    NY Tax is Manhattan is 8.375%

    $1999 * 1.08375 = $2166.42

    (I don't know how EDU discount works for international student visiting from out of the country.)

    God I hate sales tax. I avoid when buying stuff like this. But yeah like you said around $2167.

    Are you Canadian?

    If so, you might be able to get the US tax back as a rebate.

    You'd have to pay GST at the border on that part of the value that is over your personal traveller's tax exemption. I don't know whether you'd have to pay PST.

    If you are not Canadian, but are staying in Canada... I don't know.
