    If you can wait a bit, I will be selling my Surface Pro 3 once my Eve V gets here. It is the i5/8GB/256GB version.

    No problem. I think you might want to state your budget and get your original post modified. Definitely helps other potential sellers. Thanks.

    Good luck... crap if I could find a source to get Microsoft Surface Pro 3 for $250, I would buy as many as I could get, as I could sell them for $500+ all day.

    I"d be all over one myself for $250 to replace my old i5 Samsung Slate tablet running Windows 10...

    Microsoft Surface 3 10.8'' 64GB Storage, Silver color | eBay

    What is wrong with this ? Used NON PRO...with powercord claimed in mint shape

    $244 shipped...you might have to ask if they will ship to you...

    Admitting, WOW...I saw some i5 Pro models for around $350-400... very reasonable (ebay)

    The Surface 3 is on ebay for as low as $200 (saw a few around $200-210), I would start contacting people on ebay to see if someone will ship one to you. You would have to figure out the conversation rate but, I am sure you can meet your price or get pretty dam close to it.

    Thank you. I saw that on ebay.

    The reasons I did not respond to that are :

    1. US exchange rate is $1 US = $1.37 CDN.
    $244 US is $334 CDN.
    I absolutely refuse to pay that outrageous exchange rate.

    2. It says May not ship to Canada.

    Thank you very much for trying to help.

    Only option you have David is to buy in your own country. No one that sells in other countrys want to pay for a buyers import fee. Good luck man on finding such. Also try looking on Amazon. You may find some good ones.

    I know that. Thank you.
    On eBay, I have selected Canada Only option.

    In my original post, I posted a "caution" to US members in case they want to respond to my request...........

    I would like to clarify one point.
    I am not objecting to "import tax/fee".
    I am objecting to US exchange rate.

    I am objecting to US exchange rate.
    So should one Rupee also equal one Canadian dollar if someone from India dislikes the exchange rate?

    I mean if you had a Surface worth $250 CAD, should I be able to purchase it from you for 250₹ because I don't care for the exchange rate of $1 CAD = 46.88₹?

    I'm just trying to fathom your logic. When I went to Italy the Euro was worth about $1.37 USD. Not one single person, bank or business said "never mind the exchange rate, I'll give you 1:1 just for asking." Nor would I have expected them to.

    I see your issue now.

    Your options are not that great here. You live in Canada, you need to pay the conversion rate if your funds are CDN. As anyone in the US, CDN is worthless to them here unless they convert it. You really DONT have a choice here if your trying to buy one from the US. You will need to find one in Canada,

    If your buying in CDN as I noticed, your offering about $182.23 (todays conversion CDN to US, 250 cdn to US) for someone in the US, and most places like paypal will charge a $5-7 fee(got bit by this one), so it's even less. I would post your ofering todays conversion rate and see if someone wants to sell one.

    WIth that being said, looking for about 20 min on ebay, the ones for $210 US are in fair shape. So for that rate in the US, your looking at one that is beaten up, or cracked but, working display.

    Good luck on your quest, if you really want one soon, your going to have to up your budget a little or just wait a few months sad to say.

    No, I am not in a hurry. I can wait and shop around.

    Jut for the hell of it, the following lists the amount of the successful bids in CDN.
    The amount shown was the final successful bid.
    The seller is in Canada.
    Just to show my $250 CDN offer is not unreasonable.

    And if I am still not being understood..............

    I am NOT against Exchange Rate.

    I am against $1 US = $1.37 CDN exchange rate.

    Many many years ago, USA president accused China for artificially inflate the value of Yuan in order to gain advantage doing business in USA.

    His objection then was no more different than mine today, except mine is trivial in comparison.

    It's not the way it works... read up a little. Your pretty much saying....I dont like the cost of something, so I refuse to pay it, that works real well with sellers.

    OK, Good luck. You DONT have to deal with the converstion rate if you buy one from Canada. PERIOD.

    If you buy one from someone in the US, or another contry, YOU HAVE NO CHOICE. Your disagrement of the exchange rate has no effect here. You should state your offer of $182.23 is your offer, as that is what your offering. That is all a US buyer will get.

    Your right, your ebay auctions you showed, they were not ending right now (and had a lot of time left), they had a lot of bids on them. Why not show the last 10 completed auctions ? As that would show what they sold for and you would see my point. I am sure they cost a lot more than $250 CDN... and you know it.

    You need to be honest with people, as your posting to a site based in the US. $250 is only $182.23 not including conversion fees.

    I'm done posting to you and I wish you good luck in your quest but, like I said, if you want to buy one from the US, you will need to up your budget or do more searching in Canada.

    I am holding my composure being accused of lying.

    Here is the screenshot, same as the one posted earlier. It showed that I bid on them but DID NOT WIN. I cropped the amount I bid, that's the only thing you do not see.
    The amounts shown ARE the final successful bid.

    Yes. I am done with this thread too.

    Where I am not being honest ?
    Not my fault if you people do not read carefully.
