What is the best place to buy a MBA without paying sales tax other than Amazon? If I buy a refurbished MBA from the Apple store and pay sales tax on it, it will come out to be almost much as a new one from Amazon with no sales tax which makes me want to buy it from Amazon. Are there any other online websites that you can you can buy from which does not charge the sales tax? Does California have any 'sales tax holidays' during the year? I know Texas has a couple of days during the year when no stores charge tax. Thanks.
