I'm looking to buy a new computer from the US and get it delivered to my girlfriend's place over there, from where I'll bring it back over here and save a few hundred £s. What factors do I need to consider when doing this? e.g. dvd regions
I think most things have been covered by the other threads. In the end, it just may not save anything, only give further problems and concerns. The other possible consideration, will the American supplier except UK credit card transactions, if that is the way you intend to buy, some companies will not.
The other possible problem is high transportation costs. DHL or UPS not to bad, but airline excess baggage !!.
Hello Gingerdaz, Voltage (US =110V), Keyboard layout sightly different, no £, Euro etc as alt keys are different. Software written in american (it does make a differnce!). Modem connector(wall end) different. Go to Circuit City/Best Buy/ CompUSA and find a dual voltage model, presuming you are buying a tower system. My last advice is DON'T!!
