Eh?

So round that down to £1 = $2 and you have 1250 x 2 = $2500 for the non-special edition of the P08.

That's the price I imagined and it's still $500 more than you play. In actual fact we are paying $1000 more than you at Turnkey.

Wierd. Everywhere I've checked puts the current value at UK £1 = 1.364 U.S. dollars.

What google source did you use?

This is fricking fantastic. You've spent 2 whole pages bickering about the correct conversion rates between USD and GBP. Can one get more off-topic?

1 GBP = $2.01

Is that a challenge?

Personally, I bet Liberace's socks smelled way better than Bach's. Probably ate more bananas.

Okay, but seriously now...*writes something about the Prophet and other countries*...

Absolutely. I was stoked on the 2K pricetag before but now that I got the pund/euro thing worked out I'm even more excited :D

Alot of dealers sell on eBay. Can't you use that as a workaround?

As Bitexion says, chaps - you can discuss exchange rates in Off Topic.

Please remain on-topic in this one.

At the risk of inflaming Jack, anyone figure out how to download these videos? Definitely keepers for a geek like me, but none of my tools work.

In Italy it's 2295 euros (3130 $). Like in britain, but wages here are waaaay lower. :(
