  5. Hi all, I am due to be moving to Aus in the next couple of months and I was just wondering whether they will try to charge me duty on electronics of mine when I do. Things that I'll be taking with me on the plane such as SLR camera with lenses, laptop and possibly some sound equipment. Is there an import duty exemption for people moving to Aus or would I be liable to pay for things I bring in when I move there? Matt

    Laptop and mobile connections

    Hi there! I'm thinking about buying a small Dell notebook to take with me on my 1 year working holiday trip around Oz. I already have a large Dell laptop but this weighs too many kgs! I want it for the internet, skype and store photos with external hard drive. Does anyone know how I would connect to the internet and which ISP is best to use? Also, on the subject of technology, how can you call home without spending the earth on a mobile? Is it best to change your SIM card or buy a new mobile? Fi :confused:

    Laptop Help Needed

    Hi everyone Since arriving in Oz I have been plugging my laptop into the mains using a power adaptor. Anyway, my cable from the laptop is on it's way out and I need a new one. Does anyone know if I can just buy any Oz cable that will allow me to plug the laptop in or do I have to get some sort of UK specific cable - I didn't know if there was a voltage difference. I don't want to blow up my laptop! Hope that makes sense and hope someone can help! Thanks a lot HH x

    Laptop for sale

    Hi Everyone, Is anyone interested in buying a Toshiba Satellite Pro A120 laptop. It's in Excellent condition only been used briefly for a couple of months. My hubby started a new business up at the beginning of the year and we personnally bought 2 laptops for company use, however things went wrong between him and business partner and everything is getting shut down. That leaves us with an extra laoptop, we're taking ine to Oz with us, it's fab to talk and see family on Skype. The laptop is like new no scapes or missing pixels and also comes with all the manuals and Samsonite black carry case, plus still has 5 months warranty. If anyones interested let me know we paid £895 6 months ago, so please sensible offers. It's on Ebay at the mo only 1 day left. Suey

    Laptop Dilemma...

    We've just given away our trusty laptop to the aged in-laws, hoping they'll figure out how to email us once we settle in Ballarat. We've heard that laptops are a very good deal in Dubai. Is this true? The second question is what will Australian Customs charge us if they figure out we've owned the laptop for only 15 hours? Any experience / knowledge as usual gratefully received. Flying out of Manchester with Emirates this Saturday.......:goofy:

    Laptop tekkies

    I have almost decided to buy a laptop here before leaving for Oz in Feb. I will need one between handing in my works one and leaving for Oz. If I buy one here I can get the technician at school to put on lots of schooly stuff. Anyway I looked at dell who had been recommended by a few people but today I found a COMPAQ C350 for £550 (Intel Duo, 1024 MB RAM 120GB hard drive HD brightscreen, Microsoft Windows Media, 128MB graphics and so on). When I put together a Dell with the same specifications it was well over £800. Does anyone have any knowledge of this laptop or other recommendations? Thanks Rebecca
