    I've ordered directly by phone with a sale rep, the first prop for that config was 5029$ incl. VAT, with the 8x DVD/RW recorder.

    Then after many talks and other prop, I finally get 3634$ incl. VAT for the same config, and when my command was confirmed, they changed the 8x DVD/RW for the 2x Blu-Ray for the same price !!!!

    My command is now on production, and I should receive it on 6/20th

    I'm very happy with the price :eek:

    Hi,

    I'm french too, how did you manage to get such a discount, that's 1400$!! Do you have a special phone number for that?:D

    Also, do you know why the IPS screen is not available for the M6600?

    I've received at least 8/10 estimates for that config and w/o the IPS screen, I've managed to get that price : 2380€ incl. VAT ($3390) with the WLED FHD screen, then I get a prop at 2570€ incl. VAT ($3670) with the IPS FHD screen....

    It took almost all the day to get that price, and finally the sale rep told me that she cared only about my command that day...when finally the payment was done, she changed the 8x DVR/RW recorder for the 2x Blu-Ray for the same price, so 430€ ($612) more saved !!!!:)

    So finally, from the first price ($5641 incl Blu-Ray + VAT), I finally paid $3670, so I get a $1970 discount !!!!
