Hi there, I am purchasing a MacBook 2.4GHz this summer. I will be purchasing just before going on holidays to Italy. I will be getting it through the higher education store from the UK. I am flying from Dublin (Ireland) to Rome. Is there some sort of way to get duty free on the MacBook? Also - would it be better if I bought the MacBook on the US store, got someone over there I know to collect it and ship it to me? Would it work out at a better value? Thanks guys.
