I looked a couple of weeks ago and the best pre-order price was CHF620, then last week it was CHF650 and now it is CHF670 with the more 'normal' cheap internet sellers wanting between CHF720 and CHF735. Sales tax in Switzerland is 8%. CHF1 = USD1.14 so we are looking at about $110 to $125 more than US price when Tax and exchange rate is taken into account ie. about 18% more expensive

Yeah ... you should be glad.

That's the country where even low wage jobs often have minimum salaries of CHF 4000 per month. That is 3300 euros.

In other countries (Germany, Austria) the same jobs pay half as much.
