    Wait until it is released in Europe (even if it doesn't come to Norway yet), and then you can import it without any duty as it's within the EFTA. :)

    Remember you might also have to pay toll + norwegian sales tax if customs pick it up. I know Danish customs are pretty adept at picking out shipments from the US.

    How would you do that though since you can't order to another country in the apple store? The UK apple store only delivers to UK.

    UK release is scheduled for 'late April' currently. Certainly not waiting until July or something!

    It isn't necessary to buy it from Apple. I'm quite sure lots of third parties will be selling it.

    Well im just quoting a apple premim retailer at the local apple store here in norway. He said summer. Allthough he was just guessing.

    But the thing is that i have the dreaded wait for the iphone back in my mind (when it was orginally launched). That was many many months of waiting. And since its NADA information of price/launch, im kinda leaning against importing one.

    Like who? BestBuy didn't get to sell it online. If you mean Ebay sellers then it would be at a premium.

    The United States is a whole different world. Apple products can be bought almost anywhere in the UK. Whether everywhere will have them at release is a different matter, but Apple definitely do not restrict who resells for them over here.

    Okay if you say so, but I've tried to find an UK online shop that would sell and ship from UK to Denmark with no luck when I was buying MBP.
