last song i bought on itunes from my australian account was US$2.50
if i had an american account it would have been 0.99US OR AUD $0.90
Of course. I was just using a straight conversion as a rough guide for our posters from other countries.

Nice, been waiting to pick up an Express for a family member. That one is overdue for an update.

I'm hoping it's just taxes and import duties, they are in Australian currency...

Totally agree.

In fact I remember having a Latitude D800 at work back in March 2003, which had a 1920x1200 resolution display at 15,4".

It shouldn't be too hard to have a decent resolution in 2012.

the easiest conversion from australian prices is to divide by 2, and that is the USD price

i have a friend who will fly to the states to buy for a few different people, and bring them back, the savings more than covering the $2000 airfare

Boo No Mac Mini upgrade. Its the one I was actually considering. Want to get rid of my ugly office PC and move it to the Mac Platform. Needs to have USB3 so an updated Mac is the only option (bar continuing with the Hackintosh)

i'm guessing the "Pro" label will justify its name again soon

I was hoping for an update on the Extreme :/ I have one that's been a bit flaky since a near-miss lightning strike a few weeks back, but was hoping for a new model before I replaced it.

I can't wait to see what the new Airs have to offer.


Also, maybe a new TB display with USB 3.0 ports?
Just because Apple updates it does not make your current Mac mini obsolete.

EDIT: Aargh, Airport Express only?? Nuts.
11ac for all those Apple products with 11ac?
The Time Capsule was more or less just upgraded, i honestly don't see any need for something new.
If anything, the express needs a chipset upgrade to match the extreme and TC.

No more or less than the old administration. Apple doesn't upgrade just to do it. They wait for a real reason and when that reason is ready to be on the market.

Yes they have pushed the devices in terms of the ads etc but that's because that is the better tool for creating brand mind share to bring over the PC folks which is vital if they are going to grow as a company. Nothing more or less. It doesn't mean that anyone at the company is dismissing the computer side etc.

Of course those that hate the whole iDevice stuff are going to continue to hate it, those that are all gaga for their Pro Tower are going to continue to think that Apple is dismissing them etc and become a toy company. And when something does change, now that Steve is dead and gone they will say that it is because Tim isn't a hater blah blah forgetting that tech doesn't change overnight and all this stuff and even next years stuff could be things that Steve started before he left and put Tim in charge

Unfortunately those laptops are long gone. You will struggle to find a laptop with 1920x1200 16:10 resolution these days. There was a dip for a while and many laptops have been coming out with 1366x768, even 15" ones. It seems that higher resolution is back in vogue on the PC side again and there are more higher resolution displays available, but they are only 1920x1080 (16:9). Great for watching movies, but not as great as 16:10 for working.

the MBP price increased by $400 of the current mbp price in australia so i'm guessing the "pro" line will be "pro" again meaning it'll be the first do adopt the retina display. could explain such a major price increase of the mbp line

Time Capsule could gain a Thunderbolt port?

Why? Why would a router need a Thunderbolt port?
