i was reading pca the other day and in the letters section there was a letter form a reader in northern ireland complaining about the cost of postage to here. i have said about this in various threads over time.

so hands up who is from this green and pleasant land of N I and feels they get stiffed every time you order computer supplies from the mainland?

I thought a lot of I.T. companies like microsoft,gateway etc had set up their european bases in Ireland.

But I'm from "the mainland" and "get stiffed" if I order supplies (of whatever) from Northern Ireland or France or Australia or the USA or anywhere overseas.

Here, North Belfast.

It's scandalous what some charge. Royal Mail, Parcel Force and Famac don't charge any extra to here but some websites still do. Just boycott them, they obviously aren't worried about a million and a half potential customers, as they are trying to rip them off.

Northern Ireland isn't International it's Domestic, when did you get ripped off from ordering from here?

is this a can of worms? komplett as far as i can see sre the only ones that don't surcharge for NI. that is why they got my last upgrade order in august 05

I hope it isn't it Harpur.

Komplett are they good? I haven't used them. Will do though, if you recommend. Amazon don't charge extra either!
