Hardware, Embedded Systems Both IDC and Gartner have released their preliminary figures on the state of the US and worldwide PC market, and while both companies agree that overall, the market declined about 3-5% worldwide, they differ when it comes to the figures of Apple. Quite interesting.

I think it's more that Apple does not adjust their prices according to the expectations of different parts of the world, rather they usually just convert their USD figure to whatever the local currency is and sell it at that price.

This simply isn't true. In Australia Apple charges at least 50% higher than US prices. Apple prices are at least twice those of equivalent PCs.
