Yeah that's the regular price even when on Dell.ca.
It may go on sale again.
I ordered mine on July 4th and received it on the 14th after it went on backorder for a little bit. Their shipping is super fast as well. They shipped on the 13th and I got it on the 14th. Most likely since it was the same province. I choose UPS and it came FEDEX
As I said, the 2209WA is not available from Dell.ca, where are you seeing it?
On Dell.com it's $289 US funds... and it was my experience you can not order on line for delivery to Canada.
lol i said even when it was on Dell.ca
it's not been on Dell.ca for at least 2 months now I believe.
ShopRBC is the only place that has it.
You can also find ppl selling it used on FRD forums and Kijiji.
