We have the possibility of getting a 40% discount
on any laptop we buy. We are planning to live in the States.
To do this, however, it must be in the name of my friend in
Australia and mailed back to Australia should it need
repairing, Do you think it would negate the 40%
discount to have to do this?

Hi again :whistling: Well, first, it depends how expensive the system is. Second, how heavy is it? Third, who is delivering? UPS? US Postal? They all charge different prices. How long is the warranty? If you're intending on buying an extended warranty, I would vote against it. Keep it local.

Check the shipping rates, most likely it would negate the savings IF you have to ship it back there. Most likely you won't need to do that and you might be able to get it repaired locally cheaper than the shipping.
