People in western eu won't give a damn, most Germans are richer than Americans. In eastern eu though you have to work for 3 months straight without eating or paying your bills so you can afford the cheapest iPhone. Just fuck my shit up, fäm.

Check any decent european HW e-shop.
Nope, no price drop.
I wait to the next day. Maybe the prices will happen then, I think.
Nope. Fuck my yuropoor ass.

OKay, I'm an idiot. Yeah, and prices are high, especially GPU's it seems

Try not being poor.

Because a quarter of the price is tax.

I bought my hw from Germany. It's really cheap there as seen to Finland.
>>
>>51575422
It's not that HW is expensive in Europe, it's that Europeans are (relatively) poor. Europe is somewhere between the third world and anglo countries in terms of your economic development. Sorry but it's true. I'm from UK and I've been to Europe several times and the difference in your living standards is immediately noticeable, and you're all using like 5-10 year old phones, old cars, worn out clothes, poor infrastructure... Maybe instead of bitching and blaming everyone else you should start working more than like 30 hours a week and cut down on your bureaucracy and siestas. Be a bit more like us, essentially.
>>
>>51577404
One can dream. A nice, thick wall wouldn't go amiss right now.
>>
>>51577492
I work 40 hours a week for an American company and I make like €500 a month. Fuck off.
>>
>>51577492
What? The UK is poorer than Benelux, Germany, Scandinavia... you're not in the same group as the US or Australia.
>>
>>51577560
You're off your meds mate, Europe is far poorer than the UK. When is the last time your economy even grew? Hasn't it been stagnating and in crisis for like a generation now? There are Europeans fucking everywhere in the UK now because they literally can't even feed their kids in Europe your economy is so shit.

lmao! Uk poorer than FRANCE? You're clearly off your head on something mate. Listen you can protest all you want but the fact remains that Europeans are in Britain cleaning our bins, sweeping our streets and making our coffee because your economy is so shit and there are no jobs. Every time I turn on the news or open a paper there's a story about how shit Europe's economy is. People living in tents, 50% unemployment, people working 30 hour weeks, I read a story the other day about how some European country people are digging up their grandparents fucking graves because they can't afford to by new coffins and plots of land to bury their parents in they're so poor.

Not our fault your continent is a stagnating mess. Stop being lazy, work harder and get rid of your bureaucracy and maybe one day you can be successful like us. Then you can afford decent graphics cards. Until then stop whining.

Not everyone in Europe is from romania (which even isn't that poor really)
>>
>>51577759

Ouch britfag on suicide watch.

But forreal that guy probably went to spain or italy twice on vacation to get his pasty white skin baked. People there actually are a few years behind in fashion/technology. Northern yurop is on a whole different level though.

Polandfag here, can confirm.
A lot of people here have windows phones because of their good specs/price ratio

>>
>>51578088
What are you on about mate? Are you retarded? Greece/Spain/Italy are shitholes and poor as fuck. Their economies are failing hard, but the last time I checked so was Ireland's.

The people cleaning your trash are most likely from eastern europe which is an even bigger shithole. The part of Europe that actually matters (Scandinavia, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium Luxembourg) is richer than the UK.

You know most of the mainland Europeans you see working shit jobs there are from Eastern Europe, right?

The UK is actually becoming poorer relative to the rest of Europe: http://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/tgm/table.do?tab=table&init=1&language=en&pcode=tec00114&plugin=1

I'm french but I was in romania (during one of my 10 weeks of paid hollyday a year, take that rest of the world!)
I just went to the big cities and it isn't as bad as I had imagined. Maybe the fact that they are in the EU now allow them to get a substantial amount of money to improve their infrastructures.

Sure it was not the richest country out there but largely better than ukraine, moldova, serbia or macedonia.
>>
>>51577284
I honestly, unmemeingly wouldn't mind paying double the price for hardware if the alternative was to live in the only country in Earth that unironically considers Trump a viable candidate for presidency.

just order from US even if there is 20% tax its still worth showing the EU seller scumbags what the prices should be like

>>51578451

It's not really their fault when half the price is taxes.

Isn't shipping expensive as fuck though

Hardware prices are not as ridiculous as software prices though.
A few years ago I had to buy Adobe CS4.
I got a boxed version from USA, paid for overseas shipping, then import taxes etc and it was still almost 20% cheaper than if I got it in EU.
>>
>>51578603
Europeans are foreign
>>
>>51578491
the fucking shipping from US to EU is sometimes cheaper than shipping from within EU ... disgusting, the taxes are usually 20%, the shipping lets say for gpu could be around 15 to 30 dollaridos depending if tracking is provided etc.
>>
>>51578635
jewuropa
>>
>>51578488
that's not true, the tax is around 20%

this desu senpai.

>>51578603
It doesn't though. Britkucks have no euro, have no metric system (officially they do but they still use >muh imperial system of the Queenkuck), they are also not part of schengen, and they drive on the left, and they have that shitty imperial wall plug instead of europlug. UK isn't really a part of Europe.

>>51577034

Not richer than americans, but I can certainly confirm the second part.
>>
our wages are the like twice of those in America, our taxes is slightly higher but in the end, we get the same prices.
Maybe if you had a job it wouldn't be so bad.

>>51575422
Pay your debts Greece

Who gives a shit?

Please don't tell me you're some kind of consumerist retard?

I don't understand why on earth would anyone buy a new smartphone/computer/laptop/whatever more frequent than like every 4-5 years.
>>
>>51578732
~20-23% vat, depending on country
+ higher than US income taxes
+ higher costs of everything: transport, storage, workers etc
+ more stupid regulations
>>
>>51578873
Even when you buy a phone once every 5 years, it still sucks ass that when you take the {phone price} / {hourly wage} ratio, you have to work 8x longer to buy it than the US guy.
>>
>>51578700
Where do you live? When I built my rig in Germany, all shipping costs were between 0 and 10€

America here. How rich am I?

And thanks to that:
- you can graduate from college for 0€ and without student loans
- you can get quality healthcare for 0€
- you can rest assured the food you eat doesn't have transgenic high-fructose corn syrup sponsored by Monsanto
- you can drive much safer cars in case you don't want to use the cheaper public transportation (http://www.independent.co.uk/news/business/news/new-ttip-scandal-car-industry-buried-report-revealing-us-car-safety-flaws-10514716.html)
>>
>>51579113
if you came to pooland you'd be rich as fuck
minimum wage after tax is ~7.65 zł/h, and currently 1 dolaroo = 4 złoty
so if you you're earning $4k/mo you earn monthly what a factory worker gets here in a year
>>
>>51579113
Vote for Trump, that is all I can say. If Sanders gets elected, get ready for a shitload of taxes. He's a kuck and doesn't realize that the Scandinavians pay a shitload of their incomes for "free" education/healthcare.
>>
>>51579173
yes. But also thanx to that, everything is more expensive. It's not, like >>51578451 said, because sellers are scumbags
>>
>>51579173
>you can get quality healthcare
lol no
>>
>>51578732
>20% in Europe
Definitely not Norway, 80% of Income goes to the state... Fuckings fees and taxes
Most of the tax and fee Money goes to immigrant NEET's..... Norway yes
>>
>>51579173
>quality healthcare
Yeah, you have to wait 6 months for an appointment, and if you have cancer you probably die without a doctor checking you out. Nice meme though.

>>51579706
That's what the majority of your people chose. Isn't democracy just great?
>>
>>51577759
France's purchasing power is complete fucking garbage, the tax man is so deep in our pockets, what we're left at the end of the day is barely enough to feed ourselves.

There's been this huge exodus this past couple of years of Frenchmen who are so sick of it they end up immigrating to Canada, Quebec where the cost of living is a hundred times lower while also having better job opportunities.

The left is cancer.

Just go to UK

How the fuck is this shit allowed ?
And I can find dozen and dozen of examples in many websites in France.
FX-8350 that I bought 145€ without any discount was ~ 185€ normally in the internet for few weeks now. Price was set to 210 and 189€with a discount.
Fuck this shit.

Same exact thing in Spain, and everywhere else I suppose. There are some (few) legit good deals, but the vast majority are just scams.

>>
>>51580347
But I haven't seen a shop that doesn't show price with VAT included so it's not that hard to compare them.

UK has absolutely nothing to do with Europe. Europe = poor foreign continent full of weirdos and has-beens who spend their time hating Britain when they're not scrounging off us, Europeans = foreigners who clean our bins. Nothing to do with the EU, way it's always been. Come to UK and try and tell someone they're from Europe. Best result is they'll look at you strangely, worst case punch you in the face. And I'm 100% serious.
