Hmmm... at the current currency exchange rate, I could get a 7% off any Powerbook if I drove an hour and bought it south of the border. That figure goes as high as 14% if I take into account much higher sales tax in Quebec, Canada). Of course, I might have to toss away the beautifull box before driving back home through the border. Am I getting this wrong? I've always been terrible at acounting. Here are some numbers: Top of the line Powerbook Prices: 2,999 USD or 4,299 CAD (Converts to 3,215 USD) Mid-range Powerbook Prices: 1,999 USD or 2,849 CAD (Converts to 2,131 USD) Today's Currency Rates: 1 CAD = 0.748032 USD 1 USD = 1.33684 CAD Canada's total sales tax* (by province, GST+PST): Ontario: 15% (Edited. Thanks kafiene) Quebec: 15.025% British Columbia: 15% (Edited. Thanks KenWedin) Alberta: 7% Saskatchewan: 7% Manitoba: 7% Newfoundland: 15% New Brunswick: 15% Nova Scotia: 15% Prince Edward Island: 7% Others: 7% *I copy pasted those numbers from the web.
