you can always try making your own computer. its always cheaper but takes a lot of thought and research. sorry but i don't know any European websites for parts. You can try tigerdirect.com and newegg.com if you are interested. they might have European factories but im not sure.

building laptops dont tend to ever be that practical and because of poor unavailablility id say more expensive that pre built

Ive never tried building a laptop, just building a desktop now and its about $1000 dollars cheaper than pre built. so i wouldn't know the availability for laptops but its an idea if you are feeling bold

* AMD Turion 64x2 TL60 Processor
* (2.0 GHz, 1 MB Cache)
* Genuine Windows Vista (R) Home Premium
* 3 GB Memory
* 160 GB Hard Drive
399

thats what you saw. not a bad deal, but for an extra 190 i got a better processor, double the hdd space, a much better gpu, 3 times as much cache, etc, etc.

@muz, still says its being prepared for production
its the 19th now and says it should arrive on or before the 25th. most people have said it will come early, but with the weekend very close i doubt it
