So the 13" MBP retails for $1200. With an education discount and selling the ipod touch for ~$200, that brings it to $900. I know Macs hold their value pretty well, but can anyone make a guesstimate as to the resale value in a year, with and without Applecare? Background: I have this great idea to use the 0% financing for a year with the credit card to charge the MBP, and then I'll learn Mac/iPhone programming, get a job, and pay for the computer... in a year . I know it sounds like an awful plan, but if the resale value is $800 or something, then there's always that escape route and essentially I got to use a MBP for a year for $100!
