Apple have stolen my wallet!

Or rather, have emptied already this month!

I just bought a lovely shiny new MBP, a 1 TB Time Capsule and a dongle to connect said MBP to a VGA projector and now they want another $29 to upgrade my shiny new MBP to a shiny new MBP?

Upgrades

I bought my MacBook in America a couple of weeks ago and was pleasantly surprised to find that I was eligible for the upgrade here in Britian.
