    Default Want to know more...

    Well, may I know the approximate prices of laptops & desktops, cars, books...etc... in NZ? I am wondering should I buy them in my country and get them to NZ or it is cheaper if I buy after I am in NZ?

    sometimes this country charge more on the taxes for electronic items or vehicles and that country charge more taxes on books ... so, just to check...

    sorry for being sounding so stupid but any help is appreciated.

    I have no knowledge of prices in your country Xueli nor many prices of things in NZ but I do know that books are renowned to be quite expensive in NZ.
