So let me get this straight. I can get an iPod Mini now for $249 + $35 +$30 +$20 (8% of $249) = $334, or I can wait until April and get it for $249. Or I can get a 15GB iPod right now for $299. Geez. What a difficult decision.

I certainly suggest it. It saved me in total about 70 pounds even with delivery ......dont let the threats of import duty get to you….its highly unlikely in any case

One important thing which should be noted is WARRANTY! If you buy a product from the US and you are in say…Australia…the warranty for that product is not valid anywhere but the US. If something goes wrong, then you are basically screwed.
You’re better off waiting. The wait should be worth it for the warranty alone. I would feel a lot better after paying a lot of money knowing that if something was wrong with it it could be fixed without any major problems.

My Mini Ipod keeps freezing, and I have to wait until the battery runs out to do it again. As i bought in the States but I live in the UK I partly screwed, any ideas?

I’d call Apple and ask. The only way around it could be to buy the Apple Care Protection Plan for iPod. Again, you would be better off talking to the warranty dept. at Apple. They might be able to work something out. Failing that, I guess the only other thing you could do is send it back to the US.
