    New Nano; are these people having a laugh?!!
    Just been browsing this website - had to laugh... but in an angered way!.

    http://uk.insight.com/apps/nbs/index...=200050&M=&P=5

    £118.66 for a 4GB 3G Nano (the latest model)
    £152.74 for an 8GB 3G Nano (the latest model)

    What gives these ripoff merchants, the idea that they can sell at these prices?!. Are they OBLIVIOUS to the Apple RRP, and the rest of the iPod resale market?.

    WHAT A JOKE!... am I wrong?. Oh, and the 2G 4GB Nano, is STILL marked up at £129 - now I find this odd, because:

    A/ This is the OLD price for the OLD model, but they didn't inflate that price; that was the RRP
    B/ They should have dropped this price, and given the PROPER RRP of the new Nanos, not an inflated one!!.

    Disgusted. Corporate scum.

    Its called free trade. If people buy them at that price, then they will sell at that price.

    Let it go.

    I understand that, was just letting off steam, but still astounded!. Greed will destroy them eventually - at least Apple are a fair company.

    the shop / website can sell at what ever price they like. but it makes sense to most companies to sell at RRP or around that area.

    its up to the website at the end of the day

    ...and you jump right into my thread, insult me, and say that *I* have issues?. I thought that you said you were using [IGNORE] button on me, last time you said something in my general direction?.

    Do so.
