The fact that the price is higher, its ridiculous. A T400 which costs $850 in the US costs $1600 in Europe (€1100)!!!
I can take that - its market economics - more computers are sold in the US.
But not offering all options in Europe? That's just plain disrespect.
Not to mention that their European website is not working properly. Go here http://www.pc.ibm.com/europe/thinkpad/?europe&epi=web_express&cc=europe and click on any "View Series" link. It will just go to a stupid page saying "TopSeller: whatever" (whatever being the model name).
Even less option in Australia, and less still in China from the official channel.
