    I just configured an upscale Mac Pro in Apple's online store. In the US store, the price is US $5952. The exact same system in the Canadian store is CA $6944. Converting to US funds, the price is US $7247. That is, the Canadian customer pays 22% more for the identical machine. Now granted that the Canadian dollar has gained a lot on the greenback in recent months, but it isn't like Apple Canada had warehouses full of Mac Pro inventory to move. And with free trade between the two countries, there are no import duties on computer systems artificially inflating the price. What gives?

    What gives is that there are 3 threads about this issue already. Maybe these questions could be better answered by Apple?

    Do Canadians think anyone on this forum can do anything about prices charged by Apple:rolleyes:

    No, it's just that nobody seems to read or search first for prior threads before posting their rant. It gets boring.
