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.

$999 = £679

£679 + 20% (UK VAT tax) = £815
£815 + 14% (UK AAPL tax) = £929

$999 = €818
€818 + 18% (ES VAT tax) = €965
€965 + 17% (ES AAPL tax) = €1,119

As a pro-social spanish guy, I praise apple for taxing us higher so they can give even more social benefits to the community...

Actually on the Apple Store the Mac Mini starts at £649.00 Inluding VAT (Sales Tax)

Also VAT in the UK is 17.5% currently.

So your figures are out by a fair bit - but I agree that like for like products are more expensive outside of the USA even allowing for currency fluctations and sales tax.

All the prices I displayed are for the server mac mini, so figures should be ok except for the UK VAT...
