Wait or buy a nano?

Apple has that special going - buy a mac and get a free nano. I'm looking for opinions on if I should take the offer or wait on an upgraded macbook and nano. I don't need either one tomorrow - but it does sound like a good deal.

If you buy before mid-July you get $100 back on a printer too.

Thanks for your thoughts.

If you think that you'd be happy with the macbook, and if the nano's capacity sounds right for you then go for it, its a good deal. If you dont need it now and think that the nanos capacity is too small then wait.

Deals in my view preceed line revamps.So if it works for you get it, but if you need more capacity or are hanging for new features wait.

That's often true. You can also take advantage of the deal though and then turn around and sell the thing on eBay and put the money you make towards the new one when it does come out.
