  1. I wouldn’t mind but just how is 12 bucks off to be considered significant??
    Please MDN, stick to news.
    Your site is MacDailyNews not MacDailyAdvertisements
    You have by far the very best Mac news site, don’t go all goofy on us.

  2. Wow, I might save $10 on an external hard drive. Are we supposed to be impressed? That difference in price won’t even pay for shipping in many cases. Lower the price by $40 or $50 and then you have a story.

  3. I don’t have a problem with MDN notifying us of some significant product pricing or new product that may help us out. However, I agree with others: This certainly does not qualify as “significant!”
