exactly I don't know why people bother bringing that up!

This could make an excellent Hackintosh, all of the specs seem to be compatible, and HP make some very mac-like laptops. I can't find a price for this online so it must not be available yet in the UK, but I'll bet that when it is it'll be more like £1170 than $1170. If you really wanted this machine in particular, it would certainly be worth a cheap weekend flight to New York to pick up, using the savings to fund a nice little getaway. My advice to the OP would be to get his friend to buy him one over there and bring it over with him next time he's over.

Illegal

And I bet you moan about the fat cats who avoid paying income tax too!

Assuming the power adapter is capable of being used in the UK (Which may not be possible) enjoy getting used to the US keyboard.

Its really not worth it..............

It's not like all the keys are in a different place, only @ and ". You just have to go into the control panel and switch it to the UK layout.

It I had to buy a new laptop right now, I'd probably go for one of the new Dell 17R SE's like this one....

configure.euro.dell.com/del…71e

£679 (less 10% with the standard voucher) gets you a 1920 x 1080 17" screen, the Nvidia 650M an Ivy Bridge CPU (not quad core mind). This specific machine is current showing up as OOS stock but I suspect this will change soon.

Oh, and the tax man won't be on your back as this comes from Dell UK.

I will assume you type without looking at the keyboard? I don't.

I know, you will be telling me you can physically swap the keyboard keys to get round this.

The whole thread is a dumb idea only supported by strange people such as yourself.

Good price if someone can bring from USA.

A lot of techy stuff is cheaper in the US because we get ripped off over here...
My dad worked in the RAF so because they had their own plane it was much easier for them to buy things and take them back to the UK, which is why he normally bought my birthday present in Europe or the US (Very rarely) cause it was cheaper.

Seems like a nice laptop but too much hassle.

Zero restrictions for bring stuff in on a plane from EU. Common market and all that jazz.

Wow, what's your problem? Smallclone just told you that you can remap the keys so that @ becomes " and vice versa. If it was a hackintosh, the keys would actually be in the right place, but it would be over a thousand pounds cheaper than the same spec macbook pro. If you don't understand what people are talking about here, please don't comment or vote cold.

All OP is planning is put stupid deals like this; which no one has access to.

I can do this on my laptop as well but obviously not.
