Hi, I was looking at this laptop and found it slightly cheaper on ebay after import tax even

 

 

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Lenovo-Thinkpad-T460s-i5-6200U-12GB-DDR4-256GB-SSD-FHD-IPS-T450s-upgrade-/262346494445?hash=item3d1511d1ed

 

 

 

I was wondering if anyone knew any downsides to buying this over ebay?

 

 

 

thanks

Don't do it, no CGA protection.  Not worth it for expensive items if you are not saving a lot.

 As long as Lenovo offer international warranty, you should be good. sometimes shipping company refuse to ship the battery...it is possible.

that is the combination of administration fee for biosecurity check, and transaction fee and what not, total should be around $50.

Plus whatever fees the courier company decide to tack on for having to process this.
Thats happening overseas, couriers adding on there own, large, fees . 
They have your goods, want the goods,then you have to pay the couriers added fees . Just a matter of time before it gets
common here
