Apple has offered rebates of £250 and £400 on its 450MHz and 500MHz Power Macintosh G4 systems respectively.

The pre-rebate 450MHz model costs £1,749, and the 500MHz model £2,449.

Apple is also offering rebates on PowerBooks and G4 Cubes.

Industry observers claim the offers are an attempt by Apple to clear stock before the G4 range is updated at January's Macworld Expo, San Francisco.
