Mathgroup, Now that NeXT, Inc. has decided to unbundle Mathematica (except for academic purchasers) the Sales Department at Wolfram tells me that they are considering charging $1295 for Mathematica for the NeXT machine. I think this price is too high. It is out of line with the cost of the machine, $4995. I can just afford the machine itself and the thought of paying an additional 26% for my first software purchase is really hard to take. If you good people agree I would urge you to write to Wolfram and make your opinions known. They tell me their price is not firm yet and will consider comments from current and potential customers.
