    J&R's is a good electronics shop. heres there site - jr.com/tem…tem

    also got to check out the apple store. its simple awesome

    Time square is a rip off area for toursits go up 5th avenue from about 45th street loads of places on there.

    Apple store is between 58th & 59th on 5th from memory, its open 24 hours and worth a visit even if you are not buying.

    Beware that sales tax is added onto the prices in New York State so buy carefully,and if you get a laptop I would take it out of the box,just in case customs ask you a question or two

    I thought as much. What sort of products am i really going to see a difference in price compared to the UK

    clothes and high end electricals

    MACY'S!!!!
    Best shop in the world lol...9 floors of madness.
    Tip tho. If your a geezer going with your other half....leave her at the hotel when you go, or you'll be broke!
    Also toys r us is great fun lol...full size ferris inside and a large gaming room on the bottom floor...hours can be lost just needless looking around lol...o and the willy wonka sweets/chocolate section is good!

    i'm going soon as well...

    i heard sales tax only applies over a certain threshold? can anyone confirm?

    Well for a start, the new slimline apple laptop has been releases in the states £200 cheaper than here! I'm sure you'll find a bargain or two

    Looking for Duncan yoyos in nyc ,anyone know any good deals / where to buy them?

    Probably everything in the states is cheaper then UK lol. As someone said before though be careful with customs. Id just take it out of the box and put it in your suitcase or something. The dollar exchange rate at the moment makes it a great time to be going. May go in the summer
