Cheers Digsy

While you're here, how much was shipping for the IPOD to the UK or does it come from here? Or was £349 all inc? I looked but couldn't find anything

buy it off the uk apple website (www.apple.com/uk)
its £249 - unfair considering the exchange rate makes it only £190 in the US but you cant buy it there because they'll ONLY ship to the states. so we have to buy here and pay more

but thats all inclusive of postage and everything so that it

Thanks. I must confess I searched apple. com and then only to the extent of discovering that apple. co.uk is not owned by Apple!

Oh well, maybe I'll be able to place an order when I get a job

I can't believe I'm about to buy the IPod solely because of U2 facsimile on the back. That and a promise of 400 songs $100 later.
Let me understand something, can I actually get it cheaper (in the US, by buying it in the UK?

Btw, thanks for taking care of the fancy, fiery drinks.

---> Nevermind, found a currency converter and realized that you pay over a $100 more to get it for the UK. Sheesh, if it's Euro compatible, I could do swift business in the US for maybe $50 per unit profit. I feel guilty for getting it cheaper

I have just spent a similar amount of money getting my poor car through it's MOT! If I didn't need it for interviews and the like then I would get rid of it

I have loads of vids and DVDs I could sell but I can't bring myself to part with any

no no
quite the opposite

its far cheaper in the states than it is here - by current exchange rates we pay the equivalent of $460 for the very same thing that you guys pay $360 for! its unfair and one fo the reasons i havent bought an iPod yet. i was waiting till someone i knew went to america so they could get one for me cause it sooo much cheaper there.

put this way, when i last checked a 40GB iPod cost $399 on the american apple site, but cost £399 on the apple uk site. so its the same numerical value but the cost is almost double because of the exchange rate. it would actually be cheaper for me to fly to america and buy one and fly back then it would be to buy one here!

i considered trying to buy the U2 one off apple america and someohow get it here but its risky with customs officials - you can get fined - and apple.com specifially says you MAY NOT export them. so i figured it wasnt worth the risk
