NOTE: July 24-17
The exchange rate from USD. to CAD. on July 24-17 is 1.25 CAD. for every dollar in USD.. You need to add the difference to the the price of the system you want. The import fee (customs tarrif) or what every name they use is not cheap. Look for an additional fee of around 200.00. If you call UPS to find out exactly what the different parts of the fee represent a UPS representative will not answer(Most likely doesn't know!) and tries to get you off the line as quickly as possible. In short the difference in exchange rate plus the customs fee will cause the system to be equal to or greater than the price for a comparable system purchased in Canada. Also, check the manufacture date of the system you want or specifically ask a sales person if the system hardware is being assembled on order or a stock unit in inventory( Note built on order is more than just installing the OS which is purchased. The Notebook I purchased was one year old sitting in inventory and there was still a considerable delay in receiving the order in spite of purchasing a rush on assembly and shipping.
Another thing to consider is online chat support for a CyberPowerPC Notebook which very good. Not only was there a long wait time, the information that was received was wrong and the attitude of the representative was very poor! I'm still waiting for a tech. rep. to get back to me on my last tech support request which was more than one month ago. It wasn't surprising to discover that online chat support is outsourced.
An alternative route might be to get a list of Computer re-sellers that receive their product from Ingram Micro Canada (Largest Computer Distributor in Canada) and research support quality, pricing and business practice integrity for the individual re-sellers. Just a suggestion.
