Has anyone ordered an iPod mini in the UK yet, whether from the UK itself or imported from overseas?



A quick kelkoo search seems to give the cheapest UK one to be 174.99 from the likes of comet or on amazon

Amazon availability seems to be 4-6 weeks.

The apple.com store lists the mini iPod at $249 which seems to be around 137 at todays' rates, still over 20% cheaper. Since UK availability is low and the US prices are a lot cheaper this seems like another option except for duty charges and so forth.

I have not ordered hardly anything from the US except from some small items on ebay so am not sure how the duty works, especially when ordering from the official shops.

Is there anyway to get these imported without paying high duty charges, whether this be through the apple store or simply through a friend living in the US who can post?

might be worth crusing by any apple retailers etc, i belive some do have them in stock. not living nr any i can't vouch personally.

as to duty charges well if its send to you, it might get intersepted and you'd get asked to pay the vat by your postie, so that wouldn't garantie that, other ways are if you quailfy as a student? can get them cheaper not much admitly but cheaper never the less on the education store, i have just ordered a 20GB ipod that way.

So, is it legal to order iPod from US Amazon if I'm in UK ? - Seems to be cheaper even with shipping...

and then you pay VAT when customs impound your parcel on the way into the country.
Still might be cheaper though, don't forget you'll need a power adaptor or alternative charger (unless you only charge from USB)
