Contrary to online reports, the prices of Apple's flat-panel iMacs were not cut at the end of last week.

The Register, CNet, and MacUser announced Friday that the cuts had now been extended to the low-end version of Apple's LCD iMac and the mid-range combo drive model, claiming reductions of £100 and £50 respectively, to £1,149 and £1,349.

However, this was not the case.

Macworld can clear up any confusion caused by these erroneous "news" reports. These prices changed in the immediate aftermath of Macworld Expo New York, and have been current for at least two weeks - possibly as far back as July 17.

Fred Anderson, Apple's chief financial officer, announced last month that there was a possibility of price cuts in Europe.
