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).

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.
That guy is full of it, found one at my local store. Dont know if i should get it though.

so tempting... I just placed an order with the Dell Alienware Desktop, but I am so to Apple ...

By the way, how hard to expand the memory to 8GB?
