You should probably ask this on the correct Philippines forum then.

Buy it in the UK then you know you have a decent guarantee. Plenty of offers at the moment if you search for them.

Always buy in the country you spend most time or region to ensure warranty coverage. If buy in UK or Dubai you will get EMEA coverage and so will not be covered in the Philippines.

If you buy laptop in transit at Dubai dutyfree, more often than not you will have to compromise on the model, specifications, etc. In your home ground you can get a laptop tailored to your requirement.
