    Do you guys know any online-stores in USA that would sell & ship an iPod (and maybe some other stuff as well, like charger and dock) to Europe? the reason I'm asking is that they are considerably cheaper in USA than in Europe. Take 16GB iPod touch for example. It costs $399 in USA, and 409€ in Finland. With current exchange-rate, if I bought it from USA, it would cost me 289€ (!!!!!). I don't know about you, but the price-difference is HUGE.

    Of course, there's the shipping-expense, and maybe customs...

    Bear in mind that any charger you get wouldn't work out of the box in the UK. We have different currents and plugs over here.

    Which is most of the reason why it costs more for you. Apple USA Store isn't going to ship to Europe. But you could try a retailer like Amazon or something

    Yeah, my plan was to not use Apple store or something like that :). And thanks for reminding me about voltages and power-plugs, it seems that I would have to get that extra charger from Finland after all....

    You could get a friend in the US to ship it to you as a "gift" ;)
