US dollar, import costs, small margin. They're a business and not a charity.

Parallel Imported, only current importer (well, at least biggest), provision for honouring CGA, etc etc etc...

It all adds up and also lets them milk it for profit, the exact same thing happened with Chromecast 1 (although it was more $79).

So they are probably making around 30% margin, sounds about right for local business
