hi! can you direct me to some online stores that accepts credit cards from outside usa and canada? im actually in the middle east -- that's where my credit card was issued -- but the price of apples here cost like all the chips are lined with gold! and i'm also planning on shipping one to my mom who is in the states. i almost got hooked by www.macmacsales.com with the $799 ibook offer, luckily i found this site saying they were bogus. argh. i couldn't afford to lose that much money. i've been surfing for an ibook for two weeks now... then i hear about the upcoming intel chips... but if they're coming later, say august (you reckon?), i guess im buying for myself now. my mom, wont care what's inside her apple, she's just gonna use it for emailing and such. would really appreciate your inputs!
