umm, because it has to come over in a boat, and the cost of fuel these days.
#2
it weighs like 115 grams
i think 40 quid is abit harsh to get 115grams across the sea
i could understand like an extra fiver
:(
#3
it's the 99cents / 79p a song thing, costs them fuel to ship the song over to your ears ;)
#4
The US price will have sales tax added on top, with the UK price it's included.
#5
they travel first class
#6
is there any big advantages of the new touch anyway?
#7
yeh i noticed this too, its ridiculous
#8
maybe because our minimum wage is higher then then, as well as a range of other factors.

buy a book on economics.
#9
think it might be better to get an old touch
there gonna be cheaper
no difference between the two other then abit of design
and i think they look nicer
:)

The market price reflects the population size........supply and demand basics, among other factors too.

I never buy jeans/trainers over here, get them in the USA......pretend it's just a trip to see family.

As to getting the touch.....it pays to have a mate who works in John Lewis, fab discount ;-)

If you are flying, or know someone who is, then it's an option

#14

Go to [url]www.bestbuy.com[/url]

Prices are usually $230, $300 and $400 + sales tax (typically 7%) wherever you go however.

So for a 32 GB model, it works out as $400 + $28 local US sales tax, so $428 is what you pay.

At current exchange rate (say $1.78) that equates to 240 quid.

Note that the same model in Dixons tax free is 246 quid, plus you get a UK guarantee.
