Hi people,

Erm, Just wondering how do you pay for your macbook pro?
By cash (full payment), by credit card or by cash (installments).

I'm currently in melbourne, and wanna buy a Macbook Pro soon, but
I dont wanna spend all my $2699 in one hit!
Does anyone know is there any reseller that allow installments?

Cheers!

Installments, probably not. Infact very unlikely. Your asking the reseller to give you credit so to speak. You'd be better off getting the item on interest free or similar. ie. Get credit from someone else who then pays the reseller in full.

Cash or credit card.

You could ask JB Hi Fi about laybuy but don't hold your breath.

It never belongs to you until you pay it in full, regardless of the way you pay your installments.

You could point them to the Apple online store (http://store.apple.com/133-622/WebObjects/australiastore.woa/wa/RSLID?nnmm=browse&mco=7B72367C&node=home/shop_mac/family/macbook_pro) (where it's $2699)? Possibly there was a misunderstanding as I can't imagine a regular reseller pricing themselves out of the market.
