I'm soon going to visit the states and I was considering buying a MBP there seen as the price difference is huge compared to European prices: ($1200~850 << 1150). I was just wondering if their were any cons to buying the MBP in America. Can you guys name any? Furthermore, the risk of asking taxes back at US customs is that I should declare the laptop on the way back at local customs forcing me to pay local taxes. Smuggling the laptop in isn't too much of a problem but I want to be able to keep the case. If I don't declare the taxes in the US, do I still have to pay my local taxes at declaration? Finally, I own a company (v. small) and thus don't need to pay taxes when purchasing the laptop locally. Does this give me an advantage when purchasing the MBP in America? Thanks in advanced.
