I got my TiBook from Computer Warehouse, with one of the first shipments to the UK... indeed ahead of alot of the U.S. people, where they were all stuck in a big hanger in Alaska or something..... heh heh hehOriginally posted by Horne
Good spot Sir.
Now, where should we UK punters order from to get them first.
Any ideas, is Apple the too obvious an answer?
Getting them first is compensation for them Apple charging us $150 - $480 more than the US retail price even before we pour even more money into tony blair's cash VAT ontop of itI got my TiBook from Computer Warehouse, with one of the first shipments to the UK... indeed ahead of alot of the U.S. people, where they were all stuck in a big hanger in Alaska or something..... heh heh heh

Given the fact that site lists the dual Ghz for $2499.00 the ACTUAL price it should be is £1632.48 + VAT. If the past is anything to go by we'll be paying £1799 - £2099 for it. Mindyou with the iMac price reductions in the UK being based on the exchange rate drop of the $, maybe we'll get the dual Ghz for £1699 + VAT.
I'm going to be saving for a CPU upgrade and ignore the idea of getting a new mac for quite some time if apple don't start to do something about the hugely inflated UK prices. Earlier in the year it worked out at about $50 - $100 more than the US retail price, that's acceptable because it covers apple for fluctuations in the exchange rate. We're currently paying nearly $500 more than we should for the "Fastest" model from the range introduced earlier in the year.
A good idea..... but what happens if PC manufacturers did the same on their Dual machines....... the perceived speed difference would remain the same.....Originally posted by wake up Jobs!!!
u know how apple could use these specs to boost sales? Right now when a peecee user walks into my local applestore, he says "god look how slow those computers are!" even though they do not know about the mhz myth. Apple could combine the processor speeds since it is a dp and say "well now we sell a 1.64ghz (867), a 2ghz (1ghz), and a 2.50ghz(1.25ghz) instead of telling the processor speeds for each processor. You would not beleve how much that would boost sales!
Depends if they're releasing it at 9am EST (or this EDT thingy) or 9am PST.......(Apple) 9am EST in New York is 2pm in London... not that far away.....Originally posted by Horne
I know we only have a short while now, but one more question:
Surely they cannot close the Apple store all afternoon, so we must see these things (pictures) pretty soon.
Anyone know roughly how long it takes to update the applestore website.
I think I need to go out and do something.......
