If that was the price of their PCs for <I>anyone</I> they'd have 50% of the market in under two years. I am impressed with Apple actually rewarding its employees. Compare that to any other company making record profits who only enrich their top management while firing everyone else they can. And btw, Apple doesn't make its own processors...no idea how that got in there.

With all the revenue they make from the apple tax, I am not surprised they would do this...

Kudos to Apple for rewarding employees commensurate with their well deserved success. They make class leading hardware and software and have class leading service to go along with it. They have continually raised the bar on what consumers can expect from computer tech.

This is rediculous! How about saying that the Apple iPad is overpriced for the consumer! Apple employees are not really getting a discount. They are just paying a more justified price for something that is overpriced.

So they get it at the price it should really be at then. They're getting the products without the '*****' tax they chuck on top for the shiny apple logo...

This is the stupidest post on here. Apple Store employees (the ones getting the raises, the subject of this article) don't make any hardware or software. What a clueless post. The people that actually slave away to make the products don't get jack except tall buildings to jump off of

"Each employee may only use their discount once every three years"

There you go, not all that great as it looks. People must have some lousy jobs if they think this is worth an article on a web site, I get way better benefits from a much smaller company, even an extra 13th and 14th month at the end of every year.
