    Have there been any rumors about when the back to school promo will start this year? I've held out on buying an iMac for the kids for a couple months just in case they were refreshed at WWDC. Now I have to decide if it's worth holding out yet another month or two for the back to school promo.

    I tried researching a bit and this is what I could determine as the starting dates each year. Guessing we're looking at early to mid-july?

    I have not heard anything but it is still early. Plus, their Back to School deals have been pretty weak in the past, it might be worth just trying to find a good deal on an iMac.

    Have checked out Apple's refurbished iMac site?

    If you don't see what you are looking for, keep checking the page, as they refurbished models come and go often. If you see one you like, you got to jump on it quick.

    If lack of money is an issue perhaps setting up a gofundme to help defray the costs. Some people have used gofundme to raise money for computers and tablets.

    Some beats headphones or a gift card in the last few years, as you say not worth the wait. Apple refurb is your best bet for fully apple certified at a lower price.

    I have to say the Beats headphones last year was nice, I used it for a christmas present :D

    If any promotion is due out, we'll see it next month. I beleive last year it came out later then it had previously, I wonder if apple is looking to drop this promo.
