    The prices aren't exact conversions. For example here in Canada, the 8GB is $249.99, 32GB is $319.99 and 64GB is $419.99.

    It's usually been like that. Apple TV is $99 and in the UK it's £99 which is a little unfair but that's life. Don't go to america just to save 20 odd pounds on a device which you will enjoy.

    The uk apple store on the ipod section at the bottom really small says £239 for 32 gb like the 3rd gen but on the buy page it says £249 which is weird as it lists two different prices for the same product.

    Yes, that's the same with the German site. 32GB in USA is 299$, and in Germany is 299€, and that's a big difference. But if you look on the fine letter, you can read this (it's on German, but I translated it):

    For the 8GB: € 39 including taxes, tariffs and other charges .*
    For the 32GB: € 51
    For the 64GB: € 67

    My 32GB was 250€ + 49€ Taxes. So 299€ end value.

    Yeah it was the same when i invested in my 3rd gen ipod touch, i thought "oh wow cheap on the US site," but as soon as appleUK uploaded prices i got angry lol. It is VAT in this country that seriously makes it looks 40 quid more expensive.
