Canadian Pricing

Camera Canon SD1000I’m considering buying a Canon SD1000 (IXUS 70). I saw it in a shop today for $279 CAD plus tax ($318). I decided to resist the impulse purchase, do some reading, and check the price online. Dell USA sells the camera for $165.99 USD while Dell Canada sells exactly the same product for $299 CAD.

Has nobody told Dell the Canadian dollar is worth more than the American dollar? The camera is 45% cheaper in the USA! I’m only 2 hours from the border! It’s outrageous.

Needless to say, I’ll be buying it in the states if at all.
