Looking to buy a pair of 2010 Elan 888. Is thier much of a differance with the 2011 apex. Found the 888 for $399 vs apex for $599.

yes, there is quite a bit of difference. The new Apex is softer in the tip, and it makes the ski smoother and more compliant in bumps and in crud, and even a touch more stable. The old 888 was one of my favorite skis, and the Apex is significantly better. Easily worth the extra $200, IMO.  It was my everyday ski last spring.
