Some states in the US are having a "sales tax holiday" this weekend, in which various kinds of school supplies, including computers, software, etc. are exempt from sales tax. For example: http://www.apple.com/retail/taxholiday/southcarolina.html I know that if were to buy something at an Apple retail store, I'd get the exemption, but the nearest one is about a two hours' drive away. If I order from the Apple Store online, do I get the exemption? A section near the bottom of the page seems to indicate "yes": but I'd like to make sure before I click the checkout button on my cart. If can't get the exemption, then I'd rather wait a bit before ordering. But if I can save a few hundred dollars by ordering now (actually by tomorrow morning because I'm going out of town then), I'll go ahead and do it. If you're in a state that has a similar tax holiday and it's worked for you at the online Apple Store, raise your hand!
