Okay so I've been trying very hard to save up enough money to get a new computer, which was going to be either a MacBook Pro or iMac. The deal is though, is that both are north of $2,000 which most "normal" people don't just have in cash form. I went to the Apple Store with $800 to put down towards a computer but apparently that didn't matter, I had to sign up for that Juniper Visa card which I knew I'd get declined for. I make more than enough to afford payments on a computer (among things I have to pay for) but I don't have any credit cards or the suchlike, and my only bank account has been closed for quite a while. Aside from owing the bank $80 and re-opening my account, there shouldn't be anything "bad" on my credit history, it's just that I probably don't have that much credit to begin with and I'm confused as how to get it satisfactory enough for Apple to approve me so I can buy one of their computers. I know there might not be much anyone here can help me with but I thought it was worth a try (and yes, Best Buy turned me down too which makes me sick since I buy almost everything from them). I can afford the computer I want. I have the money. But I don't have an 850 credit score so I get turned away? Apple needs some sort of special financing but hell, it is a COMPUTER, not a car. It would get it paid off real quick which is why I'm so upset.
