    Hey folks! I just think Apple has made a "wonderful" timing for this promo.

    Here's the deal:

    The Buy a Mac, get a free ipod nano promo ends at Sep 16. If you buy a mac between Sep 10 - 16, then congratulations, you're eligible for the rebate.

    And, if you accidentally bought a macbook pro between Sep 10 - 16, again, due to the shortage of macbook pro, Apple (very likely) shipped your macbook near or even after Oct 1st. So, you earned another $110 (you still have to pay $9.95, right?).

    Is there anyone has the experience like this?

    Yeah. I can go one better. Had my Powerbook stolen in August. Insured new for old. Took AGES for the insurance so couldn't order til Oct 3rd.

    So I got a free nano (UK edu) and leopard for £5.95. Plus a much faster laptop for the £150 odd excess.

    Clouds and silver linings come to mind.

    I think you can only get it at the same time as your Mac.

    Not sure though.

    Hm, not sure of the conversion but I think I spent $240 instead of $250 on applecare due to the education discount. Unless the exchange rate has gone through the roof, sounds like I could have haggled for a better deal. :eek:
