I am currently on my travels and are thinking of buying a PB 12" SD before I return home. I have the following standard prices from Apple in the countries that I am visiting and the UK price, which is where I live:

UK = 1199.01
Australia = AU$2749.00 (1170.50 using dashboard converter)
US = US$1699 (955.00 using dashboard converter)

If I purchase in Australia, I can claim 1/11th of the purchase price back due to tax free shopping - This would equate to approx a 125 rebate.

Obviously, this is still more expensive than the US version but I am not sure about any rebates available in the US or any import duties that I may have to pay when I enter the UK. Can anybody give advice?

Thanks

Just this week, late September, the J&R ad in the NYTimes had a 12" PB with superdrive for 1699 $US. You can check them online to see if they shipt to UK and what duties would be.
