    $45 in Canada vs $39 in the US...
    Last time I checked Canadian Dollar is stronger...
    Glad we weren't ripped off on the pricing of mini itself :mad:

    BTW, White mini is 2 weeks wait right off the bat...

    Surprised the iPad mini was the same price as apple.com. Paid $900 CAD for my 64 gb iPhone 5...

    Tax nation...

    Yup.. iPhone was $50 more on the tag plus our outrageous sales taxes... 13% here in Ontario ontop of your already taxed income as high as 46.4%!!!

    ----------

    More like $1000... Over $100 in sales tax

    Well apple.com still doesn't have them unlocked. And where I live (moved from Montreal a couple years ago) it costs 1500 for the 64 gb. Also because of that, resale value here is incredible. I plan on selling my 5 next summer for about the same price I bought it, in time for the next one :)

    No. Just pointing out the fact.

    It's not about the absolute price, it's the percentage.

    $6 on something that's $39, we are talking about an additional 15.38% markup.

    If it costs 15.38% more to do business in Canada on top of our higher taxation we have an issue.
