    Can I please, please order my iMac at UK and let it be send to the Netherlands? :) That would be less 300 EUROS for me (same model)...

    Is this possible, or to the send you to NL store?

    Doubtful, knowing Apple.

    When I lived in Paris, I was trying to buy a Mac from the UK store, wanting UK plug, UK keyboard, to pay with my UK Credit Card.....
    Apple refused to ship from the UK store to a French address. To ship to a French address, I was told I had to buy from the French store.

    I guess it would be the same situation for Netherlands.

    Wonder if it is due to legal issues like taxes?

    You can get return flights and a hostel for the night all for less than 100€ so you'd still save 200€.

    Serious. That's what I was thinking. You could probably fly, buy, put in empty suitcase, fly back, all in one day.

    Japan VS USA

    I'm an American living in the Japan. I have some friends still at home in the states so I just ordered my computer with my US bank account, shipped it to them, and had them ship it to me after they got it.

    Apple's international pricing has not changed since the economy went to hell with made the Yen more powerful than it ever has. Apple just seemed to not notice this and stuck with their old prices.

    For example, the Macbook Pro that I ordered from the US store cost $3,198.00. The EXACT SAME machine in Japan would have cost 373,220 Yen (or 4,193 U.S. dollars).

    THAT'S A 1000 US DOLLAR PRICE DIFFERENCE. WTF? APPLE?

    I did call to see if I could pay with my American credit card and ship to a Japanese address. They said no, so I said **** Apple and ordered it as described above.

    IF ANYONE FROM APPLE IS READING THIS! FIX YOUR ****ING INTERNATIONAL PRICES. THEY ARE ABOUT A YEAR OLD!

    (but I guess if they had time on their hands they would have shipped a new iMac and mac mini, lazy ****s)
