    Yes you can, just contact customer service.

    Why do you have Prime when you live in Aus, its a waste of money since we cant access any of the perks that comes with Prime.

    The 480 or 960gb are far better value, especially since the 240gb is pretty slow (different flash chips)

    Still some folks might not need that much space and often the real world speed difference is barely noticeable.

    But I do agree that the 480 and 960 are better value and the way to go, they are all well priced for what you get. I'd go the larger units myself or if going smaller look at Intel or Samsung units maybe

    Streaming video works well, as does the borrowing of books on kindle. Best bit though is 2 day shipping to Shipito
