Yes, but you will incur shipping charges and may also have duty and VAT to pay.

As far as I know it is going to be more expensive to buy it in the UK,Than anywhere else,Going with the Exchange rate it should be far cheaper buying it from U.S.A than buying it here,Like everything else it pays to shop around.

I should have added if they are going to let you download it from the Internet,There should be no shipping or duty to pay on it.

Microsoft and importing from the USA can be a funny thing and possibly have hidden disadvantages. Cheapness via USA import may seem the bye word now,but you can bet your bottom dollar that Microsoft have this covered in their dealership arrangements.

Possibly best to wait, and see what happens when the UK market settles, and the product becomes more readily available.

ok, but on the marketplace there shouldnt be any limitations should there?

  spuds 14:15 18 Jan 2007

limitations depend on Microsoft, the owner of the product.

the majority of people are getting friends visiting the states to bring back copies, making the best of the poor dollar against the pound and avoiding rip off british prices.
