    I see - the WS brochure quoting the prices in dollar$ should have been a clue...

    Are there any other differences between the two? Given it has DVI Is there any reason for not prefering the WS aside from price?

    j0nners,
    I don't think that you can buy the US model over here, but if you could it would be a grey unit and may well not be covered by the Fujitsu warranty.

    MAW will be able to tell you more.

    No more to tell, it's been said. No warranty on a us import, AFAIK. You'll also be clobbered with duties and tariffs various, and VAT, and the yanks don't let you duck out of any local tax.

    Would it be possible to replace the ES's PE1300 video board with the WS's ?

    Possibly but you'll only get one from a far east supplier. Then if it doesn't work, or worse, causes a problem, you are in the doo. Blame the EC for introducing the 14% duty on HDCP devices.

    I recently read that Fujitsu are bringing out a board with DVI for the UK market at around £100.

    Im hoping that the information is accurate but i wont hold my breath! :suicide:

    Kash Gill said that it was impossible for dvi to be added to the current models.

    Spoke to Fujitsu today, no dvi, no not ever, for current models. Future models will no doubt have it put back on, but don't ask me when, Fujitsu UK could not answer that one
