World market ( relatively speaking ) imho , not much in it. Better choice in the UK.

Cheers Steve I already have a good laptop which I plan on bringing with me. I already know I have to register my UK mobile within 120 days but are there any similar rules re bringing laptops in from UK? Thanks

No such rules for laptops or other electronics unless you're using a 3/4G router or USB dongle then buy those in Turkey

Re: Laptop and mobile phone costs

The other thing to remember about laptops in Turkey is that they all come with a Turkish keyboard, which can be annoying if you are used to a UK one.

If you order an English keyboard here in Turkey it will normally be a USA one and not a UK one, so the @ key amongst others are placed elsewhere.

Check your guarantee if bringing with you for extended stay.
