    Correct!

    Some people must think when Companies import into the UK they just put on the shipping note Granny Jobs sending a "Gift" of 15 containers of iPads to my son Steve Jobs in the UK.. Cuustoms value $18.

    It's slightly more different for companies to import into the UK even on a small scale.

    You have things like:

    Administration Fee's
    Comodity TAX (P.S this can be more than VAT on some item comodity codes)
    VAT 17.5% ( oh and the VAT is charged inclusive of shipping+products value, if you do not have the shipping cost on the invoice at time of import C&E will estimate using current UK prices for shipping these goods and charge accordingly no appeal).

    So really some people need to realise things are more expensive in the UK for a reason... That reason is businesses are R-PED on importing goods.

    So the Price is fair taking this into consideration if you have to buy in the UK. I my self will be buying abroad through family members, purely because the importing is cheaper for me not because APPLE are making a Billion% extra profit on ipads in the UK... They will be making the same, if not less just to have the price adjusted fairer in countries with crap importation regulations
