Tech products prices differences in our countries than other countries around the world

Postby alexandru_c » May 15th, 2016, 9:07 pm

Here we can put the difference in price of tech products on our big markets compared to for example, Amazon prices.

I'll start with the MacBook Pro 15 Retina (512GB SSD) as my example:
On amazon, that macbook costs only $2,289 (
)
Ok, seems cheap from here, now let's go in Romania! Here, that macbook costs just the nice price of 11.999 RON ( http://www.emag.ro/laptop-apple-macbook ... DNCVRMBBM/ )
(11.999 Romanian leu = 3.018 U.S. dollars - converted by google - much more expensive than amazon price)

What are your differences in prices in your country? Here it seems like we pay more for less (even car gasoline it's more expensive here than the rest of Europe)

- the web addresses provided in this post were used as price references and for informing users on what I was talking about and to proove the prices provided in this post.

In The United States, Windows 10 Pro is $199.99. Not sure how much it is in other countries. Could be much more expensive.

Pro prices here for US: http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msu ... .319935900

Microsoft redirects my page from ro_RO to en_US when I choose to buy Windows 10 Pro so I get the same result there, but on emag I can get Windows 10 Pro 32 and 64 bit for 1099 RON ( $276.55 ) or just Windows 10 Pro 64 bit for 749 RON ( $188.48 ).
I'm surprised that in US currency isn't that expensive, but for our currency it's not a nice price.

That is interesting. Amazing how the same product from the same place will charge more. Although, is that for the download version or the actual disk?

The actual disk even if they don't mention it:
http://www.emag.ro/search/windows%2010
http://www.emag.ro/microsoft-windows-10 ... DH3PMYBBM/

At least, the installation USB device.
