    I tried Apple UK's site late one night and got the message that it would be back shortly. I didn't check it again until just now but it looks like the prices of the Macbook, Macbook Pro and Mac Mini have all gone up by between 10 and 20 pounds. Oh and the iPod touch has gone up by £3. Anyone notice other changes? Anyone got an explanation?

    On January 1st 2010 the rate of VAT in the UK went up from 15% to 17.5%

    Apple (like many other retailers) adjusted their prices accordingly to include the extra tax
