I have been searching around for the best price for the R1 and it looks like the Canadian sites are selling it cheaper (after i convert canadian to american dollars) plus they have it in stock sooner. The other site I was thinking of buying from is ExcaliberPC but they might not have it in stock buy the time I buy it (March 10th) So I'm afraid i'm being put on a backorder list with excaliberPc. Does anyone have any suggestions on which site I should buy from? Is it going to be a hassle buying from a Canadian Site? Is the Canadian R1 the same as the American R1? Any answers or cautions I should be afraid of would be gratefully appreciated.
