Are Third World countries paying more?
Are Third World countries paying more for First World products using their Third World salaries? The Hyperwage book shows many comparisons. On a more practical level here are current prices of laptops from an authorized dealer who is one of the low-cost sellers in Golden Shopping Arcade in Hong Kong. Compare their prices to the prices you pay in your country (and by the way, does your country offer the OLD phased out models?) http://www.centralfield.com/index.php/notebook/asus.html The website gives the specs in English, and the price in HK$.
