Sorry! You've stumbled onto another one of those buy now or wait posts! I don't want to bore you guys with my indecision, but I had a question regarding a lot of the back to school deals people are talking about. I'm interested in getting a unibody probably 2.4. I see them for sale now refurb 1299. I've heard though that apple will have in june the buy a mac get a free ipod. I have a 1g Ipod touch and don't really need another. My question is... will the refurb price drop at all during this time? I haven't paid attention to previous years. My second question is this: is there a grace period for apple? Like if I buy my MB and the next day they are upgraded, does mac allow me to exchange? I'm BRAND NEW to macs. I've been curious about them for a while and made a hackingtosh on my netbook but find it too slow and really problematic to connect to wifi networks etc. I'm a Grad student in molecular biology and everyone around me seems to use them! I really don't need another laptop. I have a work laptop, my home desktop and a small netbook to take to and from work... BUT ITS JUST SO SHINY! Anyway, Let me know what you guys think. --Marcelo P.S. what kind of employee discount does apple offer? a good friend of mine works at a store but I don't know if I should bug him about it.
