Hi, so I bought my 24 Inch iMac 4 Months ago and now I am going for a masters program to Germany for 2.5 years, so I would like to take my iMac with me, ok my options are the following: -Ship it via Fedex to Germany and I pick it up there when I arrive (I don't know what kind of taxes do I need to pay (maybe too much for me) -Take it with me in the flight well packed and documented (I've read in other threads some people have done this but I don't know exactly what kind of protection they have provided) -Carry on is out of the question I think since the size is much larger than any airline will allow. -Sell it and buy a refurb laptop (MBP or MB) and maybe external monitor (although I think it would be much more expensive also in Germany) *A note on this, how much do you think I can get for my iMac in case I decide to sell it?, I bought it as I said 4 months ago 24 inches, 2.4Ghz, 4gb Ram and what would be the best deal for me to buy a refurb MBP (without paying a large difference), I also have a Powerbook G4 1.25Ghz which I'll also sell in case I sell my iMac, which would also help me in getting money for the MBP, how much can I get for this one (any ideas). (I would prefer MBP instead of MB since I own a Powerbook which I love still and would like to stay with the same Performance/Design) Do you guys know about the taxes I need to pay in case of shipping (I would love to keep my iMac and not sell it)? Does it make any difference how long I've had my iMac because I will be flying to Germany in September so it would be already like 8 months old, can it not be shipped as a Personal Item without paying taxes?. I am open to any suggestions that will help either keep my iMac or get the MBP. Thanks guys for any help you can provide.
