Will Snow Leopard be released in South Africa on 28th? Or will us deprived South Africans have to wait a couple of week till Core releases it?
Upgrade pre-order available on the Apple SA strore for R329.00
And to think the guys at the Vodaworld iStore said this "$29 version" would not be available in SA. As usual, they were quite wrong...
The price of this product should be 236.024 ZAR according to the latest exchange rate. The Dollar has been very week for a long while now and the Rand has also recovered a bit.
I guess Core could have priced this product at R699 or R899 but then it still sells for $29.99 and shipping on the internet.
True that, but we can't just do a direct conversion. If we could, then the 13" MacBook Pro which goes for R13,999.00 here would be R9,430.00 ($1,199.00) instead. We never get the same prices as the US, sad as that is... It's just a fact and we live with it.
This doesn't just go for Apple products. Check out pricing on any major brand on Amazon (like Sony, Canon etc.) and you'll see we always pay a bit more than the Americans. The joys of living in a "3rd world country"
