Thread: 12" iBook plus tax
04-11-2004, 03:45 PM #1JRJ26Guest12" iBook plus tax
Well, I'm most likely going to get the 12" iBook next week. Does anyone know how much it'll cost plus tax at the Apple Retail Stores? Also, how is it performance wise? Is the 12" 933Mhz iBook substantially better? I'm also getting a desktop later on(i'm going to college this fall), most likely an iMac or 1.6Ghz G5, so do you think the 12" iBook is good enough? What have your experiences been with it? At the Apple Store, the 12" always would freeze, and would take a LONG time to come out of sleep.

What are you going to be doing with it? For internet, word processing, anything like that..you'll have absolutely no problems, and if you max out the ram, you can even do more. Look at the apple store for prices...I'm not sure how they handle tax.

I'll just be doing the basics as you said, dvds as well. I'm still leaning towards the 12" PowerBook, but it's the cost.

Also, don't forget that you should qualify for Apple's Educational pricing. I noticed that you're in NY (which is 8% sales tax if I recall), so your total for the 12" 800 iBook with Combo drive would be $999.00 x 1.08, or $1078.92.

Yes, sounds to me like you need to make new best friends with an iBook.

yeah,lol, i meant the 14". Yeah, I wish they had that. I might look into the 14", though I'll probably stick with the 12".

I personally like the compactness of the 12 Powerbook. It's a gem!

Love my 12" too! The CA tax killed the student discount.
