    You have a much more diverse range of products sold than the stores I've seen here! Norton and McAfee are pretty much the only ones I've seen, sadly.

    Here in Canada stores are full of CA and people with some kind of site licences that can install as many as they want (thats what I was told).

    Also Norton 2007 $39.99 and McAfee 2007 $44.99 are available. As I could see many people use eBay to get these because they can get a lot better deal....

    Once I saw F-Secure IS 2006 and TrendMicro IS at Staples. They were around $60 as I remember.

    I never saw Kaspersky, Panda, BitDefender....

    Go to Frys.com, tigerdirect.com or newegg.com and you can usually find a full value mail-in rebate for many of the AV's you list. It is kinda hit or miss but if you check over the course of a couple/three weeks you will usually find a rebate for what you want to buy.

    Yeah Fry's Electronics is a great place to find AV rebates. The local Fry's in my area carries F-Secure, CA, McAfee, Tend, Norton, Kaspersky and Panda usually with nice rebates... I try not to go there as much since I usually come out broke. :cautious: Fry's current AV price list

    PS: The per capita monthly income is about 80€ in the big cities in China.

    MS Windows XP Home sold 150€ (RMB 1498 ) and MS Office 2003 sold 420€ (RMB 4212 ) here.

    People here must work for 6 months to buy a MS Office 2003 !

    Then you know why there are so many people who use pirated software in China.

    Its almost the same case here in India. Prices of software, especially Windows and Office, are far too high. Piracy is rampant. :(
