Not having to pay VAT is massive
(thank goodness we don't do that)! Imagine buying a car over there. Yikes!
Oh man. The prices on cars here today are bad enough thanks to dealer markup going on, SUVs especially. 10% tax here in CA is already ridiculous.
I thought it was going to fall in somewhere around $700, so after shipping it's a little more than I was expecting but not a ton. I'll be doing a mild purge later this Fall to make some room and replenish a bit. It should all work out in the end.
Yeah, same here, a little more than I was expecting but on the flip side it is a very unique product and that crew worked hard for years on this. They deserve the support.
Welcome to the party, ZZ! I've got a shirt and mug on the way to help get in the mood while we wait. =)
Right on! Even though I was initially going to wait, I just couldn't. Maybe we should have a new thread for the party?
Interesting, when I bought it the availability was Dec 23, 2021 and now the pre-order page is saying March 2022 so maybe I got lucky... Or maybe they didn't update it right away. Either way I will be happy. But my room is out of space so it is time to demote some stuff to storage. Too many Macs, PCs and
stuff. What I really need is a bigger place with a 1000 Sq Ft office.
