DELL XPS11 Australian Pricing - Almost double US pricing?

The Australian Dollar used to be pretty bad a decade a go compared to the US so you can justify spending double when it came to IT purchases.

However over the last few years exchange rates have seen the USD and AUD pretty level.

I cant understand why Dell prices the XPS 11 in Australia for $2,498 compared to 1,400 in US?

In the words of Pauline Hanson - Can someone at Dell "please explain"?

Maybe it's first day pricing and you get to pay extra to have a monogram emblazoned on the cover "I am a sucker".

Seriously $2,498 What are Dell thinking.
