    Hi All,

    Could you please let me know, is there any UK online shop proving the possibility of buying in bounds(£) and delivering the notebook in Switzerland ?

    Kindly let me know.

    Thanks.

    This is hard to verify without going through the checkout process but...

    I believe Apple now allows you to buy from out-of-region Apple Stores so you could shop on the UK store and "gift purchase" the notebook in pounds and actually get it delivered to a Swiss address from the Swiss Apple Store. Also, I believe Dixons allows you to purchase in UK but set delivery address for another EU country so that might work as well.

    Good luck :)

    The problem is that Switzerland is not in the EC - so taxes will still be due.

    Is the easiest thing not to get a cheap flight to the UK (EasyJet ?) and then purchase from Dixon's Tax-Free at the airport. You will save the UK VAT - so about 13% saving from UK prices - a saving of over £100 on the cheapest MacBook (which should cover the cost of the flight!!)
