So, my current computer is biting the dust, and ive decided on getting one of the new macbooks (2.4, with 4gb ram). I dont have enough money to pay for it myself (why is skiing so expensive?), and my parents are in a poor financial situation as well, and cant help. My grandfather has said he will do what he can to help pay for my education, and i will being going to college next, which is what this laptop is intended for. I want to ask him to pay for it, and i will pay him back in the summer when i get my job back. The issue is that my grandfather has difficultly understanding things (he made us return his netflix gift subscription since it requires him to make a password), and may not see the need for a nice computer.'
How should i go about asking him for help, he lives in fl and i live in maine. this will be via phone.
your help is appreciated.
