if you want new, your prolly best of with Mediamarkt, FNAC, Vandenborre.

If you're willing to so for secnd hand, get off the metro an head south on Bvd Anspach (the recently pedestranised street). Once you pass Bourse, there are a number of places that sell second had laptops, on both sides of the steet. And normally they sell with a 3-6 month guarantee. And you'll get alot more PC for yur maney that way.... or pay alot less than a brand spanking new PC.

Qwerty keyboard may be a problem though. Although, you get used to azerty pretty quick. I've worked in alot of countries an new keyboard layouts are initially irritating, but you do get used to them quickly.

Hi,

Thanks for your feedback, I don't trust the shops on Andspach/ lemonnier, I was looking for something similar to Alien PC where I can customise the components. The likes of mediamarkt vandenborre and fnac don't have great after sales service. Maybe I should try the UK.

try www.seerz.com in Hasselt, they speak English / Dutch / French / German ....
and do customize re to your needs - have a good customer after sales service, by remote or on-site service.

Don't know what happened there!
Places which are not selling ready-made Dell, HP and so on.
And, as has already been said, don't worry about the keyboard layout, you'll very quickly adjust to AZERTY.
