Long story short my girlfriends parents saw my setup and iMac and now they want one. They want me to do the footwork for them which I don't mind, and I'm curious as to where you guys think the best place to buy it is? I know Apple.com but what's the deal with macmall? I've never used the site, is it tax free? If so that savings of ~150 might push me to use them, do they charge shipping? I was going to go refurb for them but apple didn't have any and plus, they upgrade like every 6+ years so I figure eff it, might as well get them the top of the line currently. (not really, looking at the 1699 27" model, they don't need the 2k version).
