great for people... in new Zealand :D
But I wonder if the aussies here can get it, not sure if we here in the states can get it, might be too far.

Nope, the website states they're happy to ship to most foreign countries. You should also be able to get it minus the local sales tax (GST) which I think is about 12.5%

It could be a good buy for people in Britain. NZ$699 is only about 280 at the moment. Anything under about 350 is a really cheap laptop here.
