I live in Brisbane, Australia and am interested in buying a laptop. Considering the market in Australia is terrible, i would like to know if it is worth buying from the US/UK and even perhaps asia.
I currently go to university and would like to take it there so perhaps battery life is important, i also will be connecting it up to my 46" Sony HD tv for gaming and just general use so i think i would like a strong graphics card for gaming hdmi etc. I have read that the i7 is the best out at the moment so that is perhaps an option,
I do have tax coming in and would be willing to spend UP TO $400-$700 more on top of the $1200 to give myself some better range. I regulary buy stuff from overseas and was wondering whats the problem with buying a laptop from overseas and getting it shipped here? I know if i spend over $1000 AUD then import tax hurts so maybe i could get them to lower the price they say its worth - not sure.
If anyone out there could please help me with anything, i would appreciate it,
