    Wow! That's highway robbery. Why do Europeans get ripped off so much when it comes to laptop prices? 3010$ is almost double the price. Why don't you guys shop US instead and let those gouging laptop shops die from bankruptcy? :p

    You can purchase a G73JW for 1749$ from a US resellers that comes with:
    1080p, i7, 8g ram, 1tb, w7-764, usb 3.0, 460m 1.5g

    International expedite shipping is +149$ USD.

    Factor in the 3% cashback given by US resellers if you wire transfer or E-Check and you're golden.

    So the total after the 3% cashback is 1843$ USD (stock unit + shipping included).

    All you'd have to worry about is duty/custom fees and even with that tacked on, it won't go anywhere near the prices European shops are asking.

    Czech Republic buyer would save about 500$ USD and the Hungary buyers would save about 900$ USD (assuming your custom fees are about 250-300$).

    Edit: I will also add to that UK link:
    1,427.00 GBP = 2,274.89 USD
    So you'd save about 150$-ish buying US if we assume custom fees are 250-300$.

    Actually I'm gonna order JW from xotic pc in a few days now, so... :D Yeah.. I really don't understand pricing in CZE.. and even more why they have these hybrid models, which are stupidly expensive with no choice of customize..
