Samsung Chromebook UK Prices

Samsung Series 5 (Arctic White) 3G -- 399 on Amazon UK. Release date 1 August 2011

Samsung Series 5 (Arctic White) Wi-Fi -- 349 on Amazon UK. Release date 1 July 2011

Base on forex rate they should be around 244 and 230 respectively. Does each item's shipping costs more than a hundred quid?

Doubt it cost that much for shipping but I'm sure they have a reason.

I think you need to compute the 20% VAT in the UK price which would explain most of the difference.

I just converted that price into American dollars and 399 is equal to $650 USD. If people in the UK are paying $650 USD for the ChromeBook, that sucks big time.

For $650 USD, we can buy a ChromeBook and get some really good ChromeBook accessories with the money left over.

It's the taxman. They have got to make sure every luxury you afford yourself you also have to give back to the treasury. It annoys me! It really does!

Sheesh, that's insane! For $650 you might as well just buy a regular laptop or something and stick Chrome OS on it. Are you still going to get one?
