customs duty experiences / database

  • hi all,

    i'm just gearing up to buy a 256 and have been trying to calculate the total cost of shipping to Australia, versus shipping to Canada and picking it up in late september.

    currently my calculations have AUS at around 1750 after 5% customs, $120 shipping, and 10% GST.

    as for canada i'd be shipping to my uncle but have no idea how the system works. at least it would be ~$80 less shipping..

    so what i am really calling for is to start a thread that people could look at to see what they should roughly expect to pay in customs fees for the different devices. perhaps we can make a wiki page if enough people respond...
