I was frustrated today looking at the Canadian prices for computers. here are some stats. For a base MacBook. Prices are according to Apple stores in each country and then the exchange rate as of Nov. 1 Funds - cost - If US pricing - % overcharging. US - $1099 - 1099 - 0.00% Australia - $1599 - 1199.67 - 33.29% Canada - $1249 - 1049.08 - 19.06% uk - 699 GBP - 527.72 - 32.46% germany - 1049 EUR - 760.72 - 37.90% japan - 139800 yen - 126209.6 - 10.77% Hong kong - 8600 HKD - 8525.43 - 0.87% Korea - 1190000 KR - 993,695.36 - 19.76% Of course there is tarrif issues and the like, but NOT in Canada, we have free trade with the US. However these tarifs (if the exist in your country) probably have not changed in the last 2 years as the American Dollar has dropped. Have you seen the price of Apple computers come down in your country in the last 2 years? If not why? OK it may be pointed out that the computers are made internationally and therefore are not reflective of pricing in the US, then WHY has the American price not gone up? Is it the international Apple communities responsibility to pay more so that the American Apple community can pay less? I am feeling ripped off.
