long time lurker first time post-er: I thought this would be a good spot for my question/comment. I am a teacher so keep this in mind as you read. I am doing basic functions on the MB, heaviest work is using imovie. Would you buy the just posted refurb (here) or the new macbook? I can wait until the BTS promotion begins. As many have noted, the previous macbook simply seems to be sitting in the refurbished section of apple.com There it is $759. The newer version is $949 for me (boo, not $899!). The newer generation doesn't seem worth the extra money to me. I don't need the extra battery life and the processor and video don't seem necessary for what I do. I called my local apple store and they let me know that yes if I buy in the back-to-school time frame they will give me the freebies (assuming that happens). I had thought about getting an ipod touch already, but would prefer the 32gig to the 8gig (assuming they give the 8gig FAR). . Does any one recall if they did discounts on the 32 or 64 gig touches for the BTS promotion? If i buy the refurb now and save $190 (plus smaller amount of tax on total purchase price) that should be plenty to get me a touch from a re-seller this summer, correct? thanks for your advice in advance.
