    Apple.com, apple retail store, best buy, microcenter...You can look around but if you are trying to get a new MBP I don't think you will find too much of a difference in price.

    Amazon still has sales tax, they just don't automatically charge it.

    But in general it depends on what you are looking for.

    B&H Photo Video also sells MBPs and if you lived outside of New York State, there wouldn't be any tax. I think they also ship MBPs for free.

    oh ya, good call. I am just looking for a new MBP for school. I can get the Edu discount and a free itouch I guess. It seems to be the best price I can find... ;)

    DOnt get all excited about free ipods, they just want to get rid of them to make room for newer versions.

    Look at the refurbished computers, they are exactly the same as far as warranty. The only difference is that they come in a brown box. Refurbisheds save u $$$$

    Look: Refurbished Mac's

    All the same, if a person wants or needs an iPod and would be quite pleased with the current version, it's a good deal ;)
