how do i convince my parents to buy me a macbook for christmas? i mean, my mom just bought a puppy and i would feel bad asking for anything expensive for the holidays. My mom loves macs and has an imac, but i only see her on weekends. And my dad hates macs. My mom only likes to buy me gifts she could see me enjoy, and a macbook i would use during the week. So... how do i go about this?
