As usual talking crap. It depends on what? - I can bring an HP or Sony Laptop at about 50% cheaper than that brought in the Uk. The reason , codpiece, is that people like Sony, HP,price their products on the particular market place. The UK is " a high price "market while the US is basically a low price area- and has nothng to do with where it was made. If you want a cheap IPAQ ppc let me know,.
Here he goes again!!!
Firstly I said computer BITS - ie - hard drives - ram - cpus etc etc.
BUT as you have mouthed off yet again
HP iPaq HX4700 WLAN 802.11b Bluetooth Mobile 2003SE
USA - $529.99 = £288.72
UK 273.14 ex vat
As to Sony Vaios the model numbers seem very different but comparing prices in the UK next to the States on specifications the UK seems cheaper!!!
So PLEASE tell me were I can save 50% on UK prices and I will buy loads - import them and make a fortune!!!
