Australia's Commonwealth Bank, inspired by The Economist's "big mac index" has created an iPod index(http://biz.yahoo.com/rb/070118/ipod_currencies.html?.v=1) to try to show how various countries' currencies are really valued against each other. They chose the 4 GB nano to compare. Brazil comes in at #1 with a nano costing over $300, and Canada is the cheapest place in the world to buy said nano.

Interesting, because it seems that unlike localised Big Mac pricing, it appears that the Nano is not quite as sensitively priced to local conditions. The cheapest Big Macs are in China; whereas the cheapest Nanos are in Canada...

Hong Kong is the 2nd best place.

Does it go to follow that Hong Kong is a good place to buy a MBP?
