    my guess is that you dont have good enough credit...same for the "apple loan" you need good credit to do this. if you DO have good credit, then try calling them up...

    It says we are unable to authorize your transaction or something like that. All that it ask is for your last 4 digits of your ssn and your birthday.

    Ya the company Bill Me Later runs a little credit check because they have to have some sort of evidence that you will pay them back.

    Get a Juniper Visa card. They have interest-free financing for 3 months for any Apple purchase. Be careful though, they're very conservative about their credit lines...my mom has a credit score upwards of 720 and she only got a $3k credit limit.

    I sold some furniture to buy my Mac. "Blah blah blah," they said. So, the furniture wasn't "mine" -- do they have Macbooks? I didn't think so.
