Why are we still paying considerably higher prices for Apple gear in Australia compared to the USA? AppleTV in USA = $252 AUD AppleTV in AUS = $449 AUD MacBook Air in USA = $1983 AUD MacBook Air in AUS = $2499 AUD I just don't understand? Why? Shipping to Australia from China surely couldn't cost more than shipping to the USA, aren't we closer to China than the USA? Not to mention the insanely huge trading happening between China and Aus when it comes to our minerals and other exports. Tax? 10% goods and services tax... still doesn't match the prices.. WHY? $500 more for the same Macbook Air, a whopping $200 more for the Apple TV !? I just can't believe it. Why don't we have iTunes movie/tvshow purchases or rentals? Is it too hard for the Apple execs to make the arrangements for this in Australia? What about the iPhone? wtf is the hold up? is it really that hard? We only have some of the most state of the art cell phone networks in the entire world. It's not like we're a third world country here, we have a thriving industry, excellent infrastructure and the population... If your Australian, and pissed... post here. If your not Australian, post here anyway I'm getting sick of paying extreme prices for Apple gear. Surely if they sorted their pricing structure out they would sell more gear in this country! I want answers!
