View Full Version : the states
right... my dad's off to the states next week and i'm kinda wondering whats cheap over there computer wise at the moment compared with here.. and also what is availible that i can't get! what should i get him to look out for guys.. place your ideas here - six
What part you going to? It's been ages since i was in the states (off to NY this year though, maybe for xmas shopping) But its worth doing some research before you go, don't want to be spending all your time looking through PC shops. Whats the yanky version of Kelkoo?
I went in september and found the stores such as Comp USA weren't cheap. If you look round it seems that newegg is the most popular online store but unless you have somebody buy the stuff and your dad collect it then thats not much use. Best buy I found was the Gameboy SP. Paid $80 which worked out about £45 at the time. I'd suggest the Nintendo DS if you like them, I believe it retails for $150 which is about 1/2 the UK price of £150 when it goes on sale at the end of march.
As with all cases of bringing goods back from abroad, be prepared to be caught and have the goods taxed.

I swear I have seen the DS for £100 advertised over here. :)
when i went to NY a while back - we bought back at least 3/4x over the customs limit for alcohol, if we had got caught we'd have been slaughtered with tax! its a big risk if you go over the "tax free limit" (or whatever they call it) so its whether or not you can afford to risk it
