    I'm looking to buy a new MBP this summer after I graduate. I am currently in the midst of planning a grad party and I was wondering if anyone knew if I could open something like an Apple store registry so that all my gifts go in towards the MBP purchase.

    My alternative is to request the guests to buy Apple gift cards and then going to my local Apple store but I would like to buy the laptop online. So will apple be able to combine multiple gift cards into one big gift card worth a few hundred or even a few thousand dollars?

    Thanks...any info is greatly appreciated

    I know apple will accept up to 4 Gift Cards on their online store.

    Hope that helps

    You'd be better off asking for cash and telling people what you are looking to get. As the poster above said, you can only use 4 cards when buying online. You will only be able to use more than 4 cards at an Apple Store and then can only buy a stock configuration.

    Am I the only one who thinks that asking people to buy you something is incredibly rude?

    See, I didn't exactly ask my relatives to give me a computer for my grad party.

    I got some of the money from the grad party and put it towards a Mac Pro.

    I think it's the smarter way to go about doing it in my opinion.

    Also, I think you'll be able to use an education discount if its for college I assume (might be totally wrong).

    yes, but you can go to a store and ask to buy one giftcard and use the four as payment-- so, if you get 4 $100 cards, ask to buy a $400 one

    Ya, I figured this is what I would end up doing. Thanks to everyone for their responses.
