    Default [FEELER] Importing MacBook Pro

    City/Town: All
    Hello good people.

    I am looking into importing a MacBook Pro for myself, and making 'bulk' orders should bring down shipping costs etc. Prices are significantly better in the US, especially for slightly older models (think end-2016, for e.g.).

    Anyway, if anybody's interested, drop me a PM or comment here. Since we would order beforehand, you can really pick whatever model you'd like, 13/15 Touch-Bar/None etc.

    I suppose this can apply to other electronics too, but I'm less comfortable i.t.o reliability and warranty, so I'm much more inclined to the Apple side of things.

    Just remember the price stated in the US is excluding tax.

    Once you factor that in and after shipping costs and duties it's often not really worth the effort any more.

    Although in the case of older models you might just win out a little bit.

    I've done it before with great success i.t.o pricing, but yeah I'm taking everything into account. Older models are sometimes discounted $1k, it's fantastic.
