Just wanted to know the price difference in various countries when compared with the US store. I was recently considering buying a Mac Mini for my parents as a thank you gift for paying my university and found out the extremely higher prices the Mexican Apple Stores have. I was looking to buy the 2.53 Mini priced at $799 in the American store and the price in the Mexican EDUCATIONAL DISCOUNT store is 12,489 pesos which amount to 987.817455 U.S. dollars, without the discount, the price goes up to $1067 USD! That's $268 USD more than the equivalent in the US! I realize that the currency rates may have fluctuated from when the Minis were updated but that wasn't that long ago. This is why I won't be able to surprise the old folks with a Mac until I make a trip to the US, which won't be for Christmas. So what's your country's Apple woes?
