    Doesn't the 32gb work out around £391? Surely the case isn't £59?

    Or have you added tax too?

    Hi,

    I have a friend in NYC too and I want him to sand me an iPad to Spain. Which taxes are those that you mentioned? Only the shipping or also customs?

    Thanks in advance! ;)

    That's just New York tax! It's around 10% i think.. my friend is gonna stick it in her suitcase so hopefully i will avoid import tax etc.

    Well done to the OP! Wish I could have done something like this, but don't know anyone who'll be in the US before the end of the month :(
