Apple Store or Micro Anvika
26 February 2006
I really like the Apple Store (UK) website so that's where I went to find out how much a pair of speakers cost. £129 apparently.
Not bad but a lot of money for a 2.1 speaker set after all. For once I was clever and did a comparison before I got my wallet out. I went to Micro Anvika's online webstore and found exactly "the same speakers for £110":http://www.microanvika.com/MAC/product.asp?TXT=INFO&PNO=HRM19611. That's a "£19":http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=19+british+pounds+in+us+dollars difference.
Keep that in mind the next time you carelessly buy your next accessory from the Apple Store.
In writing this up I notice another nuisance about the Apple Store site. You can't copy-and-paste the URL to products because the URL becomes invalid when your session expires. Sort it out Apple!
My friend Ben Mason points out that you can get the same speakers from Ebuyer.com for £94+£5 shipping
