This is the tax free weekend in NC. I bought a base level 15" MBP, HP printer, 16GB Touch, Airport Express, and Mighty Mouse from the Apple store (personal shopping appointment = very dirty looks from those lined up in the 98 degree heat outside!) for just under $2500, of which I'll get $300 back in rebates. All up, I saved about $140 in tax. Now I'm weighing that up against a return and wait for the renewed one. I know, I know, buyitifyouneedittherearealwaysrevisionsetc, but I feel pretty stupid getting it this close to a changeover, especially since it sounds like this might be a pretty big one. And then, I think, I am starting grad school classes on the 18th of August, I'd really like to be set up properly by then. So what do you guys reckon? If you could save that much on sales tax, would you trade that off against the imminent update? I *could* wait it out a week before opening (I'm moving into a new place on Wednesday), or even two, but I should run it for a few days to check for DOA faults, right? And rev A is likely to have a few kinks to fix? Aaargh!
