When does B&H start to charge tax? I bought sth from them last time, and there is no tax given I am living in Texas.

I got this from Google deal for $2345 last year. I can tell you that this is one of the best Macs I've ever owned and my Mac laptop usage started with PowerBook 165c.
Don't believe those who says 16Gb RAM is not enough - it's plenty for 95% of people, the other 5% who really need more will get their employers pay for it anyway.

...you effectively "limit" each core to 2GB at most, thus each core can potentially "run out" of memory and throttle down....
This is not how system RAM works...but i understand you are just explaining for someone else.
The key is to watch how much RAM you allocated directly to Photoshop, etc. in their settings. 16GB should be plenty unless you are virtualizing on this device. I built my rig back in 2014 when 8GB was "required" and put in 16GB. Unless I'm running VMs I never get close to full utilization.

I edit 4K with a 16gb no prob (strong eGPU) but if I was to buy today would prefer a 32gb for future proofing for video editing (8k etc) primarily, if it's for regular work 16 is enough

you're absolutely correct and i was very much over simplifying explanation.

just in case this is useful, here's someone that did benchmark i7 32GB vs i9 16GB (older MBP). basically he found in a scenario when compiling code that the RAM potentially impacts i9 performance vs. i7. but generally it appears i9 will outperform i7 in most scenarios as you stated.

...not trying to start any debates (16GB good for my usage), just sharing info for others that want to research what's best for THEIR use cases since there's no one size fits all answer...definitely depends on your particular needs.

That's my concern too. Was interested in it until it went to store and looked at it. I'm upgrading they update their 13.3/14 MBP with the new keyboard as well and then I will bite.

Last year, the Supreme Court ruled that out-of-state retailers must collect sales tax on online sales. As a result, on January 3rd, on-line retailers like B&H, Adorama, NewEgg, etc...will start collecting tax on shipments to most states including Texas, as required by state law.

...it was nice while it lasted but i believe all legit on-line retailer are now charging sales tax per the ruling.


B&H will credit sales tax if you purchase using their payboo credit card. not ideal but its an option available.

Nvm, I just read. Please ignore my question about sales tax. Sorry about that.

Anybody knows anything about Adorama / BH started charging tax to Texas? I tried to order something last night but they added tax. Maybe started on Jan 1st

Like the other guy said. Supreme Court intervened and made it *necessary* to collect out of state sales tax. Perhaps that was the biggest issue in this country vomitvomitvomit
