Despite the lack of warranty I am still looking to buy one from the US. I've been without a laptop and a drawing device for well over a year now and I'm eager to get back into the hobbies I have put on hold since 2014. Assuming I can get someone to give the device a vigorous inspection before it is shipped over, what should I be asking that person to test for? I've started to do a list but I am bound to miss something! Any updates on this? Was the import tax sorted out prior to the shipping or are you having to pay for it now that it has been stopped by customs?
