Default Alteritive way to press apples?

I am going to moving into an apartment soon. I was wondering/hoping someone knew of a good cheap and compact way to press apples? Thank you

I don't know about the press it self, but I did learn a way to aid pressing, you'll get more from the squeeze. Get a NEW garbage disposal, available in many sizes/prices, they are very compact and make a great puree to squeeze! Keep the unit CLEAN and sanitized before and after use, as with all your equipment. Or you can let your local fruit farm do the pressing for you. That's the way I roll. I get pasteurized and non preserved sweet apple cider. I probably pay more, about 37.50 for 5 gallons, but BOY does it taste great!

I've used a counter-top juicer before with good success. 80% juice yield by weight for apples. Don't recall the exact model, but it was something like this:
