    As for the other part of your question, August is typically a good time to buy since Apple often offers either back-to-school discounts or package deals (free iPod or printer with a Mac purchase, for example) around that time of year.

    The free printer with purchase of a Mac deal (up to $100) is going on now. I'm pretty sure it's year round, even though the deal going on now says through April 20th. The details are up on the Apple Store below the details of each of the computers.

    When I got my new MBP last October, there was also a free printer offer and the rebate check was sent surprisingly quick, about a week!
