    Hey guys, I will be buying a MacBook pro this summer, probably in the back to school event!

    I saw that apple can finance you with a Barclay visa card? Has anyone done this method? - they offer 6, and 12 months of no interest. I will be able to have the cash to pay it off by the end of the summer.

    If anyone can give me any advice I'd appreciate it! Thanks

    You can finance the machine through the barclay financing. The basic terms are its 0% interest for 12 months. After that your interest rate is based on your credit score and that rate applies, and interest is calculated on the original purchase amount. Its not a bad deal if your sure you can pay it off before the 12 months otherwise you'll accumulate hundreds of dollars in interest.

    Do it as long as you pay it off before the interest hits.

    I purchased my iMac June of last year using this option and the process was quick and painless and I have had no issues with the company. As the others have stated, make sure you pay it off before it expires or else you will pay all the accrued interest.

    Buy it outright at the end of the summer then.
