But do add on the delivery price. Dabs will charge you IEP£24 to ship it to
you so total price is £102.40.
At least with marx I get it mostly next day, and if anything goes wrong I
don't have to fork out another £24 to get it to dabs...
I agree most prices are higher than in the UK, but I think you'll find that
the case with all resellers in Ireland. This is because of the small market
here in Ireland.
For small items it's hard to justify an extra £24 delivery from dabs,
jungle or others. And if your not too comfortable with importing (most
newbies aren't) then someone like marx-computers is a welcome sight.
And on the 1/3 extra bit I know for a fact they don't get the bulk of their
stock from the UK!
