    Alright, i have been trying to buy a macbook all day now but the site is not working for me. Well not really all day, I tried 4 times or so, you know what I mean. Anyway. I do not have an account, so when i fill my virtual shopping cart and try to check out, it asks me to create a new account. After entering my e-mail adress, the site stops working. I have tried different browsers/computers/operating systems. I tried to attach a screenshot to show what I mean, I hope it works. Does anyone know why this happens? Do I have to use a school mail adress or what? Because that would be impractical... Ideas?

    Clear cache, clear cookies, disable extensions. Get back to us if none of those work.

    Which browsers? I just tried it and it works fine for me.

    Try e.g. Safari or Chrome. Might be a bug in FireFox or something.

    I went through the whole process again on my painfully slow ibook using safari and opera. The result is the same. It does not work. I will try again next week or so. Damn technology, never working like it should. Sometimes i feel like throwing out all this electronic trash and grow myself some vegetables...

    Hey, try this:

    1. Clear your cache and cookies.
    2. Go to Apple ID.
    3. Make a new Apple ID if you do not already have one. If you do, sign in.
    4. Then go to the Apple Store.
    5. Make sure you're already signed in.
    6. Try purchasing one now that you're already signed in.

    Hope this helps.

    Use Safari when browsing the apple store. I've noticed Firefox and Chrome will 'time-out' on purchases and/or fail to respond to clicks occassionally.
