Default USA Prices Vs UK Prices

Ive noticed all hardware is cheaper in the USA than it is in the UK which personally I think is very unfair does anyone know of any online store in the USA which will ship products to the uk, or does anyone know any UK online stores which have prices as cheap as USA prices?

I know that but I know that $1 is roughly equal to £0.60 for example ;

uk the: Netgear 108mb Wireless Broadband router = £93.28

in USA: Netgear 108mb Wireless Broadband Router = $89.98 equivalent to £51.20

Big difference in price IMO

im sure it wont cost $80 - £50 to ship a small package to the uk

however when i think about it there is probably some kind of law regarding tax or duty for shipping to a differnt continent, i know anywhere through europe there are no tax or duty charges but im sure USA to UK there will be some kind of laws
