Found 4th Nov 2008
got this on my christmas list :D, as i have 140gb's of music nearly, and cannot live without it, but as the 160gb has been discontinued for the 120 :(, i'm on the lookout for a new one now, there's still many us sites selling for around $300, but i'm not sure which one to choose, i'm looking for a us/eu one (as they don't have the volume limit)

what places do worldwide shipping, preferrebly free? and if i bought apple care protection plan on this, would it be valid in the uk?

help pweeeeez

If you get it shipped from the US you are likely to incur Vat charges when it enters the UK.
You might be lucky but i have been caught a few times and it adds £20+ onto the price!


if it get stops at customs those charges cn be a night mare i got £130 charge from customs for buy skates from the usa and having them shipped over here i think it all depends on the weight of the item.
