Custom Fees for International shipping (U.S)

Hi friends,

I am considering getting a laptop overseas from the u.s however am curious on how much would be added to a laptop purchase valued at $2300usd

Would your guarantee be valid in Switzerland? - some guarantees are not.The hassle of sorting out a problem if you have purchased overseas could outweight any savings made.
Personally I find the costs of computers cheaper in CH( only difference is the keyboard I believe).

You can get a US keyboard, I know this because my swiss husband has a US-keyboard... I use the Swiss one.
