    Alright so $50, not to bad. All of their products either were the same price, or $50 more expensive here in Canada compared to the United States.
    Old MacBook: US - $1299 CA - $1349
    New MacBook: US - $1299 CA - $1399
    Apple, what is this. The dollar isn't that low...
    I know the UK and other countries have this way worse with $200 differences.
    Urg.

    Yeah

    Apple has made prices higher for Canada even when our dollar was at par with the US. However, its dropped and lots of it has to do with the recession Hopefully it will go up again!
