Very interesting, thanks. Perhaps there is a tax or tariff involved.
The profit margin seems too excessive not to be undercut by competition. France and Holland are close.
Yup, I bought my laptop in France. Disadvantage of that is that it has a French keyboard and not a Belgian keyboard (both are azerty keyboards but a Belgian keyboard combines keys typical for the French language but also keys useful for the Dutch language).
In The Netherlands, computers have a querty keyboard and I'm used to an azerty keyboard so France it is for computer shopping.
