I plan on going in the morning to purchase a Macbook Pro 17, but I was wondering if the apple store took cash. Has anyone paid with cash before? Also is there any conflicts with using a student discount and do I just need to show them my student I.D. to get the discount? I just received the funds in the form of a check, and I can either cash the check or put it into my bank account. (no credit cards) The problem with putting it into my bank account is that the money is not accessible for 24 hours... meaning I have to wait another day (been waiting for 3 months) and Its also a hassle to meet with the accounting dept to get my daily spending limit raised to 2500$, which means I have to wait another 24 hours, and since the bank isn't open on Saturdays, I would have to actually wait 72 hours... Long story short, I wanna pay cash and get the computer same day.
