This is just odd, normally you take the US price, half it add 17.5% for VAT and another £20 for the privilege of buying Apple in the UK.

This time they have added £70 for the UK factor

This might explain why the AppleTV isn't taking on in the UK?

Anyway I won't be buying one in the UK.

Just buy a 40Gb model from the refurb section, add atvflash for a few pounds more, use an external usb drive and you have all the storage you need for less than the price of a 160Gb model. I have done this, any questions just ask.
