I'm thinking about buying a MBP very soon, and have just got off the phone with a sales representative from the apple UK education store. The model I'm after is a 15" MBP with the 2.8Ghz CPU, 4GB of RAM and a standard 500GB hard drive. Apple UK store lists that as £1699 to the GP, I was quoted £1444.40 which works out at a smidge under 15% less. For kicks, I clicked "select" on the apple website to see what upgrades there were fot it and how much they were. My question to you all is this: Why is a 4GB (from 4GB installed to 8GB installed) memory upgrade £799?! I couldn't find 8GB of laptop RAM for as much as that anywhere to save my life, so are Apple just really screwing people on this? I love the MB's, the MBP is easily the most beautiful and flawless notebook computer I've ever used, but I want some sort of explanation as to why this memory upgrade is so expensive before my view of Apple as one of the best retaillers ever gets tainted.
