    Unfortunately Apple only ship to places where they have stores / online stores.

    But look on the local classified web site. Something similar to Craigslist.org
    You might be able to pick something up locally.

    it cost me 8500AED for MBP unibody 2.4ghz which is 2 314.125 U.S. dollars

    well there is an offical partner but it's even more expensive (AED 8,899) which is 2 422 U.S. dollars. and they are not even the offical i.e (no genus bar etc.. the thing you guys get T_T) i don't know why apple don't open a store at Dubai, it's an international city and well there aren't much mac users but there is a noticeable amount, but the thing is they can get money from ipods and other products as well as showing people macs when they come to the store.

    the last thing that here in UAE we don't feel the Apple tax because other companies i.e (dell and HP) take more money here so the prices are almost same

    perhaps ask a family member or a friend to buy it and ship it to you?

    that's what i was willing to do (my uncles live in Canada and US), but if you add tax + shipping. there will be little difference, well it will be about 200$ i guess it's not little XD and ya second thing i won't get the support etc and finally i will have to ship it everything it have problem unless i get apple care.

    what if i wanted Mac Pro XD it's 20kg LOL it will cost me it's price to ship lol.

    anyways i will be moving to US soon so i will not suffer the tech problems here XD
