Thanks for the quick reply. I gave a call to Apple Japan that was in your link.

While they were able to give me assurance that a MBP could come with an English OS and keyboard, they told me they couldn't do anything with the price.

Unfortunately, Japan's entry MBP is about $2500, while the US is at $2000.

I can get the education discount in either store, but even then I'm being overcharged $500. (Not exact, it's probably closer to $400)

I wish I knew someone in Apple that could pull a few strings. I don't mind paying full retail for a US MBP, but I'd rather not be raped an extra $500 from Apple Japan.

I really wish I knew what customs would charge if I get it sent to my parents first.
