    I have to say this is a awesome forum. I am on the forum all the time at work. I am thinking of getting my first mac(a blackbook) with the student discount and the free ipod. But the taxes here are killing(I live in Canada). Moreover I am going down to Atlanta, Georgia this weekend to visit my family. I was wondering if I could pick up the blackbook from a apple store over there and save on taxes. Does anyone know how much is the taxes in Georgia. Also would I be able to use the student discount over there(since I am registered in a Canadian university).

    Thanks guys.

    Another option for you might be to buy it on Amazon.com, where they have $75 and $100 MIRs, and no sales tax in most states.

    I'm not from Gerogia, but if you travel a little further to Florida, the sales tax here is only about 7%.

    Yeah, they won't give you the educational discount. I just graduated high school here in the states, but I'm going back up to Canada next year for university, and they said that they couldn't give me the discount. My friend, however, who's going to the same university as me, managed to get the discount, so it's worth a shot.
