    Lol don't count on it! They're probably just doing the UK store up to look more like the US one.

    Price cuts hopefully!

    More likely: Store maintenance! :(

    Well the Austrian store is also down as well as the German and Dutch. Perhaps something bigger, plus it is in the middle of the day they perfer to do maintance late at night.

    All down:

    Germany
    Holland
    Sweden
    Austrian
    UK
    Ireland
    Norway
    Italy
    Spain
    France
    Switzerland
    Finland

    + probably many more.

    The UK store had already been updated to look like the US one.

    I suspect it'll have something to do with iPhone. It's due to go on sale in November in the UK, so they could start to take pre-orders. (Doesn't look like this now, as most stores - apart from US and Canadian - are now down).

    Alternatively the UK store has gone down, and the others will follow suit shortly, and it's Leopard-related.

    Fair enough but my statement was refering to UK times only.

    That's the first thing that crossed my mind, although I'm secretly hoping for a smaller MBP :)

    Did any of the European sites have the EA games that have made their way onto the American Apple site. Hopefully it is more than that.

    iPhone can be ruled out - Switzerland's not getting it until late 2008 and the Swiss store is also down.

    This is the normal European maintenance-window - they have these every other month or so, always the same pattern, always the same time.

    Anyone know why Apple has to shut the whole thing down whenever they change anything? It's 2007 after all!

    I'll never pre-order an Apple product again... They always end up in stores long before all the pre-orders are fulfilled. My touch still hasn't shipped - and it's already available in non-Apple retail here.

    Yes, it's the European servers in Luxemburg that are undergoing maintenance.
