Mac users tend to forget that the Mac presence outside USA is meaningless.

Apple has retail stores in the UK, Canada, Japan, Italy, Australia, China, Switzerland, Germany, France, and Spain. In addition, they have online storefronts in 37 countries. I hardly think you assessment that the Mac presence outside the USA is meaningless is accurate.

Not even resellers? We don't have any Apple Stores here in Hungary either, but there are quite a few authorized Apple resellers selling all kinds of stuff.

Where did you get your Mac from anyway?

Get on the EuroRail and visit the other European stores:

Germany has 5. Switzerland has 3. France has 7. Spain has 2. UK has 29 stores.

That makes 46 stores in Europe with many more to come.

Or you can contact your local rep:

Ask them about all your concerns.

Over here in The Netherlands we have a number of Apple premium resellers. Their shops even mimic Apple stores.

Also a number of bigger stores have Apple sections, including Apple shirt wearing dedicated sales people/Apple experts.

And if you're lazy you can order stuff on-line and they'll bring it to your home.

That's because the Swedes are smart - I mean, they do make Volvos...

I have a friend in Sweden.

Over there he has bought an iPhone 3G, iPhone 4, iPad, iPad 2 and a MacBook Air. At home he has 100 Mb/s fiber Internet connectivity.

He lives in a village in the middle of the country, not in the south where the bigger cities are.

The Apple stores in Sweden are sold by Ikea, you have to build them by yourself.

Ok, I go out.

Nah, that cannot be. What IKEA sells is usually relatively cheap, and that is fundamentally incompatible with everything Apple.

Please keep the door open for me when you leave.
