    I am in Palo Alto and I am ordering a macbook pro.
    I checked the apple tax holiday, and it said "North California Sales Tax Holiday August 7, 2009 to August 9, 2009". But I asked the apple people why the tax is still included before I place I place my order. You guess what did apple guys told me? "There's not tax holiday in weekend in North California", what's a lie!!!!

    Here are the proofs.

    Since when were Carolina and California the same thing?


    This is one of those moments I wish this forum let us use the "Quote" tag in our sigs....

    P.S, there is still never any tax at PowerMax, and for most there is no tax at Amazon or MacMall and other such places.

    Thank you guys. I am a little angry about apple's service, and I typed some wrong words. All the story are talking about my experences in California.

    So..... I see you edited your first post.

    Um....... maybe you should try clicking on your first so-called "proof". It still says "North Carolina".

    You are not helping yourself.

    Thanks for the entertainment and welcome to MR. :D

    There was no tax holiday in California. Oh, and "North California" is not a state.

    Yeah we know.

    The Tax Holiday was in North Carolina, not California. Unless you're in North Carolina you're not eligible.

    That's why we're laughing.

    The idea of California telling people not to pay taxes given the current situation is wrong on so many levels.

    That raised some chuckles.

    MacMall charges tax to CA residents, since their HQ is in Torrance CA.

    Best bet is PowerMax or Amazon for no tax upfront.

    The Governator can't afford to give anyone a tax holiday ;)

    Besides, when I first read the post, I was trying to figure out how California would offer a tax break to only 1/2 of the state.:eek:
