Xela - Buying Laptops

Post by Trapperjohn22 »


I will be in Xela for a few weeks and I am looking for recommendations on the best places to buy laptops. I have been into Techno Facil and Elektra near Central Park, which seem to have some expensive compared to the USA computers. There is a pawn shop next door (Guatepredara) that I can't visit until Monday that seems to have a few computers.

Has any had any success buying a laptop in Xela? Is the pricing and quality of computers (outdated/lack of range) pretty standard here? Has anyone bought a computer from the pawn shop before?

Alternatively should I consider buying on amazon in USA and having it freighted by courier?? A cost estimate was around 100USD from USA to Xela for a laptop sized package (not sure if that inckudes any duties into Guat?) Has anyone done something like this?
