You know the computer system you've just specced out for your boss is an impressive one when the discount (off the already-discounted academic price) is over $1,000. Apple is putting together a nice year-end bundle deal for us. The total price is over $10,000. (The "regular" academic pricing totals $11,476.) I'd be more jealous if CIT hadn't just bought me a top-of-the-line Power Mac G4 with 17" flat-panel.
