You'd still get it cheaper at Best Buy. <g>
You'd also get an English-language manual. (Flimsy attempt at keeping

Akihabara's a great place to visit, but buying is only for those who
must have the latest gadgets. You'll save more by waiting six months for
the product to appear in your home market.
