Apple Apple have updated the Mac Mini. It now sports an aluminium (no, I am not going to spell it "aluminum") enclosure, an HDMI port, an internal PSU (no power-brick!) and oddly, an SD card slot in the back. There's also an access hole on the bottom to change the RAM easily.

Don't worry, when ObaMAO rolls out the VAT here we'll probably be paying more than you guys.

the Yoo Ess Aye has had a sales tax (VAT is a variant of sales tax) across a majority of it's states for time immemorial. You are either remarkably ignorant or trolling.

Sales taxes at most places dont come even close to VAT rates. Also vat is applied more than once during the journey from manuf plant to destination. Americans now tend to order online to bypass sales tax. Personally I think a revolt has long been due in the US for all this legalized stealing.

No I'm afraid you're the "ignoramus", way to demostrate it!...Sales tax in the US vary by state and even county and/or town/city..here in Crook County, err I mean Cook County, there is quite a high sales tax rate for the US. The combined tax rate, (city + county) for Chicago (the largest city in Cook County) is 10.25%, and as the other poster stated, is only applied at point of sale and not along the manufacturing process.

Oh and here's some reference material to read...but I'm sure you already have it memorized and something is wrong with my eyes...http://tax.illinois.gov/Publications/Sales/strrm/07012008/ST-25.pdf

chip chip cheerio!
