Complete rip-off in my eyes (ibook)

I went to, to look close at the price-diff
between $ and ¤.

I took a standard ibook with:
G3 700Mhz
ati + 16MB
DVD/CD-RW combo


US = ¤ 1529,49 => $1499,00 (¤1,00 = $0,98)
EU = ¤ 2140.81
DIFF=¤  611,22

See what I mean?

I know that there are import taxes, shipping cost, etc...
But ¤ 611 !?!?! Per Laptop!?!?!?

I feel cheated... No, I did not buy one (yet).

Anyone got ripped off like this?

If I buy such thing, I think I'll rub this under their noses to see if I
can get something more out of the deal. :-P
I'm allready making my 'shopinglist' (HCC-dagen) ;-)
