Stop everything, sell hardware!
Selling hardware is the job we all should do! Just for fun, I investigated several webshops selling
Apple hardware and here are the results. I have chosen not-yet available MacBook Pro and compared
prices. I have chosen this model because I can't find it on local Apple web store in our country.
So, to start - Apple's worldwide store has the price USD 1999 (~1650
EUR) and free
shipping. Amazon offers USD 150 rebate, but the final price is not shown, so I'll ignore it for now.
Lets look in other countries: Germany EUR 2099
, Nederland EUR 2139
, Austria and France
, Italy EUR 2159
, Poland EUR 2250
And now look in my country - official web shop doesn't yet contain the product, but at least two web
shops already contain it - for 2360
EUR and for 2150
Of course you can't compare 1:1, but the range from USD 1999 to EUR 2250-2360 is somewhat large. The
difference is approximately the average monthly salary in our country ;-)
Anyway - the market will solve it...
