    why does apple overprice things

    i still dont get why the ipad is that expensive

    but whats with the new shuffle and nano

    the old nano is better than this 3x3 touch screen

    and the shuffle is the same as the previous(i think)and its 50 dollars for a 2 gb model!?
    i can buy a better MP3 player for half the price

    The ipod touch and Apple TV i would say are the right price

    what do u think?
    thnx

    The iPod Touch Prices are still bad.

    8GB - $179
    32GB - $249
    64gb - $299


    Apple TV is nice tho at $99. But really, its basically a station that connects stuff together.

    Where did you find those prices? The prices listed on store.apple.com are:

    8GB - $229
    32GB - $299
    64GB - $399

    I think it's a great price. I was thinking about getting a Roku box. It sells for about the same price, but only does one thing - play NetFlix movies. Apple TV does so much more.

    It's called the 'Apple Tax.' And trust me, it isn't nearly as bad on their iPhone or iPod or iPad lines as it is on the Macs.

    hes right
    yeah its regardless i spent the 300 on a 32 GB preorder mainly becasue:

    • 8GB is not enoguh space for my music plus apps and a movie or two. I had the original 8GB ipod touch and at the end of its life before it was stolen it was getting pretty full, and
    • HD recording. even if i had a bit of space on the 8GB, a few minutes of HD video would kill it instantly. I plan to use it for youtube videos so it would help if i could keep everything on one device.

    It's not nearly as bad as it used to be.

    And the updated Apple TV's price is really expensive in the UK:

    $99 in US
    £99 in UK

    Apple's currency converter is soo wrong
