    I think I know the answer to this question, but I'm not completely sure.

    So I'll be purchasing a new Macbook Pro once the back to school promotion starts, so that means I'll be getting a free iPod touch with it, or at least a decent amount of money off an iPod touch when I buy the computer.

    My question is: The Back to School promotion usually runs from June to August and new iPods come out in September, correct? So there's no chance that I'll be able to score a newer version of the iPod touch with the back to school promotion, right?

    The Ivory Tower (I'm not coming down)
    Usually they even put some kind of clause in that explicitly forbids buying a brand-new iPod (if one is released before the end of the sale, which is extremely unlikely).

    The last 3 years the iPod Touch was released just after the BTS promotion expired. They probably do it on purpose, to clear stock of the "old" model.

    You know what works? Wal-Mart.

    1. Get the MBP and iTouch.
    2. Go to Wal-Mart and return it (claim that you got it as a gift and don't want it).
    3. When the new one comes out, get the new one from Wal-Mart.

    I dunno if it'll work with the Apple Store.

    That's actually a pretty good idea. That or eBay...

    I haven't seen anything to completely convince me that the 4th generation iPod touch would be worth the wait/update.

    I sold my old touch and am living on a classic. 4 months without one may be a long time...

    Walmart doesn't even sell Macs. And that definitely won't work.
