    If you undervalue, you risk losing if it goes missing in the post. Custom's scan all goods so its not like they won't know its a laptop.
    my mate purchased 5 sony vaios from the US for 1,300 each when they cost around nearly 3k here at the time. the guy who sent it put its value on the parcel stating its total value is $999 and he recieved it in a week with no tax. but its a bit suss for customs as they can catch you if you do this on a regular basis to the same street address. but if you just order one thing for personal use i guess its highly unlikely they will open the box to check the value (unless it has narcotics or ninja stars ).

    That's a pretty good price.

    Nice one lukemc! I think that's a great bargain. Definitely making the next MB look very buy-able soon!

    Edit: I just went through to the Ebay link and it's seems there's more.. so much cheaper than AU pricing. I really wonder how they do it.

    hmmmmmmmm lets just say i was very happy

    I dunno how they do it, not much margin i guess. My price worked out to be just off $100 less than shelf price in the US once it was converted. The there was postage.......

    Hey Luke, did you work out if Apple AU would give you support if you hadn'y got the extended warranty yet?
    Also you got the model without anti-glare I suppose? Do you think you will buy an anti-glare protector?

    i registered it and then checked my warranty status online and it says its covered, ill be buying applecare anyway really.

    I love the screen so not too worried about the anti glare, i suppose if given the option i might have purchased it with the anti glare built in but im not really fussed
