Tax Free Puchases and Op Telic

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I'm thinking about buying a computer tax free when I deploy on Telic shortly. The last I heard on postage was that there's a 2 kilo limit to each package. Laptops are about twice that. Can anyone suggest how to proceed? (UK tax paid is cheaper than EFI).
  2. If your anywhere near an american PX, see if you can get one there or if they can order you one. I bought my laptop from a PX, about 350 quid cheaper than the UK price. The px where i was in the sand pit used to have quite a bit of electrical stuff in it. Make sure the power supply is dual voltage tho.

    Personally i wouldnt buy a lappy mail order, it would worry me how it was treated in the post.
