    yes this is a very good point..
    maybe they'll even see sense and drop the price of the damn thing and bring it inline with the US cost..
    its also about time they started bringing out some useful accessories for the ipod touch-like a CAMERA dammit..or even a voice recorder..
    yeah right..

    The Belgian store is also being updated, so it's probably not the iPhone.

    i bought a macbook last week, on Friday as soon as Leopard was released. Does anyone know if I can take this back and exchange it for one of the updated ones? Or am i stuffed for being too excited about Leopard?

    You have 14 days to take it back, you won't have any problem changing it :)

    I ordered a MacBook 5 minutes before it went down.. If anything's updated I win the award for the fastest obsolete Mac ever.

    Did you order the updated MacBook as it was already on the website before it went down?

    Wasn't that kind of silly as the MacBook update hit the US store yesterday which adds Santa Rosa and the GMA X3100 graphics and will likely hit the UK store today.

    I suspect it is to fix the pricing errror on the macbok page. When I changed the hard disk for the macbook from 120 to 160 the price went down by £60:D Unfortunately the correct price was shown on the checkout page:(

    The update was already on the UK store, so it wasn't silly in anyway, how was Brainstorm91 to know the store was going down?

    You'd think they could do that "on the fly" and not take the whole store down for going on 45 minutes now. :p

    Yes, I bought a Mac mini last Friday and I was unsure whether to get the mini or an iMac. They told me if I wasn't happy with it, I could change it within 14 days, it even has the return date on the Apple Store receipt.

    Do you still have all the packaging for it?

    The Apple Chat Staff said it was just "background maintenance".

    There web designers must be rubbish.

    The store is down so often, the people they employ must be really crap at there jobs.
