    Jim doesn't have a job, he claims job-seekers allowance which allows him to put some money aside every month. After a couple of months Jim buys a MacBook.

    Is Jim rich?

    MacBooks are rip offs anyways. My sister got some money off for hers whilst at university due to a grant but she still forked out £500 plus out of her own money.

    Not true. I come from a single-income family on under £20k a year, 3 years of careful saving and I own a MacBook Air, although admittedly it was 70% off from a resell site.

    No, many stores have a 'buy now, pay later' option that is interest free. Argos and Littlewoods, for example.

    Either way, with time, Jim would be able to buy a MacBook.
