The UK Apple Store says 399 Euros for the low end Mini. That equals about $519 according to Google. So why does the US Apple Store sell them for $599? Being in the US can I buy a Mini from the UK store to save $80????

Kinda weird on the Apple site right now.

The front page says the mini starts at $599.

When you click the "buy now", it takes you to the store page where they still list the 1.5 Solo and the 1.66 Duo, however the prices are $549 and $749, respectively.

I'll wait until the dust settles.

EDIT - OK, the dust settled. The minis are $599 and $799 respectively. Don't know where the $549/$749 prices came from. Maybe the EDU store prices got mixed up or something.

The UK store is unlikely to list prices in Euros being as we use Pounds here. At current exchange rates 399GBP is around 750USD. This includes taxes, but it's till quite a lot more than the US price.
