    ok look, ive been thinking recently and been talking to people in apple stores. ive been trying just as hard as you to find out when the new macbooks are coming out.

    there are two rumors floating around: a new ipod touch, and new macbooks. the apple offer "buy a mac and get a free ipod touch" looks like their trying to clear their stock completely. when their stock of macbooks and ipod touchs are low, they will release new ipod touchs and macbooks. the offer ends on september 15, so thats when i estimate they are coming out?

    any thoughts?

    apple hasn't hesitated releasing products during the back to school promo in the past (take last year's aluminum imac, for example). further, i can't recall any instance where apple released a new mac immediately following the promotion. so do i think updates will come sep. 15th? no, not really.

    more time looking would have saved you all of the pain of thinking and researching. A quick search here would have pegged that date as soon as they announced the back to school promotion.:rolleyes:

    Exactly. Ah well, it's nice to see someone take on the role of Captain Obvious every once and a while. :p ;) :D

    Yes, in the future, save yourself some time by searching. :)

    Apple's upgrades are usually expensive, you can get cheaper RAM elsewhere like on the internet. That's about it though... good luck with your new MacBook. :)

    riiight...

    And that's a kickass machine. Please don't be one of those people that complains that when apple updates their products that yours becomes obsolete or that you deserve money back.

    But I'm jealous, dude. I'm getting a new macbook the second they are introduced!

    Hi First post!:cool:


    The offer ( I think) is for "Back to School" which I think only student (like me yay!) are allowed to apply for.

    Yep! Unless theres a completely different offer one, which is the same as this. Shame its not in the UK though, i asked an apple genius or whatever and they said it will be coming to thew UK Yay! Anyway a quote for a website.
    And thats from the "Do I qualify" part of this website.
