    I am trying to decide whether to buy a powerbook from apple.com, or from someone selling one used, and i need to know if apple charges sales tax on top of the prices they tell you on the site. thanks.

    They'll charge you tax when it ships.

    Bought it online through a friend in California, they added the 5% at the end of the transaction. Taxes based on the billing address I think.

    order from a small online apple reseller and you won't have to pay taxes.

    smalldog.com has a good rep as far as i know, though i have no personal experience ordering from them.
