    I'm interested in this:

    Within insured shipping it works out around £2100. We're on quite good terms with the local delivery people so hopefully I won't pay tax on arrival.

    I'm curious, do I need to change the PSU? I could just buy a power cable in advance from UK Apple?

    Also, with Applecare, can I buy a US Applecare and register it in the UK?

    Anyone else have any stories about buying a Mac abroad?

    It's nothing to do with delivery people, it has to go through customs and you will be paying the £350 or so in VAT.

    Power cable.

    You can buy UK Applecare as far as I know, not the US version.
