    They got more expensive. The education discount went down from $100 to $50.

    The education discount has nothing to do with how they advertise their price to the general public. One got cheaper, the other two got upgraded. Don't listen to and expect rumors to come true; they cannot all be fact.

    meh. now that i have seen the beauty of the new ones, i could never buy just a white one. I had around $1000 saved up, and my parents were going to pay for 100 and give me a loan for the other 150. But now i will need over a 200 loan, so idk if i can get it. :(

    But the price of the cheapest Apple laptop has still increased. And in the US, it appears to have dropped by $100. How does that work? Also, when products are updated, as they have just been, the price usually remains the same, or drops, even when the spec has improved. The latest iMac update saw the processor speed increase, as well as the RAM speed, but the price remained the same. So it seems odd that the UK price has increased, even if it is by only £20.
