I study/research at Boston University and, as I made a post about before, I really don't want to just spill $2000+ on the apple store website. It's hard on the bank account, and using credit is sketchy with that odd bank on the site. Instead I took my business elsewhere, The Boston University "University Computers" store allows students to build computers to order, and simply put down 10%, and pay the rest when it arrives. I ordered: 1.67 512mb 100gb 7200rpm I will order: 2X 1GB memory from Crucial....soon. This is new to me. But it brings me to a question for future purchases: Can you make BTO at the apple store? Do they make you put money down?
