UK755.50 per 

for a MacBook Core 2 Duo, though that was last year and the prices appear 
to have dropped.  The high-end MB now is US1399 / ~UK714 (plus tax, 
shipping, etc.).

Looking at the education store, the low-end MBP is US$1799 / ~UK918 (+
tax, shipping).

Hm, that looks fairly tempting.  My 7-year old Linux system is starting to 
show its age.

Too bad I don't know someone in education in Oregon State, which has no 
sales tax*.
