Whenever the new Mac mini arrives, I'll ask a friend to buy one for me in the US. If I would buy today, I would buy the base i7. The price difference in $US is 700 vs 1090 when comparing apple.com vs apple.se (Sweden). I bought an iPad mini in New York, NY and I remember I had to pay some taxes, maybe like 10% or something. Still a lot cheaper than buying in Sweden. Is it always 10%, or are the taxes lower/higher in other states?
