Did you ever find this out perchance?


I've just emailed a couple of importers to see what they say. I will let you know also.

Samsung don't sell Chromebooks or Laptops in NZ. The only way to get them is to parallel import them. That was the policy while I was there anyway and I left in Jan of this year.
