On the other hand, computers are staying the same, with no change at all in the iMacs, the MacBookPro or the white MacBooks, and only a 500 baht increase in the black MacBook, which may simply be local: shop around and you may find better.
Likewise the Mac mini range is priced the same as are the Cinema Displays. The MacPro (not in the chart) has both the 4-core and the 8-core version. While there used to be only the one -- middle of the range -- machine on sale here, they are all listed now at basic prices of 84,590 for the 2.66Ghz Quad Core; 103,500 for the 2.8GHz, 8-core; and 165,990 for the 3Ghz 8-core. All of these are highly configurable of course.
Although the MacBookAir had the press release this week, and these are listed, I have not yet seen one in the shops.
It is the iPod range where there are changes. As mentioned above, the 32G iPod touch is available and this is at 19,190 baht, and the others (8G and 16G) have come down in price to go with this. I found that two prices were cited, but the chart will have the higher price shown. I am unable to confirm that the lower prices (10,690 and 14,590 baht) are for the latest iPod touch: images and specifications miss the Mail program, for example. The iStudio in Siam Paragon does have the latest version: 11,390 and 15,290 baht respectively, which are both about 1,000 to 1,200 baht cheaper than a couple of weeks ago.
None of the other iPods has changed in price according to the data I have.
