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.

our apple reseller within european union forces consumers to buy "additional year of warranty" if we are consumers (i.e. not companies). So if you want to buy a mac here and you are not a company, you simply have to pay additional year of warranty in addition to 5-10% difference in price and simply won't sell you a mac without that additional year of warranty.

So no, this is not the case.

This is one of the things why I decided, that I won't buy another mac. I have powerbook g4 and i'm going back to classic manufacturers.
