I am looking at possible buying from Amazon, in order to save on tax...

A couple things I can't figure out however...

Why are the weights different? Amazon says 10.3 pounds for the 15" PB, however Apple's site says 5.7 pounds. Maybe they're counting the box w/ all accessories too?

Is it possible to build-to-order on Amazon's site?

Why do they show the 17" as a pre-order? It's available elsewhere...

Is Apple.com's sales tax calculated from your bill-to address, or the ship-to address? Cause I have family in MT I want to ship it to and Montana has no sales tax!

I would say that the shipping weight for the PB is 10.3 pounds, while the actual PB is only 5.7 pounds.
