Core vs. CAB and Apple

leave a comment »

Here is the podcast from Cape Talk/702:


Some interesting points are brought up, such as the pricing in SA vs. USA.

The example of the MacBook Air was used.

MacBook Air on US store = $1499

According to Core, the US site doesn’t show VAT and they purchased it at R10/$1.

At R10/$1 = R14990

+ US VAT at 14% = R17088.60 – Correct VAT figure?

Once in SA, VAT of 14% =  R19481.00

Plus other costs, such as import tax.

Price on ZAStore = R18999.00

Check my figures!

Maybe Core isn’t so bad? Or they are lying about something…
