When I ordered my S8 in Apr 2014, the shipping was $98. When I ordered my X2M in April 2015, it was $105.90.

Don't forget t make an allowance for the Import Duty and German VAT (19%?). The VAT is chargeable on the shipping too as it is a Goods and Services tax and shipping counts as a service.

http://www.dutycalculator.com/ will give you the details.

ok, thats the cheapest option available:
Shipping (UPS Online (includes brokerage fee) (Worldwide Expedited)) $119.68
will there be any customs duty or will this just ship right to my house?

If you are in the EU, yes there will be Duty and VAT. The UPS Online fee is just the shipping from CaseLabs to the EU Customs Depot. They will then assess the package for Duty and VAT, notify you via letter, hold it and wait for your payment when they will release it.

Use the DutyCalculator website to work out how much it will come to and allow a little US->Euro exchange fluctuation.

ok i just did and even with 0$ insurance cost, i would pay a total of 790$, thats around 710€. so buying from gamingrigs.de would be around the same price and a lot faster (i live 15 mins away from them) without the hassle of customs

Could you clarify that? Just say if I decided to buy a S8, am I paying what ever is in the cart or is there another hidden fee?

Last question, could you give me an estimate when Gemini will be revealing? First half of 2017 or other half? Last question regarding Gemini, does any version consist of horizontal layout?

Reason for asking is i'm on the fence if i should wait or buy the S8 now if it's a longggg wait...
