Cheapest Countries in Asia For Apple Products

We all know that the official prices of Apple products are fixed everywhere in the world. But what you might not know is that these prices can vary depending on where you’re buying them from.

Take, for instance, the latest iMac 24″ that starts at USD1299. However, if you buy it in Indonesia, it can go as high as USD1650 (around USD350 more). On the other hand, if you get the same in Hong Kong, it will cost you USD10 cheaper than Apple’s official price.

This price variation is mainly due to tax rates and currency exchange rates of different countries.

So in this post, we attempt to give you an idea about the countries from where you can get the cheapest deal on Apple products. Let’s take a look.

How We Compare?

Before we go into the price variations, let us explain which products did we pick for comparison and on which criteria did we crunch the numbers.

1. The Apple Products

Most Apple products come in different variants and technical specifications. However, for this article, instead of listing all the different variants, we picked the most basic one with the minimum specs for each product along with its base price or starting price. From this, you can have an idea of the price difference for other (higher) variants as well.

However, for your convenience, we have also provided the information on higher specs availble for each product. The higher variants have been striked-off in the list to distinguish them from the basic ones.

2. The Price Calculations

If you’re wondering that through which criteria did we come up with the price comparison among different countries, then here’s an explanation on that.

First, there’s an official Apple price in USD currency (Label: Official), then there’s an Apple price in the country’s local currency (Label: Price (Local)). What we did is we took the latter, converted it to USD using the latest exchange rates from Google Finance (Label: Local to USD), and then we compare the discrepancies of both prices in USD (Label: Discrepancy).

Take for example, the Macbook Air that costs USD999 as per Apple’s official price for its lowest specs. If you are buying it in the United States, that’s how much you’ll be paying.

However, if you’ll buy the same Macbook Air with the same specs in New Zealand, you will be paying NZD1749 which makes around USD1266. It means that you’ll end up paying an extra USD277 if you buy the same product in New Zealand as compared to buying it in the US.
