I've been going back and forth trying to decide on which MacBook is for me, if I should wait out for a Pro, etc. I have $1000, and am getting offers around $400 for my laptop. If sold, that would even out at around $1400, which poses a problem because even after student discount I'll have to pay over $1500 to Apple with taxes added in. I was browsing Amazon, and saw they carried the latest models. One thing is that they don't offer a student discount, so it'd be the regular $1499. They do, however, offer a mail-in rebate. So after the rebate, it would be $1400 on the dot. I was sure they added taxes, but for curiosity I added it into the cart. The only surcharge they mentioned was shipping, but they didn't add tax. So my question - does Amazon add tax, or am I just being naive?
