    Red face Mac mini 1GB Upgrade
    The price of a 1GB Upgrade for the Mac mini on the US Apple Store is $ 325 - on the UK Store it is an incredible $1056 ( 561 )

    What on earth is going on? - I hope this is a mistake !

    561 ??? And I thought the 420,- on the German Apple store were expensive!
    No really, Apple's RAM pricing is a big ripoff...Do they have genuine diamonds on them or what?!?

    They did just recently lower their prices on the Mac Mini upgrade stuff.. so you might check again, and probably write them also to make sure that it is correct.. that does seem like way way too much.

    I was looking into this on the UK store site and its currently at 220.01 (plus tax) for the 1Gb upgrade. Works out at 318EUR or approx $415
