Now, are there any good US sales at the moment? ;):D


Just remember that this is the 'trade' rate and the Customs bods will still be using the official Government rate. Whatever that is...

[edit] Apparently it will be 1.9596 until the end of April..see http://customs.hmrc.gov.uk/channelsPortalWebApp/channelsPortalWebApp.portal?_nfpb=true&_pageLabel=pageVAT_RatesCodesTools&propertyType=document&id=HMCE_PROD1_027261

If you are buying through the post, then you will be done by customs. If you are going over there, then just check that it comes with an int'l warranty.
Probably not worth it when customs get their hands on it then, just checked a couple of US stores... a Macbook worked out £100 cheaper than with the NUS discount here, but the hassle and customs and everything will end up making it over £100 to get it here if there are any problems.

Might have to get a few cheap DVDs in though!
