    How about a poll answer for
    "I got one, but not right after the expo."

    The Apple Learn and Earn system is for Employees of Apple and members of the Apple Channel (Other Disbrutors, resellers and contractors for Apple)

    This is an extract about the Learn and Earn system

    Agreed - this is a skewed poll, completely ignores those of us who didn't rush out and get it immediately. The choices boil down to "I got it for free", "I didn't get it" and "I'm a drooling zealot who will give Apple however much they ask".

    What about those of us who waited to see which way the wind was blowing, evaluated the likelihood of price reductions, etc. I upgraded to it sometime during August, my wife upgraded hers when they did the "extended until 30th Sept next year" thing. Both of us will will revisit our decisions next September, both of us have a gut feeling that Apple's going to offer another limited time $49 deal next year if they've not just made that the standard price by then :D
