    Talking Going to Switch (Yippeeeee)
    Well this is my first post on a mac forum. In the coming weeks I will have many questions regarding the 12inch Ibook I will be getting. So here is my first question.

    I do not have an apple store where I live but we do have a CompUsa. They have a pretty good mac section at there store. Need to know if I can go there and order my ibook the way I want it or if I have to get one that is just the base config. Would rather go somewhere and pay cash rather then ordering off of apples website. But if I can't get it the way I want at compusa then I will go the website route... Anythoughts?

    Thanks in advance.

    The CompUSA I used to go to would be able to get your Mac the way you want it. I suggest at least 384 megs RAM.

    Cool. Would the wait be shorter going that route rather then the apple store site? And I know there isn't alot of config to do but stuff like air port, bluetooth etc. And yes more ram will be coming but not getting it from apple. Gonna do it myself.

    yea you should be able to get it that same day from compusa....airport and bluetooth are easy add-ins for them to do and your are wise for doing the ram yourself

    there is definitely sales tax on their website for purchases that are shipped

    "Please note that your subtotal does not include sales tax or rebates."

    they dont tell you the sales tax until after you have completed the order which sort of surprised me

    I just did a test transaction and i got all the way up to the point where it says enter your creditcard and there was still no tax added.....It even said Total, not subtotal....

    I paid taxes on all of my purchases from the on-line Apple store.

    It probably has to do with whether or not there's an Apple Store in your state.

    Cool
    There are four stores about 45 minutes from me, Pasadena - Pasadena, Los Angeles - The Grove, Glendale - Glendale Galleria and Costa Mesa - South Coast Plaza. I can get to these but they are a little farer out, Mission Viejo - Mission Viejo, Newport Beach - Fashion Island and Northridge - Northridge.
