After a week apple distributors here in South Africa finally acknowledges the existence of the Mac mini and iPod shuffle. The thing that I would like to know is how much more expensive is non-apple retail channels that the apple store in your areas? The cheapest store I can find over here is www.zastore.co.za, it has the Mac mini listed for R4579, converting that back to dollar the smallest Mac mini cost $750. I know there are cost involved in getting it here ect, but $250, how does that work???
