The rip-off nature of the EU

My laptop, a Fujitsu Lifebook P-2046, was recently sent in for service because it wouldn’t consistently charge its batteries. After some testing, they found my AC adapter is at fault. They can send my laptop back with a new one, if I’d like—for €150 + 21% VAT to a total of €181.50. That’s about $229.00 US. Or, I could get one from a company in the US for $49 and figure out a way to get it to me here in Ireland.

I asked them to just send it back, please. Why is everything so blatantly overpriced?
