    Hello, I have a quick question, I will be purchasing a Maxed out 15 inch Retina MacBook Pro (2.7GHz, 16GB RAM, 768GB SSD), since tax free weekend in NC is coming up, I have decided to wait until then, but something just occurred to me, it only meets the $3500 ($3454) limit when I put in the Education discount (I am eligible for this by the way) otherwise, it costs $3750, does the tax free apply to the computer after the EDU discount, or before.

    It should apply to the final price which would be after the education discount.

    It will still be tax free up to $3500 so even if you paid tax, it would be very little.
    I am very interested in the new rMBP but also need to wait. That's almost $300 savings, on top of $200 savings from edu discount, and $100 edu gift card. That's a lot.

    Yes, and its been a good money saver for me for the back to school shopping, I actually used tax free weekend 3 years ago to get my current 2009 MBP, so can't wait to use it again for my new rMBP, $250 saved

    In CA at least, they charge you for the $100 Edu promo card in your purchase then refund that amount to your credit card which may put you over.
