Hi there, im going to New York in October (at least you'll have a rest from me then) and i was wondering what your advice would be regarding buying a laptop there instead of over here? My main choice at the moment is the Samsung R720, does anyone know if there is likely to be better spec laptops in N.Y than over here?
Id be very interested in your thoughts on this!

Depends very much on the exchange rate when you go out there. Because of the value you should also declare it on your way back through customs. That will probably hurt!! I doubt whether the spec of laptops will be any better that UK ones, they tend to get launched almost simultaneously nowadays. I think you will be better off shopping around for the best deal over here. It will certainly lessen any problems if you have to claim under warranty. You will also get a keyboard layout that matches the rest of your computers, and not a US layout.
