    Hello,

    I am moving very soon to Australia, currently I live in Canada. I was wondering if it is cheaper down there to buy one or cheaper in Canada to buy one. If in Canada, than what would I do about the different voltages?

    A reply A.S.A.P. would mean a lot,

    Thanks,

  2. I dont know about prices but dont worry about voltages. Most monitors support both so all you have to do is just cut off the part that connects to the wall and replace it (no biggy).

    This is an australian price checking site - www.razorprices.com great to find the cheapest prices in australia. Whereabouts are you moving to? My favourite site for QLD prices - www.umart.com.au :)

    Hmm... well the cheapest LCD I have seen is a 15" Viewmaster, which sells for roughly $420AUD.

    Team,

    I'm not much on exchange into AUD $ but the lowest cost supplier in North America I've found (I travel around a lot...) is Generic Computers at:

    hxxp://www.genericcomputer.bc.ca/

    LCD Panel :

    15"Philips 150S Super Slim $369

    17"Acer AL715 500:1 *$489

    17"NEC ASLCD7V 16ms response time $599

    Of course these are Canadian $$ off their Site this minute. I hope this is helpful.

    Regards,

    Jim:cool:
