    I would like to know why with the Canadian dollar worth more than the US Dollar it still costs us so much more to buy from Apple in Canada. I am fortunate to live 8km from the border so I will just drop down for anything I buy. For those buying be sure to compare the US and Canadian pricing.

    This topic has been done to death.

    Everyone outside of the US gets ripped off because of the weakening dollar, but no one adjusts their pricing. Just the way it is, think yourself lucky you can pop over the border and pick them up for less. It's a lot more of a challenge from the UK where the price difference is a lot worse!

    I thought most Canadians lived within 100 km. of the border. Oh and don't forget to pay the GST and the Sales tax
