I don't know of any way to lease a Mac. Maybe the OP could give us some details?

I know you can lease Dell computers from their business website. Basically you pay the full value over three years with no intrest or anything, but then you have to return the machine. A three year old dell won't have any resale value anyway, and it's easier on your budget. I've never done that kinda thing tho.

YES - you can lease a Mac - (i.e. rent it) through Apple - see the

"Find out how to get this product for £46.09 per month." text at the bottom when you configure your MAc? Follow the links and you get to:

If you are a professional user or a small business owner
, check out our commercial leasing options at http://store.applefinancial.co.uk/

You can upgrade during the lease and at the end of the lease you have the option to buy.

The large company I work for leases all the company computers on a 2 year schedule.

This is hardly economical for an individual user, but for a business, generating enough income to warrant the expense and the tax deductions, it's an option to consider.

you certainly DONT have to give it back at the end, you pay 2.5% of the market price at the time and its your for life.

i just ended my powerbook g4 17" lease after 2 years and paid them = £47.50 to keep it. the other option was to give them it back and have nothing......no brainer

you can lease on business store or regular store, and select your payment option to either MBNA Cunsumer financing (on regular store), or Apple Financial Services Business Financing (business store).

How much more do you end up paying by going this route?
