    Hello everyone, My name is Rory
    A bit new here,

    I am been thinking about getting a mac for over a year. But when it was time unfournately the Apple Store was full and my aunt wasnt able to bring one for me.

    Now I have a Gateway MX6920, and I am pleased with it. It costed me $1000, but now I am feeling the Mac Vibe again.
    I cannot really BUY another laptop, so I was wondering it Apple had a trade in program or anything similar.

    It was my intention to come here and look for somone whom needed a PC for Work any reasons and try a trade for a PowerBook or something, but I need 98 posts for that :(

    Any ideas on how I can change my MX6920 into a PowerBook/ iBook or MacBook :)

    without eBay..

    maybe just stick around here for a while and let those 98 posts fly by... :p

    Apple don't do a trade-up think like you describe.

    The retail stores will let you bring in your surplus cash and trade it in for all sorts of lovely stuff.:)

    yeah and I'm pretty sure they'll exchange all kind of stuff for a "good look" at your credit card as well! ;)

    What do you think Apple is, a used car lot? ;) Sorry, selling the thing is the only way you're going to get a MacBook.

    Have you checked to see if Gateway has a trade-in (for cash) program?

    I know you said that you didn't want Ebay, but here's another option. Ebay has a PC trade-in program where you can get pretty decent prices. Problem is - last time I checked, there was a major limit to the brands / model numbers that you could trade in. Still worth a try, though.

    *looks for link* MAN! I can't find it. You'll have to hunt around for it yourself. Sorries. :D

    The trade-in program is known as "ebay" and "4% final value fee"
