Sure, as long as it's compatible with your system.

You could say I've been around.

haha, i just got back from london . . .

trust me, buy from canada . . . its cheaper!

basically the conversion is £1 = US$1.82

and £1 = CND$2.65

the only thing about england is that if you pay $1 in the u.s. for something, you'll pay £1 in england, but in essence you're paying almost 2x than in the u.s.

like i saw a dell laptop . . .

they were selling it for £799

the same laptop in the u.s. in $799!!

so . . . i would try to buy from canada or the u.s. . . . CHEAPER!

I live in London and over here we call it rip-off Britton.
Everything is always more expensive here.
Recently went to visit friends in Vancouver. All electronics are cheaper over there.
