    Yes. The only restriction Apple has on sales is shipping must be to a US address.

    ok, this is confusing, i read that there's a 10% tax in chicago where she lives, aren't the applestore prices tax-included? or is there tax on top of that?

    Welcome to shopping in North America..... taxes are additional to the advertised price (unless the state has no sales taxes).
