I am really excited for this new year. I'm going to college next fall, and with Apple's last MacWorld, it should be big. Now, here's the deal. I want to buy an Apple laptop for college, as I will be majoring in music. I know for a fact that JUST IN CASE, I would like firewire on a laptop. This opens up to the MBP, but the price is very high. I would love to go refurbished for a MBP in JUNE, so by the newer refresh, this means I will be just in time for a cheaper notebook and the iPod promo. My questions are listed here. 1. If I buy a refurbished MBP, do I still qualify for the iPod Promo? (I will be selling the iPod when I get it and buy a 3rd generation iPod Touch) 2. How much cheaper (by fact of previous models), are the baseline refurb MBPs? 3. Is it smart I buy a MBP for college just for firewire and larger screen, as I will be doing music? Thank you all very much for the consideration. I was about to buy an iPod Touch this week when I thought about it and came here to see MacWorld and the endless possibilities.
