    Do you think Apple will up their prices or absorb the extra 2.5%?

    Hopefully not. Can't afford more on apple products. Then again I liked it when the VAT went down to 15%. Sort of break even for apple then.

    Apple raised the prices of their products in online store when our VAT went from 22% to 23%.

    Apple UK dropped their prices when VAT went down to 15% and put them back up again when it returned to 17.5%, so why would they absorb the VAT rise this time around?
