polglase:It looks to me that TigerDirect and Gamestop both ship to NZ... is that not the case? 


Doesn't appear that TigerDirect offer international shipping online: http://www.tigerdirect.com/sectors/help/international.asp

I have found gamestop does: http://www.gamestop.com/gs/help/Delivery.aspx
$29.99 usd for NZ shipping: http://www.gamestop.com/gs/help/internationalrates.html

EDIT: The gamestop page for the Prime states "Ships to U.S. Addresses only": http://www.gamestop.com/tablets/asus-transformer-prime-32gb-tablet-bundle/98405
:(


I went through the order process on both sites with an NZ address and got quoted ~US$80 for shipping.

The Bundle you linked to shows US only, but the tablet on its own lets you select NZ for shipping:

I may wait until the 3G version is released, despite ASUS not having announced a 3G version yet:(

I have with TigerDirect.com however they won't accept overseas credit cards for payment. I am reluctant to wire transfer money to a reseller overseas I have never used before so I may not proceed with the order.

B&H Photo/Video will ship to NZ, I believe, and they have it for pre-order. I'm thinking of getting a friend to bring me one back in Jan.

Not too concerned about 3G; I can use my phone as a wireless access point.

Thanks for the tip, I thought I had checked B&H... anyway have placed the order, will report back when it ships.

I ordered with B&H yesterday, pity they charge your CC straight away, for international customers.

Did you go for the gray or champagne colour?

Haven't ordered just yet, but probably the grey colour. Looks less like a Mac, that way!

B&H are going to charge me US$10 for shipping to a US address, which is a bit of a pity. Would order from Amazon, but their pre-order page is gone, wonder if they are "out" of pre-order stock?

Honestly never heard of them, take it they are reputable?

Yeah, I imagine they're probably one of the bigger sellers of photography and video equipment online, and their prices are reasonable too.

Yes, very reputable and have read plenty of good reviews from overseas buyers.
