Buying new Powerbooks from Amazon

    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...

    Another question

    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.

    Sales Tax should be figured from the Ship To address and not the Bill To address. The info should be on the Apple Store site.
