You might be better trying to buy one online from Britain, Usa or Australia and have it shipped there. I had someone install some Chines programs on my old laptop and for some reason some things would just default to Mandarin randomly. If no one was there who could understand and help me I was stuck.

If you take a trip to Shanghai, go to Media Markt. You can buy an actual computer with an official, registered copy of Windows (in English or even German, Dutch, etc.)

NEVER NEVER EVER trust those "computer markets" that have to install Windows on the computer for you. It's a hacked version that's LOADED with spyware, adware, and other bullcrap. So are the 7rmb versions you buy on the street.

Be a man (or woman) and just pony up the cash for a real version of Windows. Some places will even special order them for you. If cash is an issue, I'd try a torrent site - might take a while to download from here, but at least it won't have the virus crap that comes with the Chinese versions.

Anything from an actual name brand store will have this for you. If you're looking for a cheaper version of Windows 7, it can find it, but it updates ifself, the minute you log on and the operating system updates itself, it will shut your system down. If you find someone to block that problem, most of your applications will not work

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
