    Well I am buying a mac mini, and as a student I am getting an iTouch for free, should I wait for the new upgrade or it will be like the previous one, which got updated at September 9th so that we will miss it?

    Don't the new iPods usually come out after the back to school promotion ends? I can't remember the time line from last year.

    So wait... you question is should you buy now and get a free iPod Touch, or wait until they upgrade them (after the promo) and not get a free one?

    iPods are always updated in September. That's how it's been for years, and it won't be any different this year.

    And yes, they're updated after the back to school promo ends. It's either free iPod or latest iPod, basically.

    For questions like this I always check out:

    No-one outside of Apple will be able to give you better guidance, but remember - "past performance is no indication of future results" :D

    I guess that the idea is to offload all of the old stock with the promo before offering the new ipods.

    Regardless ... the Second Gen Touch is sweet.

    The back-to-school offer doesnt apply to the mac mini. In the past the new ipod models come out when the promotions end. Keep that in mind.

    In the rare cases when the promo ran at the same time as a new iPod release. Apple gave away their old stock of iPods in such promotions, not the latest generation. So, you will likely be out of luck regardless.

    Yup, if you're buying a Mac mini, you can't get the free iPod anyway so you might as well wait.

    You won't be able to get the 3g for free, so get the free 8gb 2g touch and sell it. When the 3g comes out, buy it :]

    Yeah, you only get a free ipod (up to $229) with and laptop or a iMac, not a mini.
