No. They would have to have their own account. Accounts are linked to one CC.
One way to do it would be to send you a gift card that would pay for the sub and you can apply to your account.

I have Mojave hence not getting the 16” which only ships with Catalina. The entire office would need major software upgrades with Catalina and we weren’t ready to roll that out in this quarter.

When you call someone a predator for *checks notes* buying a house to live in (amongst other things) and don’t apologize when called out, I don’t feel inclined to send 30K+ in business a year your way.

How much did that cost, if you don't mind me asking?

Also does it have one of those stupidly fast SSDs that they have nowadays?

I'm thinking of upgrading soon, but it's a bit out of my price range.

Yes they are stupidly fast NVMe drives.

I get away with 8 gigs of RAM despite a rather heavy application use as the drive is so quick. Even with 2 x 4k screens running and a dozen or more applications...smooth

Don't overlook the 13" if you don't need the GPU.

It’s leased so I’m not sure what our deal is but my configuration with a 1TB SSD and 32GB ram 8core I9 would run about 3600$CDN (new not refurb)

Why ever would I apologize for a stance I've had for decades?
You clearly know how I feel about the whole housing casino, especially in Toronto.
You want to offer up apologetics and I'm not buying it.
That you are holding this "grudge" shows perhaps that it's tender topic.

Keep feeding the housing slot machine and wasting money not buying from better sources. Real clever that.
You not saving money on necessary work gear out of some high dudgeon surely qualifies as shooting oneself in the foot. :roll: :coffee:

On the off-chance it's an opinion you hold that you've mistaken for God's own truth.

It's an informed opinion Cito, based on some decent foundation of facts that predation in housing is damaging to society.
We see that damage playing out all over the first world as a have/have not class structure develops, not in the least based on merit.
..participating in the gamble is no different than supporting a casino habit.
...deal with it.

Got anything to contribute to the topic?? ...nah just shit disturbing per usual pattern of your behavior.
You just can't help yourself can you?? :nono: fucking pathetic. :coffee:

Damaging to society? That's not an informed opinion, Macdoc. That's a political position you promote, because the better off society is, the more money you can make. You're a businessman, a purveyor of consumer electronics, not an altruist.
