Somebody’s taking a big cut here

I’m in the process of getting a new TFT screen. My old 20 inch is getting awfully tired. I’ve heard lots of good thing about Dell’s 24 inch TFT’s. Check this baby out:

$674 is about 4700 Swedish kronor. That’s an amazing prize for that monitor. Now, have a look at Dell Sweden’s price:

10500 Swedish kronor! That’s $1500! Now, granted, we have to add 25% value added tax to the US price, but even with that tax added, there’s still a $650 price difference. That’s just ridiculous.

Anyone wanna ship one of these babies to me from the US?

    Wow, 650$ would almost pay a weekend trip to NY, then you just go into one of those elusive Dell store and buy it… :-)

    Dell has elusive stores? I think you’ve got a PC manufacturer confused with Apple :D

    Elusive as in non-existant, the Apple stores are not so hard to find – by the way I just ordered my first Mac… should be here any day now.

    Ah, nice. You won’t be disappointed.
