Okay so this is a multiple part posting, I hate posting a ton of crap in individual threads that pertain to the same subject. The september 9th event is supposed to be just a media event, right? I have no real worries of buying my iMac and then it getting updated there, do I? I am looking at a refurb right now, i've only heard good things about them. Does anyone have any horror stories? And finally, I know that apple is doing their back to school crap. Do you think I would be better off waiting a week or so to get the extra money and buy a brand new iMac with an iPod touch (just to turn around and sell the itouch)?
