Get a US Mail Forwarding Address Here or Here (that one you can pay for just one time use) after you have your address buy from the apple us store and have it shipped to the US Address they then forward it to the UK. This is the only option i can think of but with all the charges involved shipping and all there is no benefit to importing unless your going on holiday over there (Which is what i do go on holiday then buy a laptop if i need one). Hope it helps.

MegaRoss has a little shameless behaviour in the past

you'll just get import tax added and it'll cost you the same or more in the end mate.

just use the UK store.

I think apple dealers are not allowed to allow this sort of grey channel imports

You could try northy's method or

Have a friend in the US ship[ iyt to you

Look on ebay and ask the seller if they will ship to the UK

Expect a nice VAT bill from the revenue a few weeks after it has arrived (unless you get lucky)

Actually Import duty don't apply to PC/Laptops but VAT does just 17.5% which is high. Use the UK Store cheaper
