New macbook pro i5 13inch- HELP

    Can i get a friend to buy me the macbook pro in new york and ship it over to the uk? If so will it be expensive, will it still work (e.g. will it connect to wifi) ,will i have trouble?




    You wont have a problem.
    However there are risks involved posting it (loss etc)
    you will probably get it held up in customs for VAT due
    you will need to buy an British plug

    [Edit] OH and you will have a US keyboard layout!

    I got my 15" mbp in LA and no issues at all, but as above you may have to pay customs.

    what is the keyboard difference?:D

    US and UK have different keyboard layouts... Subtle, but enough to be really bloody annoying if you are not ofay with keys without having to look :P

    Chances are you will get stitched on Duty!
