    i know this is stupid but i forgot to call and ask them myself today, but do the apple retail stores take cash or a personal/business check? or is it just credit cards?

    They only accept "Apple bucks". See me about converting your dollars. I'll give you a good rate.:p

    I believe they take cash (but maybe only up to a certain amount?), debit cards, credit cards and checks.

    There is no limit on cash. I once had a guy buy a 17" PB and other goodies and paid $3000 in $100s.

    I live in MA right on the RI border. I LOVE the new APPLE store. Highlight of Providence Place. In the market for a new MB/MBP. We should put a sort of apple meet of some sorts together. :)

    When i worked at an apple store 2 summers ago i sold a powerbook + app + ipod to a lady who paidf for it in cash. We double and triple counted just to make sure we had it all. SOmething about using that much cash is VERY sketchy, but as long as its all there and its the right currency we didn't care.

    I believe buisness must take currency. I have heard it is against the law not to, has anyone else heard this?

    There's certainly no federal law requiring businesses to take cash. I don't know if there are state laws that would govern this, but I tend to doubt it.

    In Italy it is now ILLEGAL to make a cash sale over the sum of €100.00.:eek:

    Money laundering laws.
