Question: My work is donating four older laptops, all, come with windows XP and office and nothing else. Will I be able to give them to friends that I have made in Cuba during my holidays last year? Two of them are medical students, one is a music teacher and one is the little sister of one of the medical students.
Answer: You can only legally take in one laptop and accessories as a tourist. The others could be held by customs until a cumbersome paperwork process takes place. I suggest the recipients investigate on their end what they would need to do to get a used laptop donated to them. Then decide if it is worth doing. Another, probably easier way, would be to find people traveling to Cuba without a laptop that might be willing to take one of yours.
