Yes this is the TVA/VAT.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but there's no VAT outside the European Union, so why does the price not go back down when you are purchasing from a country outside of Europe?

I suspect that's how it is supposed to work, but that's not how it currently is working. Picking the United States as the country of purchase still has the inflated price.

Edit: I'm not complaining, per se, as it's still a very fair price, but I don't feel a particular need to pad some government treasury when I'm not subject to their laws and don't take advantage of their services, if you see what I mean. I wouldn't have a problem with the idea of Jeff making a little extra money, but some government? Not so much.

I don’t know how it works in France, but I worked at an airport store for a short period in Germany.

Example:
1. User comes from USA and walks into a store in Germany and buy a new Apple laptop.
2. User receive an invoice from the store after buying the laptop.
3. User walks to the “tax-free” office and refund the tax.

Sum summary translated:
US user forward the invoice from HxC forward to their “tax-free” office and get tax refund.

The question is; is it the paperwork worth for 2 €? :D

Barely worth mentioning, I agree, but if there was a simple way to configure the web-store (you know, a check box or two) then it would be cool -- penny saved is a penny earned. If not, then... eh, shrug.
