    I just ordered a macbook pro yesterday, I am going to refuse delivery and reorder with the promo. Normally the promo starts later in the UK. I have an iphone already but was planning of getting rid of it this year, so i could do with a touch.

    Oh damn, that sucks. They usually do the promo in September, nearer when I was thinking of upgrading. The way the promos have tied in before in the past, the UK's promo came out just after new iPods were released so unlike our fellow US folk, we didn't have to get "old" iPods.

    This definitely means that new iPods are due in the next couple of months. When they're out, this offer won't be available with them either and Apple will use this to clear up old stock. :(

    Woah!! That has to be a typo. I wonder if there's some way to make them honour it though... £190 rebate for a £107 item sounds fantastic! I'd probably buy a MacBook just to get the discount and sell it all for a profit! I'm sure its meant to £90.

    I noticed that error to. I'm not going to because they will screw you over, but could you print that today and purchase today and use those terms and conditions for the purchase?

    It is a typo - it's supposed to be £95 for the 8GB nano.

    Yeah I noticed that and have seen taht it has been corrected. I have also noted that there is an an abundance of macbook pros in every variant. Usually and indicator in the also 6 years I have been buying macs that some thing new is coming in.

    Also afte speaking to apple they advice me I can order a new ipod touch and still get the rebate providing it is within 21 days of the purchase of the macbook.

    Which is great as I am away this weekend. Also if nothing new comes out on june the 8th I will keep the machine. If it does I will order a new machine.
