    How long do you guys think the free iPod deal will last? I just bought an iMac this year, and I wanted to get a MacBook sometime before the end of the school year next year so I can still get the student discount (I graduate from college next year), but if I can get another iPod for free, that would be even better. Only problem is that I really don't need a laptop or iPod yet, so I was just going to wait till at least second semester. Maybe around then, the second revision of the MacBook will be out. But then if the free iPod deal is gone, I lose that offer. So should I wait and see how long the free iPod offer will last? Or just get the MacBook the first semester while I know I can get the iPod?

    I hope the new desktops come out before then. In addition to the student discount that would make for a great deal.

    Hmm... I looked at that page before, but I guess I didn't look very close. Thanks.

    So, I guess my question now is, what would you do? I already have a new iMac, plus I have a Dell Laptop that's working fine for checking email, chatting, internet, etc. for on the go, which is really all I would probably use the MacBook for. I also already have an iPod (4G click wheel, non color screen, 20 GB). But the laptop is 3 years old, and I'd like to get one of the new color iPod nanos or maybe a discounted video iPod. But like I said, I obviously don't need these things right now, and what I have now will last me the year. But it's hard to pass up a deal like this when its on things I would need in a few months anyways.
