Ok. If you're going to go the Mac route then read this carefully... I wanted a Mac and my wife knew this so for birthdays and Christmasses she gave me Apple gift cards. I found I had $1250 worth of gift cards in 7 cards so I went to buy a Mac. They would only accept a maximum of 4 cards despite the fact they already have all the money. I rang customer service and got nowhere. I have now filed a Better Business Bureau report against them. Naturally, this has left me with a very sour taste in my mouth and I have filed for a complete refund of all my gift cards. I can put the money toward several Windows systems for the same amount!
