Hi :) 

You will HAVE to buy it in the UK...

If you import one by buying from the US you will have to pay both VAT (20%) + Import duty + carriage... think around 30 t0 40% added on in total to the US price....

All the best Brett :)

Brett is fairly correct except there is no duty in the UK on computer products but customs can charge you VAT on what they think is the retail price no what you paid. That is why most China based companies say they mark all there packages as a gift for customs which will get it through without VAT most of the time due to the sheer volume they cannot check everything.
