With weeks to go until a refresh, all of the "should I buy macbook now or no" will drive me crazy. Also, everyone says the same answers to the question. Conclusion: If you are a student or teacher: 1) Do you want a free ipod Touch? BUY MAC NOW 2) Do you need a mac badly? BUY MAC NOW 3) Do you not want free ipod Touch and don't need mac badly? DONT BUY MAC NOW If you are not a student or teacher: 1) Do you need a mac badly? BUY MAC NOW 2) Do you not need mac badly? DONT BUY MAC NOW and then for all the people who go "isn't ipod touch going to be updated..i dont know if I want it free now" ITS FREE. Thats the whole point of having the special. You cant expect to get a brand new refreshed ipod touch for free. So because its free, you have to put up with knowing there will be a newer model out there. If this is your first ipod touch, just enjoy it. Since its free, you can buy a newer one next year or something.
