The Apple Store will now let you buy stuff online with PayPal in the US and the UK. Along with the new payment option, Apple is also promoting PayPal Credit, which lets you pay for that shiny new MacBook in interest-free monthly instalments, rather than having to sell a kidney upfront. [re/code]
Nothing wrong with options.
I paid for my current (early 2011) MBP - with the "high res" matte screen, etc - in cash at the Apple Store. All said it was somewhere above $2600 in bills. The woman looked at me like I was Johnny Depp in Blow. I'd never seen so much disapproval towards a guy spending the gist of his bonus on a laptop...until I got home.
The Macbook outlived that relationship by years.
