That's for sure! Can't you buy one on Amazon or something and have someone mail it?

You want a totally stranger to buy a Macbook (for his own money), take it with him/her to Russia, meet you somewhere and then you will unconditionally pay for that Macbook? I see a few challenges here.
If you will buy the Macbook for your own money and get it delivered to a totally stranger, hope he/she will take it with him/her to Russia, meet you somewhere and the give it to you, then you are into something, but I smell risky business here. Don't get me wrong if you go for the last option and you can find a person that will do this for you then fine, I had done so for a few people because they had to have a certain keyboard on their Macbook, but it was people I knew before hand, not strangers.
It is a question of who should take the risk if something in the deal goes wrong, and much can go wrong if you or the other part are not very careful in all details.
If the Macbook is in it's original packing there is a risk that the customs will tax it as "a gift", who should pay this? If the Macbook is not in it's original packing and just thrown into a backpack and it gets scratches, who should compensate for that? Just to point two places where things can go wrong, it is no problem to find other things that can make the deal into a dispute with a bad ending. And then there is the fact that you are not allow to carry any stuff with you on the plane that is not your own property, this can create a lot of headache if things goes just a little wrong.

Hans.KK thanks for your reply. I agree that this offer is a bit risky. Is it really might be complicated to bring a small computer with you in original packing?
Iíve heard that people did that many times, like bying iphones...
As for the price, you can buy a certain Macbook in Amazon almost 30-50% cheaper then you can buy it here.
But once again I agree with you, that itís risky to ask a stranger.

Sure ��

In that case, a very well known RF state organisation will assist in its carriage, possibly via the diplomatic bag at no cost to the sender............ ;)
