Nope. The climate here is the same as in Germany, Italy, France, UK & the continental United States.
I did not beleived-it myself until i saw two HP laptops side by side. Same model. One was sold here, the other belonged to someone from UK. Move 30 degrees to left and right, the colours on the LCD of the UK one were okay, on the other one they were shifting towards bue/green or magenta. The plastics on the "for emerging markets" one were shiny-er - with a "cheap chinese toy" look. Battery life on the UK one was longer (both were about the same age) and it booted and ran faster than the other one. Same model, same CPU speed, only a few of the letters at the end of the model were different.
