That's for multi-quote Dave. (...and his 'multi-functional' doorstop.) *I don't know why I'm 'whining'...it's not like people *do* that when a machine has gone from well under £400 from the PPC days to £645 in these Intel days. *whoop, it's had it's crappy integrated crappics replaced...for (gasps*) more integrated crappics... *whoo...Lemon Bon Bon.

There you go. Just an 'illusion.' (*Looks at the sky.) I think that's a good idea. Let's eliminate all the entry models. So that way we can just buy Apple's 'top of the line.' In effect the 'top end' becomes the entry model... *Looks blankly. Lemon Bon Bon.
Well, 'stiff'. Not 'unreasonable'.
*Wipes tears from eyes.
Sure. Whatever you say Dave.
Yeah. Blame it on the Chinese.
Blame it on the PPC.
I didn't think it would be Apple's fault... And I thought McVities digestive biscuit Christmas 'tins' were expensive...

When was the last time Apple offered a 'good deal' for its desktops?
Uhm. I'd reach and say the inclusion of a 27 inch monitor in the iMac once the 27 inch monitor filters down to the sub-1k model. *Don't hold your breath.
*fek me. The mac mini started at under £400 originally. Now it's £249 more at least. I can't be arsed to work out the % increase. Who cares? It's expensive. Put the 'premium' (let's be polite) 24 inch monitor with it that Apple also sell. ...
