Pretty much decided on the 13" CD2. Microcenter has a deal where right now they are $999 brand new. I figure I can get applecare on amazon for $200 (vs. $250 from apple). Now just can't decide when to buy. It'll be a birthday present, so it'll be purchased before Sept. 1st. Just not sure if I should buy now, or wait incase there are any announcements about iLife '11. Just saw the post though today about the rumored iPod event now mid Sept.....so maybe not worth it anymore to wait and I should just buy now? Just wanted to see what you all think. Thanks!!!
