    If you can get someone to cart it over it's certainly cheaper, but if you're buying in the US and getting it posted to the UK, they'll hit you up for duty, VAT and a 'handling charge'.

    The PSU on the ACD's purchased in the US will also work in the UK. All you'll need is the correct IEC cable, although a regular IEC kettle lead (5A fuse) should also work.

    you'll still have to pay your taxes on them upon import, it'd just be easier to buy them there or buy a different brand.

    well, a friend in the states is offering to send them over as gifts, and as "faulty" and marked down, so i dont get hit with duty fees. not to mention, if it goes well, could possibly start selling them over here also. does anyone have a link to the cable in question? thanks

    Mislabeling shipped items to avoid costs you would otherwise incur does not sound legal. MacRumors should not be used to get help with this plan.
