So apparently there's a way to get this lenovo notebook for around 1500NZD it is a great gaming laptop for the price,
i7-4700QM/GT750M SLI(yes SLI)/15" screen/8gb Ram/1TB HDD(Y510p) 

So if you get this from amazon its 1000USD w/ free ground shipping



you ship it to the youshopNZ the post office's YOUSHOP service 

based on the box/weight dimensions calculation
its around 80NZD for shipping


import to NZ, 
pay the duty,
have a decent laptop which plays bf4 @ ultra 40fps+

So here's the breakdown of the price in NZD of course:
LENOVO y510p = 1,194.22
Duty = 208.74
shipping = 80


Can you guys give me your thoughts on this? Can you get a similar spec laptop anywhere with that price? Just throwing this out there for anyone who is currently considering buying a new laptop.
