Good info. That might be a good choice since a new account might hurt my score, but at the same time I probably could use the available credit in the long run...
oh decisions decisions!
Ye I hear ya on that!
I've ordered two MacBook Pros (one an open box -- smokin' deal!) and a color laser printer this last year. Didn't really need them, but with the account hidden I just couldn't resist. Way high interest rate if you don't pay off the promo in time.

No matter where you wind up getting your financing, if you buy at Mac Mall you'll still save a ton of $. They have a brand-new, one model back section that's 25% off sticker on some items. I check it every day.
Here's the dircect link:
Also, note how they are low on stock... the next round of macs is due out in the next 4-8 weeks. I know you hate your tablet, but you might just want try to hold off for a few weeks so you LITERALLY aren't wasting money. (Any computer you buy today will be 10-30% cheaper in a month.
More proof to the rumor of the new macs:

ugh. I went ahead and applied for apple AMD got a denial. Called for a recon and they're closed!
Let them know your interested in the financing offer, they're going to ask questions about your report. Be prepared to answer for anything on your report.

You know apple sure makes some nice computers, but if buying the car is a priority need rather than want, why dont you spend 450 bucks on a dell from walmart. I know they are no apple, but heck, it would get you a computer for now, and the car buying should be easier and maybe have better rates without that higher utilization.
Just my opinion of coirse.
It *might* be possible that the OP's occupation depends on Macs like mine does. Xcode, the program that you write code for iphone apps in, wont run on a pc or anything else. Then again this is a very specific circumstance.

Good point. I was at best buy the other day and dang some of those apples make me drool. I just have such a hard time spending the money.
I never have that problem because I keep mine very close to new with invisible shields and such. When I go to sell them I usually get all but 100 back from my original purchase. Apple devs were given information on the iPad released today in advance. I decided itd be best to sell my iPad 2 nearly 1 month before since no one wants an iPad 2 when the 3rd is out. After 4 hours of battling Apple's site I finaly got my order placed through Amex's points mall.
