Index 1 In July 23, the Education Apple Store in Taiwan apparently encountered erros in their price tag of Mac mini with Snow Leopard Server. If you switched its built-in memory from 4GB to 8GB, the price would drop from NT$34,900 to 19,900 instead of being raised as normal.

The news immediately spreaded up like crazy on the internet, especially via the social network Plurk. People swarmed in and made orders, they were even buying multiple machines in a single deal.

▲The problem web page of Apple Mac mini Server.

▲Successful order been made.

▲Contents of order been altered by Apple.

The Mac mini price tag error had not been fixed from about noon until late at night. However, many users who made the orders found out that Apple had modified their ordering records. The erroneous price tag was changed back to NT$47,710, even the product name been modified to "MAC MINI CTO" without any notice.

Taiwan users were outraged by Apple's action. The whole event is much like Dell's 19" LCD monitor trouble in June last year. In both case Taiwan consumer regulators have ordred the company to honor the price typos, Dell ended up apologized and offered discounts.

But in this time, it's been four days and Apple have not made any apology or formal announcement to the public.

Update: In July 27, the consumer regulators and Apple have made a negotiation.  And buyers who can be proved as academic users will be offered the special price NT$19,900 for only one unit of Mac mini Server.
Finally, Apple made an apology to the public, and says they value the academic users as much importance. Hopefully the whole thing has come to an end.

(好吧,因為Apple標錯價事件遲未解決,某位T小編自告奮勇翻成英文報導,還良心掙扎了一下,還好剛剛有網友回報事件已經落幕,Apple協議以19,900每人一部機器出貨,這篇英文就給大家見笑,若要轉載或修正,依然歡迎XD)

正確來說只有符合教育商店的購買資格,也就是:
"大專院校學生或大專院校、中、小學各年級的老師、行政人員或職員,每學期一部桌上型電腦"
才能拿到19900這個價格,不是所有下訂的都有,篩選資格之後,我相信蘋果也不會虧太多
