The pain of Apple dealers in Malaysia

Apple products in Malaysia cost way much higher than their prices in our neighbor, Singapore. For example, the basic iPod 30GB costs 27% more than it is in Singapore (converted to RM, RM1599 vs RM1260). So why the differences? Price Discrimination. It happens to China too. So I think Apple Malaysia will not do good until this goes away.
