Walmart does not sell Apple Laptops, I believe BestBuy is the only B&M because apple has full control over the staff that sells Apple.
SMS, Have you thought about used, or even refurbished? I know it kinda sucks to feel like you're getting someone's leftovers, but I know so many people that sell off laptops well before they're used up. Besides I can't think of anything that would require the newest hardware so a used laptop with an upgrade to Snow Leopard would probably work great for you, and save money. Then when you graduate go balls to the walls on new Apple gear.
But if you're not into that, I wouldn't waste the time on trying to get a CapOne just for the $100. Especially if you can buy it at Bestbuy.com where both the Discover and Chase will give you a nice bonus. I personally thing=k if you were going to risk a hard pull you should go for a CLI on the Discover and just explain that you want to buy a Macbook. I'm sure they'd give you the CLI knowing that they might get some money from the interest.
Also see what Apple Financing looks like.
