Apple Inc doing a number on Australian consumers

That number being 200, as in two hundred dollars more per iMac (2011) that Australian's pay compared to U.S customers.

I've spoken about how Australian video gamers get slapped with expensive games in the past, this is just another problem Australian shoppers face.

At Apple's Official Website http://www.apple.com/imac/ the iMacs start at $1199

Apple's Australian web portal has the exact same product for $1399 http://store.apple.com/au/browse/home/shop_mac/family/imac?afid=p219|GOAU&cid=AOS-AP-AU-Google

I really don't like this, especially considering the proximity of Australia from the Countries that Apple exploits to make their products.

One other thing that irritates me is the fact that at the time of writing this the Australian Dollar is worth $US1.084, meaning Apple America get $US1516.516 because of our strong dollar for something the same that costs $1199 in the United States - A $317.50 price difference because I'm not American, I'm Australian.



Up yours Apple.
