I was wanting to buy a macbook pro 15 in order to get the student discount (free ipod) by Sept 8. But now I realize that they're going to update the ipods so I'd be getting something old. However, I've been wanting to try the shuffle, so that would be a good time to get it. But anyway, isn't it possible that the will refresh the macbook pro in some way, however minor (more speed, memory, etc...). Does anyone think it's actually worthwhile to wait until next week?
