I have been at my wit's end trying to find a Core 2 Duo (preferably 2.33GHz) based Celsius H240 workstation, despite it being launched about half a year ago. The older Core Duo versions are all over the place, but I don't want to buy a new notebook with obsolete technology inside. I do not understand why the Core 2 Duo versions are so difficult to find!
Memory I don't really care about (I want 2GB, but I'm prepared to buy that separately), hard disc should be 100-120GB (but that's not too important as I can replace that also), and the CPU should be a 2.33GHz Core 2 Duo (but at a stretch I'd settle for a 2.00GHz Core 2 Duo). I want a UK keyboard.
At a stretch, I'd be prepared to buy a 2GHz model from Germany and buy a UK keyboard to be fitted by a Fujitsu-Siemens authorised repair centre. However, actually finding information about FJC SKUs is about as difficult as getting blood out of a stone.
Either I'm missing something really obvious, or the head of the Marketing department should be sent to Japan to explain themselves, in no less than ten separate boxes.
What would happen if I weren't so keen on buying this model? Is FJC actually in the business of selling notebooks, or does it just pretend to? If I ran a company and make it so difficult to get hold of parts (when the competition makes it so easy by comparison), I would not expect to stay in business for very long. In fact, I'm amazed that you're still in the notebook market.
