    Why can they never do something like this that's EU wide and not just for the UK ?
    As a buyer from Ireland looking to purchase a complete system upgrade, stuff like this is turning me more toward buying from Germany or the Netherlands, probably save the 100 anyway purchasing from a EURO currency country given the terrible exchange rate and retailer mark-ups.
    Even places like Overclockers charge the Irish VAT rate rather than the UK rate but yet still, can't avail of offers like these.
    Sucks !

    Not that great a deal really.....unless you are buying those exact high-end components.

    It's more of a way to tempt people in, making them think they are getting a bargain.

    Presumably the same restriction will apply to "an independent Scotland" - if so, the thought hadn't occurred to me (too wrapped up in £/no-£, EU/no-EU, etc*)

    To put it mildly. Maybe this is something that your MEP should be looking at - after all it's supposed to be a "single market" in the EU member states isn't it?

    (* and yes, I'm utterly sick of politicians of either camp at the moment!)

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    Southern Ireland is not part of the UK. Hence why ?
    You can always ask a friend in the UK and have them courier it over ?
