Between now and September, anyone buying a new Apple Performa 5260 8/800CD will get an additional $500 discount by trading in a working PC. And if the trade-in is an Apple computer, they can buy an Apple Colour StyleWriter 1500 printer at $100 off the RRP.
Apple's Bill Harrington told ARN that this was a genuine deal, on a current model. "It's really easy for the reseller. They simply order the product as a special code (already including the $500 discount) and when they have trade-ins to collect, contact Apple." The only catch is that the computers must be working, including all necessary bits like the screen and keyboard. The deal is also available to schools.
