Tablets & taxes

This one’s not really anything to do with biking at all :S

I’m looking to pick up a tablet for work, and unsurprisingly it turns out they’re cheaper in North America than Britain.  What I hadn’t considered though is that it would matter which state I bought them in — my uncle Chris mentioned this, and I looked up the state-by-state sales taxes (thanks wikipedia) and found out that whilst Washington and California are around 8%, Oregon, is 0% state tax (some local municipality taxes).  Win.  That saves me around $25 on a $300 purchase, which is enough to pay for a couple of nights camping. 🙂
