Exchange rates have altered a lot since the current iMacs were released. In Australia the exchange rate was nearly at parity with US dollars and hence computer imports were cheap, however since the global economic crisis it has depreciated to 0.67 cents per US dollar!!!! that is over 30% decrease. Hence US products are now dearer in Australia, SO my QUESTION is do you think Apple will adjust the prices to a large degree, e.g. the current top of the line iMac (3.06GHZ) is $2999 in Australia, will it go up to about $3999 or even $4999??? with the new model? I am just thinking maybe i should just buy the current $2999 iMac NOW rather than wait and pay an extra $1000 or so dollars for the new one just because of exchange rate movements over the past 5 months .... then get snow leopard separate ... I am willing to pay $500 more but not over as then Apple computers would be just a total expensive rip off, i can build an excellent machine for $3500 ! Any thoughts/opinions?
