Default Laptops and Broadband

Hi - New to the site but you have all proved to be invaluable with the posts and information. I am moving to Riyadh pretty soon and i think i have manage to get most of the answers i wanted from searching and various links.

I do however have one question i can't seem to find an answer (if it is on the site and i missed it apologies). I was going to get a new laptop (my desktop has had it) with webcam et al and wondered whether it was better to get one in the UK and bring it over or buy one when i get to Riyadh??

Any help gratefully received, thanks in advance.

Not sure of prices in Riyadh but with the pound so low... you can hardly find a better deal than in the UK. Apple MacBook are cheaper now in the UK than the US.

Hi thanks for the quick response, my feeling was that it was probably cheaper here before i move but wanted a second opinion. Cheers
