putting on it.

Right, but previous guy said there are none in northern california. I just wondered how he checked so fast. There are about 20 bestbuys within 60 miles of me in san francisco. In northern california there are probably 40 to 50.
