I thought you might of liked that find Zek. There is only 60 of these that are going to be released, as of now there is 57 left. So if you want one, you better do it quick. ATi has done this before with the X800s but they only made 8 of those from what I was told.

It would always be worth something to a collector. The key is how do you find that collector, eBay for example, you just never know. I went and looked about ordering and it seemed like you could order it to the USA. If £ stands for euro(Which I think it does) then its around 645 dollars

£ stands for Pounds, the UK currency which is worth like 1.8 of them to the USA dollar.

Yeah, but I think the UK is cooler then the rest of Europe, so they get to keep their Pounds :).

Well we have coutries that are part of EU in Europe and some that are not. And being part of EU doesn't mean you had to go to EURO. Don't even remember so great, but we voted to be part (or not to be) EU and then goverment decided for or against EURO.

This explains it more:

the current trading rate of pounds (£) to Dollars ($) is £1 = $1.94

so currently USD $1066.81 is the us price


correction £1 = $1.98 = USD 1099

of course it does, America is owned finacialy by China, they own most of the governments Barerer bonds, because China has so much of America's money the US government has to make more meaning the curency gets devalued so in closing


£1 = $1.98

Well if released directly in the US it would cost less because we have higher taxes... but if you want it you're going to have to pay our lovely high prices!

Hmmm, but if you buy from the UK into teh US I think you are exempt from VAT. Value Added Tax, an ironic name... I suppose Very Annoying Tax would be more appropriate, or Velvety Anus Tail etc...

jocksteeluk, you have come out with severable stupid economic arguments regarding the ps3 and now another one.

This claim is ridiculous in its innaccurate assessment and the fact is i would have a tough time explaining to you why the US dollar is so weak at the moment vs the pound, or why China has such large reserves in US dollars. By the way, these two things are weakly related at the very best.

Im sure theres a wikipedia article explaining it(or the economist which has hundreds of articles on it, although remember they tend not to restrain themselves from China bashing). Just do some research before you scream out stupid comments.

edit: Also, the USA has one of the most free economies in the world with free market philosophy ingrained in almost everything they do. In a few words, the reason for the disparity in reserves is more to do with what the Chinese government is doing rather than what the US government is or is not doing.

If only it were as simple as that! There are a 101 reasons why the US dollar is weak at the moment, the UK pound is fairly strong but the political climates in both countries are very different at the moment and economically our philosophy's are quite different. There is no getting away from the fact that the US economy is fairly weak at present but the UK has been there many times in the past, our economy is one of act and counteract.......borrowing goes up, wages go up then inflation goes up...so interest rates go up which in turn brings borrowing down and the cycle continues, the US have a slightly different approach because it has a different political and economic climate = different needs and priorities......hey who would have thought I am a diplomat!

I like your attempt at trying to explain to jocksteeluk why hes wrong but. But that post is pretty much gibberish.

From what i can understand, politics bla di da, again very little to do with the current situation. Then you nicely explain the process of inflation and the self stabilising process. By the way, this isnt unique to the UK but this is exatly how it works in every free economy around the world including the US. After that, again some more waffling about needs and priorities, blad di dah.

At least you recognised jocksteeluk was wrong. :)

edit: oh yeh, the process mentioned above is crude and it is far more complex, but that what youd get taught in economics 101.

I thought saudi had ALOT of ready's tied up in the u.s.a? I dont claim to be a politician but the world is a very corrupt place and everybody owns a piece of someone! Its what makes the world go round!

P.S - I wish newegg shipped to uk, because hardware prices in u.s.a and current exchange rate are GOOD.....
