How to get a fully loaded new Macbook Pro for less than the Apple web site

Apple advertises its fully loaded Macbook Pro 15":

  • 2.53GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
  • 4GB 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM
  • 320GB Serial ATA @ 5400
  • SuperDrive 8x

At $2,499. I got mine for $2,225 and no shipping or cutstoms duties.

How did I pull this off ? Well I was in London Heathrow Airport and bought it off the duty free. It cost me in British Pounds 1,488.47

Converting to dollars, I got a $274 saving. I did my own shipping by carrying it in my hand all the way to Kuwait.

In these hard economic times, every dollar saved, counts.
