As of 10 seconds ago: the Canadian Dollar is worth $1.03 US.
Not much of a difference.
The cost of business is significantly higher in Canada, that's what accounts for the higher prices. Your health-care is a large factor... Seems like a fair trade to me. I pay $250 US every month for insurance, you pay more for goods. It all comes from somewhere.

iPad 2: GPU Benchmarked with Impressive Gains - Mac Rumors
And btw like has been said before any company has the right to price their product at whatever price point you are willing to pay for. Because we love them we buy them even at ridiculous prices (remember the first iPhone?)

I wish I had a miniature elephant that fit in the palm of my hand. I would pick him up and he'd lift up his trunk and stand on his back legs and say PRRRRRRRRRRRRMMMMMMMMMPPPPPPPPPHHHHHHHH and I would say yes little elephant i love you too.

Keep in mind that this whole thing is an educated "pulling numbers out of their ***" exercise. The details of Apple's contracts with their suppliers including actual cost is confidential. For example, how do you think they came up with the cost of a CPU that's not available outside of Apple's internal supply line? They just made up a number that's probably close to what it actually is.
