    Ok i'm starting to get very angry now.

    The 2.1Ghz was yesterday £699 inc VAT

    Today, after Apple announced a $100 price drop, it's now £719 inc VAT

    ARE THEY TAKING THE F***ING P*** OR WHAT?

    I think this has been discussed already. The base model has a Super Drive in it, rather than the Combo drive. To my knowledge at least.

    Fair point, I hadn't spotted this.

    Still angry though. A lot of angry people around right now.

    Apologies, I only saw one about Australian pricing and another had been buried.

    It's a serious enough problem to warrant many more threads though.

    I agree.

    **** Apple. **** jobs. **** everything. Apple lost a customer in me today, and in many others too. **** them.

    I had the money waiting. If it wasn't for the lack of FireWire and ridiculous UK pricing I'd have ordered one already.

    I'm now considering a hackintosh if you have any suggestions please let me know.
