Yesterday evening I bought this Fujitsu-Siemens laptop, identical except mine has a 200Gb hard drive capacity instead of the 120Gb on the one advertised.
Had I bought it in the UK, as the advert shows, I would have paid £1209 including the VAT. As I bought it in Dubai, I paid £670. That is a saving of £539, or 45%. Yes, I am sure you could get it cheaper than £1209 in the UK by not buying direct from Fujitsu-Siemens, but even so the consumers in the UK are being shafted royally.
If anybody asks you why some of us prefer to live in a 50 degree desert or minus 40 tundra than stay at home, be sure to direct them to this post. Rip-off Britain is still alive and well.
