Ok, here goes: I am a Belgian Student, and within 2 weeks I'm going on a Study Trip to Seattle. I will have time to visit the Apple Store in the University Village, so I have decided to buy a Macbook Pro The price on the Apple Website is 1999$, but here in Europe, the taxes, which is called VAT in the US, is included in most displayed prices. From what I have understood, in the US, VAT is mostly not calculated 'within' the displayed 'shop-prices', but will be calculated when you eventually pay your notebook. So, if I buy Macbook, the basic 1999$ dollar model, will the price that i will have to pay in the Apple Store at the University Village be 1999$? Or will it be 2138.93$ (1999$ + 7% VAT, I think I've heard that the VAT percentage in Seattle, WA is 7%). Could somebody please help me out?? Thanks for your time, Bert!
