    Hi All,

    I've spent the last few minutes configuring my new macbook and i've heard some of the folks on the forum say that Amazon offer a tax free purchase. Is this true? :confused:

    Config
    15-inch MacBook Pro
    2.2GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7
    4GB 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2x2GB
    500GB Serial ATA Drive @ 7200 rpm
    SuperDrive 8x (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)
    MacBook Pro 15-inch Hi-Res Antiglare Widescreen Display
    Backlit Keyboard (British) & User's Guide (English)
    Accessory Kit

    Would amazon offer anti-glare and a faster RPM hard drive?

    Thanks in advance
    Cully

    Price without VAT : £1,640.83

    I've aways paid VAT with Amazon.

    And no, they don't stock BTO models. So no AG or faster HDs.

    The only decent discount is Education, although some employers (NHS, MoD etc) may have slight employee discounts.
