Apple really do take the piss in Europe :

Logitech MX518 Gaming-Grade

80€ from the Apple store.

LOGITECH Souris MX518 Gaming-Grade Optical Mouse

30€ from an on-line vendor.

FFS !!

I'm not quite sure what the title has to do with your subject but why get mad.

Just buy it where it's the cheapest. Apple is known to mark up their ram, so I don't get angry, I just buy it somewhere else. That's the joy of capitalism

Taking the piss ~= extracting urine

See def 5 here

A markup is one thing. Factory fitted RAM is another thing. Charging nearly three times the price for the same product is taking the piss.

I've only ever bought one Apple computer, but I know not to order extra RAM or a larger hard drive from the Apple store.

‘Taking the piss’ = joking. Just in case you weren’t actually taking the piss with that question.

Ha, I just got the internet equivalent of you throwing your hands up in disgust.

BTW, who knew a search for thumbs up on google would be questionably unsafe for work.

I don't even dare to turn off "Moderate SafeSearch" while I'm at the office.

I swear I have it on, and I'm still getting some crazy stuff (a pile of naked, I assume female bodies in a dorm hallway?).

Well, good for you. Must suck to be so superior that you have to trumpet it from the rooftop, to the minions below.
Why is there always money for war, but none for education?

Just NEVER buy more than the default amount of RAM from Apple. ALL of their RAM upgrades are priced ridiculously. Everywhere. Buy your upgrade RAM from someone who wants your business and be done with it.

Even the HDD upgrades are outrageously overpriced. Hell, when my sister bought her 7200 a million years ago she knew this.

Be warned glenn, with your new stars I'm calling you Lone Star from now on. Think of Lord Helmet's voice from Spaceballs when you read it.

Edit: Odd, your post is listed as after mine, yet appears before it. Time traveling post jack?

My Schwartz is as big as anyone's! I'm working on a variety of stars and at the moment I'm on a Texas theme.

Anyway, I don't know why the hampstor got things mixed up in the posting list, but it's not something I did.
