    I want to get a 2.4 Macbook, but it seems like all of the stores offering sales are charging NYers sales tax. Does anyone know of a website selling the Macbook for under $1500 with free shipping and no sales tax for us NYers?

    Amazon charges sales tax to NY residents.

    MacMall, I believe, does not.

    Does it make sense to drive to one of the states that border NY to buy one?

    They all have sales tax except New Hampshire, which does not border NY.

    How about Delaware? I thought they do not charge tax... I think DE is closer than NH

    Maybe, but Amtrak to Wilmington is going to cost approx. $100. Are you really going to save that much in sales tax? Even if you have (or have access to) a car, with tolls & gas & lunch & time used to travel, is it really worth it?
