Have just ordered a Mac mini and a Mac Book off the Apple site here in Spain. I thought about buying them in the States and getting them shipped here but by the time I added the cost of shipping and the ‘risk’ of customs, compared to the VAT that I claim back in Europe through my business, no delivery costs or insurance/customs risks it was only marginally more to buy them here.
After all the problems I had before with TNT I am somewhat skeptical BUT I have emailed the guy a Apple that helped me last time and given him the order number. He has said he will try and ensure all goes well!
I have received the confirmation email so the clock starts ticking now! Although it says they should ship in 3 business days, it seems like they are saying delivery around the 10th May.
At least that gives me a couple of days to work out what data is going to go where!
