    nope, you have to be a US customer to purchase from the US apple site.

    when they ask for your billing address, they give you US as the only acceptable country

    They'll probably do a credit check on you, so if that's a god, then you should be able to. Why not call them and ask?

    I can answer this, if you put it on the credit card and have the limit to allow it then yes, however you will pay the full interest to amex, which could be as high as 12% or 18% depending, generally if you are in college and this is a big expense please budget before buying such an important piece of equipment, i know a lot of people in financial trouble from college, and it can follow you a long time if you plan on stating the states after graduating.

    Just my opinion, if you are tight on cashflow, look for something cheaper...
