Hey all! I checked the forum and google but couldn't find anything recent enough to be applicable to my situation. Sorry if I have missed something. I am from the UK and am looking at getting the highest end Macbook Pro, it is looking to cost about £2200. My best mate is from the states however and could pick me up one for about $2000, which is damn near a $1500 difference! I was wondering what would happen if he shipped it to me from the states. Import tax? VAT? Fines? Would taking it out of the packaging make a difference? Currently, it would be cheaper for me to fly to the US and buy it then it would be for me to buy from the UK. Anyway, thank you for reading! Thoughts?
