and the price sticker on the airport boxes is 695, this is bought from the
apple centre at ANU, approved systems and their apple shopfront at woden mall
will also sell them possibly cheaper than apple's website. (I bought my
airport card for my powerbook at the beginning of the year for $180 rather
than the $200 the apple website sold them for at a local apple dealership (one
of the buzz centres)) Ring up the approved shop front (apple centre) at woden
and ask maybe.
