    Why would any one bother to know the prices in "GULF REGION" I guess only two members are from GULF area, you and Keith Sebastian (brainac) from Doha. Most of the members buy from india or order it from their friends in US or somewhere . what i say is you stay in GULF so you must do some research there and tell us here. If this offends you, then Im sorry :|.

    Soory friend, but most users on this forum are from india, so it is unlikely that someone can help u even if u try and maintain such a thread, u see we cant get gulf prices......

    furthermore, even if prices where available, i douby most people here get anything from UAE.... so i would not be much concerned about gulf prices....

    @ilugd

    It depends, If u want in BULK u have to make the customs clearance & all, If its 4 personal use (eg: one Laptop) then u dont have to pay anthing , provided u have only the allowed quantity of the bagage with u , Even if the quantity is Little High ( Eg: 2 Laptops ) u wont face any problems in Dubai Airport , Sorry i dont know about the current situation in Indian Airports in this Case ( having 2 laptos).

    @Kniwor

    Ask ur friend in US to buy (vat ever u want to buy) it alteast 4-5 months before his Travel, so he can show as the used one at the airport with the bill ( in that case less/no customs duty) .

    @hafees

    All r Brand new , more in the store staff directly from companies offering more discounts & gifts ( like u buy laptop u will get Laptop bag + 1 gb flash drive & all)

    @All
    Its my pleasure to provide vat ever i can from the GULF SECTOR ,coz i like....... sory, i luv Digit & all forum members. :D

    keves2002 - Why not try www.souq.com ?

    I think Carrefour prices are a bit on the higher end when it comes to tech stuff. I mostly use Carrefour for groceries. :wink:

    Have a look at you closest branch of Jarir Bookstore for better prices - http://www.jarirbookstore.com/

    Cheers,
    Keith

    Option #2 Jarrirbookstore.com:: They have only 1 Outlet Across the country (UAE) ..its in Abu Dhabi ..too far from my place( Sharjah), They Didnt mention the prices in the Website where the UAE products Mentioned , So i decided to make a phone call , Lets see the Responce from their Store!

    dv1494 - 5540/- Dhs
    dv4391 - 5040/- Dhs
    dv4381 - 4540/- Dhs
    dv1591 - 4790/- Dhs

    ( i didnt verify the Model Nos ,Any way they dont have a Model For 3000/- dhs or Less in Hp)
    So I cant Sugguest him to go for this option

    Firstly I never said groceries are cheap at Carrefour. :lol: Good french stuff comes at a premium.

    Secondly, don't stick to my options. Get out of your house and into Dubai - the gadget mecca of this world. You'll find some of the best tech shopping can be done here.

    HI me too in UAE, Basically from Mangalore, India.
    S as per me Carrefour rates are cheap provided if some promotional schemes are there.

    U can try for second hand Laptops also here. Very cheap. But i dont think we can get latest processors. P3 with more than 1Ghz spees we get at 1500/-Dh (Compaq Note book) (1500Dh = Aprox 18000 Rs). S we can take one laptop wihtout paying any customs in airport.
