BH Photo: Macbook Air: $1,399 - $30 (money you would receive from selling Parallels on eBay) = $1,369. Apple Store: Macbook Air: $1,349 + $75 (sales tax for my area) - $80 (money you would receive from selling $100 app store gift card on eBay) = $1,344. Obviously, this might be different if you have a higher sales tax than I. And if you want Parallels, you should probably choose the BH. But these are my numbers, and I hope they save everyone here a little money and time! This is especially helpful if you just want to walk into a brick and mortar Apple Store to get your laptop ASAP!
