    Wow, that's a huge difference. The NZ price for the base model is within $2 of the AU price at current exchange rates, but SG is almost AU$400 cheaper! :eek:

    With the 12 core 2.93GHz, its 1,245.17 AUD cheaper getting it from Singapore. Sing GST is 7%, AUS GST is 10%, its negligible. Return flight to Sing is $700 AUD with Emirates. Save $400'ish and have a holiday

    Sure, I'd like to see how customs will let you through the gate without paying your duties.

    5% duty + 10% GST.

    I'm still saving.

    And can claim the GST on BAS

    Well...what are you waiting for? A 7-10 day delivery delay for online orders so I'd better make sure that there is a MP waiting for you on the other side to pick up.
