    same as whatever the sales tax is in the state you'll have the machine shipped to.

    apple has nation-wide presence. so regardless of where apple is located, you are charged the appropriate state sales tax. (even if there's no official "apple retail store" in your state.)

    to summarize:

    if you qualify for an edu. discount, order from apple if edu. discount + tax price is lower than un-discounted price.

    otherwise, order from a "reputable" company without nationwide presence. i ordered from j&r which is a NY company and i live in MI. it ended up $10 or so more expensive than apple's edu price but apple didn't have the machine in stock and j&r did, so i went with j&r.

    if you want BTO, you generally have to order from apple.
