International Order? We stock US/Canadian, [censored] ("UK" style plug type G), [censored] ("Europlug"), Japan, New Zealand, and Australian AC adapters/plugs. For other countries please inquire. Shipping to most international destinations takes 3-5 business days. Taxes/duties not included.

All laptops and desktops are assembled at our US facility. This means taxes are not included in the prices shown. The taxes depend on the final destination of the goods rather than where the order was assembled. Orders going outside the US will therefore have any local taxes collected on delivery.
