Apple This week saw the introduction of various new Apple products. Everybody has their own opinions on these new products, and websites all over the world saw enough discussions about the integrated video card of the Mini, the 'HiFi-ness' of the iPod HiFi, and more. Another issue, however, which got considerable less attention, was that of pricing. And no, I'm not talking about expensive-or-not (God, no). I'm talking about price differences between the US and Europe. And quite frankly, it's pissing me off. Note: This is this week's Sunday Eve Column.

Just what I wanted to say myself. The warranty laws in Norway is like this aswell, perhaps even more strict than EU ones. And in addition to that theres always been like companies set different prices for different countries compared to how the financial situation is in that particular country. It's just easier to see it now when we can put each (next to identical) store next to each other and compare.

Now I don't really think that the Mac prices are that bad at all (except from upgrading RAM and similar in AppleStore...I rather buy it online), atleast not for the Mac's I got (iBook G4 and iMac Core Duo). Mac's are amazing machines, with a great OS; and hardware that competitors actually don't offer at lower prices (I have yet to see a "PC iMac" that's cheaper than the iMac). You get what you pay for. With Mac's you get great quality! ---I should note this is just my personal opinion. What others might think is up to them. I dont want to start over the whole OS war thingie...---
