    I am planning to get a 2199$(canadian) C2D MBP from canada. My friend lives there and is a student. Could someone please tell me how much it`d cost after the students discount and taxes. I guess he`s in montreal but I m not sure. But in any case the taxes wouldnt be more than 8%. Or are they?

    And also I`d assumed you`d get apple products cheapest in USA(thats why I got my MB from SF). But it seems that canada has it cheaper. 2199CAD = 1950 USD compared to 1999USD.

    Anyways, If someone can tell me how much is the discount for Macs in Canada, I`ll be very thankful.

    Well, you'd have to tag 6% GST (HST if you're a francophone) onto it plus whatever the PST/QST is in Quebec (I think it's 7.5% right now).

    So, $2199 x 1.135 = $2,495.87 CAD

    Which is $2,213.24 USD right now according to the Bank of Canada.

    Hope that helps.

    In Ontario, the base level C2D MBP is $1999 with an EDU discount and before sales taxes. I believe the sales tax in quebec is 7.5% on any purchases and 14% on any purchases in ontario.

    Beat me to it.

    It's 14% in Ontario now? I know I've been gone for 2 years, but wow.....I really need to go home. :eek:

    Why don't you just ask your friend how much tax they have in Vancouver...

    Also you might consider convincing your friend to get a developper student accout (100$CAN) and then buying your MPB from the "ADC store" which would give you a 20% rebate...much better than the EDU price.
