For $500, you can get a round-trip ticket back home to pick up your Macbook!

While I think it's always better to buy locally, for no other reason than the fact that if you have a problem or warranty claim, I feel it's better to deal with the store you bought it from, don't rule-out having your parents shipping it to you. To my recollection, Japan no longer has duties on computer equipment. If that is the case, then spending $50 (just a wild guess) to have it shipped express, insured would well be worth it.

Check the tariff schedule below (I didn't see any mention of computers), and with the Japanese customs office to reconfirm if you decide to go down this route.

Happy to be back to a Mac
