    Not in Canada either. It's a problem. I had to ask an American to buy one for me and ship it into the northern wastes.

    Luckily, eBay is a little more flush with units these days, and so international shipping is more negotiable than BestBuy's draconian border policy.

    I wonder if the rejection of NFTA is going to affect cross-border sales?

    The trade agreement uncertainties have already caused Canada to respond by cranking up import charges. These days ordering on Amazon is the best bet for the consumer since they're big enough and centralized enough to bully much more agreeable shipping and import terms from governments and trade organizations.

    Ebay is nearly always a more expensive proposition than Amazon at the moment for out of country sales. -Which sucks because it's the far more democratic of the two.

    BIG UPDATE, I was able to try a Microsoft Pro 2017 pen in store, and it definitely had close to zero jitter compared to the Bamboo INK pen, I might just end up with using the Surface for now until 8th gen or better Samsung(Or better yet, a wacom Surface clone) comes along. Atleast it'll resell well in a year or two, I got the SP2017+alcantara bundle for 800 euro, it has i5, 8gb ram and 128 storage. Just got the pen and nibs kit for 110 euro, so 910 euro total.

    I don't want to risk importing a Samsung device, and it's close to 1100 euro, while the active fan concerns me regarding it's longevity.

    Is the Asus VivoTab Note 8 for 80 euro worth it? It seems in almost perfect condition, and even comes with keyboard and mouse, and Windows 10
    I also do have a Wacom Feel pen left over from my Note 10.1

    Only if you'd love opening it up to replace the ribbon cable that makes the pen and/or touch working.

    please elaborate?
    I'm pretty okay with opening my tech though, is there any issue I should expect with it?

    Wait.
    Maybe you're talking about the Vivotab WITHOUT pen?
    In that case I don't know if it's the same case.
