Good deals have now become available on Apple desktops through Amazon, propelling the Mac Pro to become the third most popular computer sold through the US retailer in the category.

Amazon has slashed an impressive $200 off the price of the professional workhorse Mac, $2,299 will get you an Apple Mac Pro MB871LL/A Desktop. An additional $849 (itself a $50 discount on book price) will fetch an Apple LED Cinema Display 24-Inch (though this latter product’s not sold by Amazon, but a third-party vendor).

Industry speculation currently claims new iMac and Mac mini models are imminent for release at this time. However, Amazon disocunts on these models are slight in comparison to the Mac Pro blessing on offer today. This could give rise to speculation Apple may plan an upgrade to its top-tier Mac, which last saw a significant upgrade in March 2009.
