$1499 CAD for the $2300 USD 30" display

Dell Canada has announced another 12-days of deals, which Dell has now become famous for. Among the deals available is yet again the 3007WFP, Dell's mammoth 30" LCD. The deal requires a coupon code, which is available here and time is limited. The 3007WFP is going for $1499 CAD, and available to Canadians only. Start making those Canuck friends again!

I bought a 3007WFP the last time Dell had this sale (for slightly more money), and I can vouch for the display's performance. Maybe now I can go dual 3007WFP!

If the US Dollar wasn't so weak right now this would be a great deal. In 40 years, I've never seen the Canadian dollar at .89 of the US Dollar. At this rate, it won't be long until the Canadian dollar is worth more than the US Dollar.

From Wiki

Since about 85 per cent of Canada's external trade is with the United States, Canadians are mainly interested in the value of their currency against the United States dollar (USD). The Canadian dollar was more valuable than the USD during the 1950s and for part of the 1970s, but has not regained that status since 1976.

Since setting an all-time low of US$0.6179 on January 21, 2002, the dollar rallied through 2003, 2004 and 2005 reaching US$0.85 on November 26, 2004, US$0.86 on September 30, 2005, and US$0.87 on December 13 of the same year. The Canadian dollar hit US$0.88 on February 28, 2006 and set a 14-year high on March 2nd.

timmiser;

It's a good thing, and your very statement is promising for our own country.

If our currency drops, it temporarily appears to be bad since we can't get cheaper good imported at such good prices anymore.

But in the long run, it means it makes more sense to do what we can locally. If we can't get cheap LCD's from Montreal, then guess what, they get made in Chicago or Memphis, etc.

And isn't that what we want? :)

Anyway, I'm cool with my 2001FP for now.
