I don't know about Apple specifically, but some manufacturers have contracts that dictate a lowest advertised price.

In fact, one classic advantage of the big retailers is that they are able to negotiate exceptions. That screws smaller stores, because even if they can match the price they aren't allowed to advertise it.

This has been going on for a long time, you should hear my grandfathers stories about selling boats in the 60s.

At least the fact that Apple isn't making any exceptions is a little more honest, but it doesn't really help any of us.
