As widely discussed, Steve Jobs (CEO Apple) announced the “Mac Mini” – a $499 computer running Apple OSX. I’m pretty sure this will be the bring Apple to the masses (just like when Apple produced a Windows compatible iPod).
However, the bit that’s already bugging me is this: How come the “$499 Mac” will cost £339 here in the UK? My maths tells me that at the current rates, $499 = £265. That’s quite a difference in price difference (about 20%).
