The distribution price - Relevant in the AppStore economy?


I juts came across this amazing composition. It shows the price difference to buy a MacBook Pro around the world. When I was living in Spain I was always surprised for the price difference of Apple products being sold in Spain, in comparison to US or UK. It turns out that in Spain you would pay a 32 per cent more than in the US.

Having this conversation before, I was told there were different taxes in the States and licensing and distribution costs. I would like to be explained instead why you get to laptops for the price of one in Brazil
