    Hi,

    Having done my research on what computer to buy for my mini personal music studio, I am now dead set on buying a Macbook pro 15" via apple education online (on campus)

    Does anyone know if it is possible for a 21 year old to buy this through the education site using a finance option on a visa debit card, and pay it off on monthly instalments?

    I am guaranteed to have have enough coming in to make all the repayments within the course of 9-12months, Id rather keep on track of this myself than have to get my parents involved in paying it for me ><

    Any advice would be appreciated :)

    Don't finance. You end up paying way more than the machine is worth and you're most likely still paying for it when it is outdated. Ask your parents for an interest-free loan and you're much better off.
