    Any electronic device that sells for $250 in the US sells for appr. 250 Euros in Germany, France, Austria, Belgium, etc.. And that is because of the different tax structure. At least that was my experience in the last 50 years of which I lived 20 years in the US and the rest in different European countries.

    Btw: an item that is advertised at $250 in the US does not sell for $250 either. Taxes are never included in the advetised prices (which e.g. in Germany would be illegal). Reason is because US sales tax is a local tax that varies from county to county. Here in Florida where I spend my winters it is currently 6.5% and that goes on top of anything you buy - except for many food items.

    It is partly due to vat at 20%. The rest is partly due to other very high taxes on petrol, business rates, etc.

    It often works out about 60% more than the US price.

    Brink just answered my question in another post.
    Windows 8.1 update

    Unfortunately, it appears that you will need to running Windows 8.1 to have the Windows 8.1 Update available in Windows Update when released on April 8th.
    Thanks Brink.

    I'm already running the leaked version so I haven't done anything except download the ISO and the stand alone update. Time to make some new bootable thumb drives I think. I may have a go at making a new Windows to go drive tonight, or maybe tomorrow. I'm sipping on a rum and coke so it may be tomorrow.

    I had to do the gpedt in this, How to Enable and Use Internet Explorer 11?s Enterprise Mode to get the Enterprise Mode option to show up in the tools menu in IE. I don't know if that is SOP or not as I'm running the leaked update 1. This is a FYI post.
