Electronics tend to be cheaper here than abroad. And it doesn't take long to adapt to a Swiss keyboard. The symbols are in different places, but you soon learn to swap Z and Y around. May be a cheaper solution.

With practice you can switch between QWERTZ and QWERTY. And yes, I do touch type.
some people have a harder time than others, but the worst is switching around all the time.
But if you only ever use your own PC, you can keep the layout you're used to.

I think the main thing is: you don't need Y to be written in the right place if you learn how to touch-type, or if you just know they're switched.
So who cares about physical layout, as long as it's not the weird one with the elongated enter button.

But if OP is happy with the computer they found, with their own layout, then more power to them.
