Go for gold - a lot cheaper and better spec than Media Markt and the std offerings over here - I doubt that STEG would be able to match or better - and more importantly everything is in English and I do not have to battle with the language issue. (Yes, I know I should be speaking Swiss-DE or German but sometimes it is not that easy....)

not so!!

I bought this from steg
http://www.steg-electronics.ch/de/ar...ox-497553.aspx
pcspecialist quote for a lesser spec (no usb3) is £405

stegs price 379chf

with the benefit of if it breaks I can drive to them and replace it

pay your money and you take your chance

ETA, sorry, £326 once I removed the OS (which is roughly 456chf)

Re: VAT / Import question

It's unlikely, but, what if you get a problem with the PC or it's DOA?
That's any saving lost in return postage etc. You can't even take it apart and send the faulty part as that'll invalidate any warranty.

I'm pretty sure STEG will assemble and bench test a PC of your own spec.

In any case, good luck and I hope it works out for you.

Re: VAT / Import question

books and medication can be brought in to a value of 200 chf without tax. Anyone know if the medication part applies only to prescription medicine or does it count for over-the-counter medicines which are just weaker doses of prescription medicine?

You are allowed to bring in CHF 300- of goods without tax, if you are importing them personally. This applies to medicines as well.

You are only allowed to import a one-month supply of medicines, and there are certain products must be accompanied by the original doctor's prescription. You can find more information on the Swissmedic website.
