Just bought a lenovo thinkpad X201 i5 with 128gb SSD for silly money in the us and have arranged delivery internally to a friend in Wisconsin.
Will ask them to forward ship it to me direct but I am worried that I will get clobbered on tax duty
The machine cost $180 (about £110) but I read that purchases under £135 aren't too expensive on duty.
Naturally I don't want to risk the machine being confiscated at customs due to non payment of duty or taxes
Does anyone know the best way to go about this to ensure a smooth delivery process?
Appreciate any input whatsoever
