But, I'm moving to Chicago in September...so problem solved.
A few of my friends have the systems shipped to US relatives. The relatives then either ship it here, or when they come in for a visit they bring it in.
It's worth it..you can save like 800-900 dollars.
Dell USA plays more pricing games. Their base price is higher than in Canada but they offer phat coupons to make people think they're getting a steal as opposed to just having a lower base price. Dell Canada's deals are more moderate but hover around a lower base price. I've been watching Dell USA and Dell Canada for three months now -- Dell Canada will come out with a great deal once every month and a half or so, as good as (or close to it) anything the USA customers get, but you need to be patient. That is what I observed for the system I was pricing.
However, for my 9300, I did not have the patience and spent about $250 more than what American customers were paying for approximately the same thing with the recent coupon deals. C'est la vie.
I feel really sorry for Aus and UK customers. Dell is screwing them over big time.
