TAX system in Brazil is crazy. You can get the imported versions (40-50%) cheaper.

I mean even in the article they seem to flip flop rates between the Brazillian rate and the US rate.

1.00 USD = 1.71350 BRL

So if the least expensive unit in Brazil is $159 according to this...then why dont they list a cost of $272.45 BRL?

And the 60GB bundle apparently is $1,108 US? That just can't be correct. I mean even if the bundle was a $400 US price you are still only talking $685.40 BRL with the conversion rate.

Just seems off.

All prices at the article are in Brazilian Reais (BRL). $159BRL or $93USD is the price for To Human. You also must consider the Import Taxes that are huge in Brazil.

I suggest the Brazilians to get a plane to the US, buy and get back. You can bring back till $500USD tax free if you do that.
