If your state offers a tax holiday this summer, you can buy select Apple products without paying sales tax.* When shopping online, sales tax will appear during checkout, but you’ll see the correct tax amount on your email order confirmation. Check your state’s tax holiday. Different states have different tax holiday periods. Make sure you’re shopping on the right days, and learn which products are eligible.

I found the deals at Adorama with free AppleCare to be very good. http://prices.appleinsider.com/#applecare Happy Mac shopping!!!!!!
