    You know, I would, I really would, but the sale has finished now, and there are none left.

    Please place your order with 'Galant Shipping' early!!

    I have to say that the subwoofer on that system is pretty impressive. Can't imagine the neighbours like it though!

    Now, once it's arrived, all I have to do is figure out how to put it all together.

    Time for a PC Party methinks!

    $874 @ todays rate is about £505.

    Yeah stuff like that shows how inflated our prices are.
    We have the exact same product yet we pay quite a bit more.

    It's not just electric goods, supermarkets, restaurants..... etc are quite often cheaper as well.

    OT but i buy quite alot of goods online from Usa. Even with shipping it can still be alot cheaper. Although i probably would not purchase lots of computer gear in case of getting caught with paying the tax as it comes through customs, which i havn't done so far
