Damn, also forgot to mention I applied at the bank for a small loan for it and didn't get approve because of no credit on that too. Damn, guess I am in a hole

pballin, I would recommend one of two things.

1) buy a cheaper non-mac computer. I LOVE my Mac, but I would never go into hock for one.

2) If you're want the computer for school, look into working part-time as an apple advisor. Why? because after working for the company for 90 days, they'll give you a $500 credit you can use towards the purchase of a Mac ON TOP of the 25% discount you normally get. http://www.apple.com/jobs/us/students.html

I went this route and got my MB Air for about the price of a netbook.

This option takes time, and more effort than a loan, but to be honest, you're not going to get a loan.

As a former Apple employee and share holder, I'm very grateful to hear you love your mac, but if you really think an 18 year old should put $1000 + computer purchase for a school computer... where everything (almost) is geared to pc... I pity you

I think I was 19 when I bought my Macbook Pro. Best purchase I've ever made, for school and outside of school. I've never once needed a PC because my Mac couldn't do something.

I would like a new one simply for solid state and 2 thunderbolts and HDMI, but my 2010 Macbook is still holding it's own.

That's an opinion that relates none to me because I did not work at the store. I worked as a Sr. Advisor... which is a fancy word for phone tech support.

They will be happy to schedule an appointment with a genius so you can be on time to wait a half hour for someone to help you.

Looks like Apple stock is gonna go up. Too bad it has nothing to do with innovation from Apple. Instead it's innovation from a investor.

tsk, tsk. You'll never get free apples from a Sr. Advisor like me with an attitude like that =P

For a hardware issue, sadly there is still no technology that allows a computer company to fix that over the phone. You might also be surprised that AppleCare has the highest customer satisfaction rating of any other computer company for the past 11 (12?) years according to Consumer Reports.

But, this thread's not about me. I stand by my first post. Don't go into debt at 18 over a computer. Either get a part-time job, preferably one for Apple where you can get your computer of your dreams for a good price, or just buy a PC til you can afford the perfect mac.

Feeling nostalgic, my company wants me to do some editing for them so they showed me their workstation. A PowerMac G5 running Tiger and FCP 5. *Sigh* I kinda miss "those days".

Save your pennies. You should use loans to start a business or buy a house/car. Buying a depreciating electronic device on credit is beyond retarded.
