I hear you Dave. Curious question though — doesn’t that actually mean people in Britain will actually be getting the iPad cheaper than people everywhere else? I’m not sure comparing it to the exchange rate is the best way to look at it. I mean, if the iPad was created in Britain, whose dollar is so much stronger than the US, it would be incorrect (and suicide) for the sellers to sell what is 429 pounds for $645.00 or whatever the exchange difference is. Yes it is cheaper in the US and Canada if you look to the exchange, but to you, unless foreign tech is usually based on the exchanged cost from the country of origin, isn’t 429 pounds the same hit to your wallet as $429 is to mine?

And I will have to pay $499 as a minimum.
