Amazon.cn doesn't seem to have an English option...

Shopping in Beijing?

I'm going to Beijing in May, and want to buy some electronics and other stuff. I wondered if there is a website where I can find prices for different goods, and if there were comparisons to prices in the US/Europe I'd be thrilled. Any other tips are also welcome. (I'm from Norway, so anything will be cheap for me...)
