My wife and I are moving to Japan October 24. We currently live in Canada. Like many other committed and focused individuals, I've been waiting for the release of new MBP. I, like most are hoping this next week will bring the intro of these new machines. However, I also know that there is a possibility that, if there is going to be a new mbp release, it may come later, maybe some time in October. Furthermore, if they do release it next week, I'm sure there is also a chance for quite a backorder on them. I am ready to buy the day it is released. IF it is released, let's say next week, but they are really backordered by the time I try to get mine. The date of them shipping mine runs into days after we leave Canada. Can I, instead have it shipped to Japan or to a store in Japan where I could pick it up? What IF the mbp does not get released till after my departure date. Can I order one with English keyboard in Japan? What is shipping costs, and extra charges, such as taxes in Japan for electronics? Altogether, is it more expensive to buy it in Japan vs. Canada. Lots of questions in this post, but hope you can be of help with some of them! Any tips or advice for my situation would be really appreciated.
