I'm going back to school in September, and have decided to get a Macbook. I already have an iMac at home, but I want something for when I'm in lectures and doing my practicum. I'm getting the 2.4Ghz unibody model, along with a discounted MobileMe membership, which I will use to renew my current membership when it expires in December (I have confirmed with Apple that I can do this). I've decided not to wait until Snow Leopard comes out, since I can get it I was speaking with a couple different Apple reps who noted that because the value of the Canadian dollar has gone down, the next hardware boost will probably see prices raised. Since the CDN $ is down ~20% from it's peak, I could end up paying another $150 more. Does this sound realistic to anyone here? I know that Apple usually has a deal where you get an iPod when you buy a Macbook. Does this only apply to students? I ask because my wife's company has a discount with Apple that is better than the student discount. I already have an iPhone, my wife has an iPod touch so there'd be no point in waiting for the promo and paying a bit more to get an iPod that I frankly don't need. What are your opinions?
