    Im thinking of finally taking the plunge and replacing my Powerbook for a MacBook pro. And I was thinking about getting it through the apple financing company so I pay a set amount each month instead of paying the full price streight away, I was just wondering if anyone else has done this and how was their experience with it?

    Thanks!

    i would advise not to. you will end up paying so much more than if you paid in full.

    if you want to use credit, i would suggest a credit card you have as it probably has better rates or better yet, get one that has like 12 months of no interest and try to pay the comp off in that time span.

    Like You I have a PB and I got that via the financing, didnt mind paying a bit extra - was a student and couldnt afford to buy one outright - I had no problems with the finance through MBNA but its with clydesdale now so I cant really say.
