It depends whether the business is registered in your province or not. If it is they are required to charge PST as well as GST. The exceptions are those (like NS) that have harmonized sales tax - they charge the harmonized tax, not just the GST.

I'd suspect this is mainly because of warranty differences.
I wonder how NE gets around the differences in US and Canadian warranties? I know with DSLR cameras the Canadian subsidiary won't support the warranty on an American camera. The reason is that the acceptable failure rate is lower (better) for Canadian cameras.

I too placed my first order with NE. I feel bad but I had to buy pc2100 ram for a family member's computer and NE offered the ram at half the price of what I could get up here. I feel bad for the usual stores I visit but there is no way I am going to pay double on something.

Now I want to see how long it will take to get here (they predict delivery on the 24th).

My order just arrived today: a 3 day turn around. Nice. No extra charges came with the package. All arrived safely packed.

I hate to say it but they just might get more business if prices for the same item up here can't compete.
