exchange rate error in your favour!
--> US prices start at $1299. In the UK, prices kick off at £699
At current exchange rates, £699 = $1394. Considering that £699 is inclusive of VAT and that quoted US prices don't include sales tax, the ex-VAT price is £595 / $1190...which is cheaper than the US price!?!?
I suspect that the person setting prices at Dell won't be getting a job offer from Microsoft any time soon...
