Possible restrictions in lead content maybe? Different regulations I think. I know we've had problems with that in the past.

To be honest I'm no expert on that particular issue. I just know we had issues getting some Cisco kit sent from there.

aaah ok - if you know a retailer who does shipping from US and is trustworthy please do drop a note :)

Most of the big companies do not take international orders, I am not sure why though. You may get hit with tax, probably still be cheaper though.

newegg.com which seems to be popular with the americans would get a real good turn from the UK if it done international orders, just checked to see if there has been any change since last time I checked :

Does Newegg.com ship internationally?
Newegg.com does not currently ship internationally; we only deliver to locations within the United States and to Puerto Rico

Stupid if you ask me, I am sure they have a reason though.

Someone will have some better advice don't worry. My last company did get a load of old servers sent over privately mind.

What sort of savings are you looking at on average? I remembering looking on a site before and the savings weren't significant enough after postage to be worth the hassle of it becoming faulty or something.

quite considerable savings on parts like mentioned above newegg.com is a great place to check comparisons from uk retailers -

as an example a laptop system from dell -

the alienware m11x in america standard costs

$749

in the uk the standard costs -

£749

ridiculous if you ask me

Ah right, full systems definitely worth the hassle if you can get it cheap enough sent over here.

i have orded a few bits by mail..once customs charged me- the second time i got away with it, and the third time- i just ask my cousin to buy and get the stuff shipped to him and then when someone is about to visit the uk, i ask em to bring it over.. have bought an external hdd, a memory pen thinigie and a cooling fan wotsit for the cpu... but nowt in the last two years though. even back then the £ was really strong and even with custom charges the stuff was cheaper
