Is it worth it to but a computer without the vat? or wil they just jack p the prices?

Are there any good computer shops (prefarably a naional chain?)

Any info would be helpful.

Hi there!

The “No VAT” arrangement in Eilat is actually only for Eilat residents! For small/cheap products no one pays attention, but when it comes to buying products that are several 1000 shk worth, you might not get a VAT free price in the first place. Personally I don’t recall someone mentioning a computer purchased in Eilat.

As for recommended shops: Israeli’s hardly buy “brand name” computers – “white box” are the ones most common. It means you purchase a computer as a list of components and their lab would “build’ your computer within a few days. There are many such shops/labs: nearly all would not have a “fancy” design but rather be located in semi industrial areas and resemble a warehouse.

One provider that is well known is “Ivory”

They have branches in most districts. Since the whole industry of the “white box” PC’s is highly competitive, there would be hardly any nation wide known seller with a perfect reputation.
