Don't feel bad they're over priced in the USA too. Always have been, that's how Apples become the largest company with the highest margins compared to the competition. Windows PC makers operate on approx 7% while Apple gets approx 30%. They are very clever at marketing. It's as simple as that. They've got people convinced. Apples brilliant marketing success is their greatest achievement.On the belgium apple website the mbp retina is about 2299 and i see in the usa the mbp is 2199$. Also 1 euro is the same as 1,25$...
