Mac Pro not available in Europe. New iMac can't have more memory fitted unless you get the 27" one. Mac Mini - an interesting idea - but when I upgraded a few years ago from my G4 Tower an iMac Refurb was much better value. Starting to think about a new laptop - current MacBook is starting to show it's age, but the MacBook Air screen is too small, and the MacBook Pro is too expensive...
We had a week of silent / unwanted almost abusive calls earlier this year. So I don't think there are any lessons learned.
If we're going to frack can we at least follow Norway's lead and think about the future rather than immediate gains?

Let's see you've paid $199 or you've paid $499 for something that does similar things.
You will be less likely to complain about the more expensive one - or excuse it some how when it doesn't quite do what you want. You have to justify the expense - even to yourself.
I had problems with my update.
Ran over night no problem - but on restarting I had no internal audio devices available, and it took ages for the mouse buttons and key board to start working. I'm talking 10s of minutes.
Did a system restore from before the update from Time Machine, and then installed again with no problems - did have to reinstall safari for some reason after the system restore, as that had decided to stop working.
Been with Virgin Mobile for years
Now being pretty much screwed by the tariff changes.
