Buy Online English Laptops in Japan? 2005/1/13 11:23
I am in Japan - Fukuoka for 6 months and I want to buy a thin (ultraportable) notebook. I saw many good models in shops in Fukuoka, but all are with Japanese keyboard and Japanese XP. So, if anyone can help me please to find a good web-site (in english) for online shoping, where there is info (price and details) about English laptops.
thank you.

You could always buy the Japanese laptop and reload an english version of windows xp. I think this voids the warranty, but if you're not planning to stay in Japan it doesn't matter. Also remeber to purchase the right voltage converters.

Thanks for subbmiting an answer. But my main problem is not the Windows XP on this Japanese laptops, since I already now I can put English Windows instead. Actually my problem is the Japanese keyboard. I am doing a lot of typing and programming on my PC in my profession, so that it is quite inconvenient to use the Japanese keyboard for me.
