    As I'm sure you all know, the apple back to school deal gets you a free ipod touch or nano. While it may be just a good marketing tactic, I have a hard time believing that they are not attempting to get rid of a) computers or b) ipods due to a possible upgrade soon. Thoughts?

    OF COURSE THEY ARE.

    They do this to clear out iPods so that the new ones can be released in SeptiPodber.

    There will be new laptops in July once a sufficient number of the current ones are out of their hands.

    of course there will be an update before school starts, and the back to school special will continue after the update. thats they way i bought mine last year, and i'm selling my last year's model and picking up a new one this year for about 50 bucks more than i'm selling last year's for (!). factor in selling the ipod touch, and i'll be up like a hundred bucks.
