    Usually it starts around may 27th, but this year still no info. Anybody has any idea about when they will start?
    Thanks

    Sooooo....

    Based on your links no one knows. Or am I just pointing out the obvious for all of those who didn't read all of the links?

    Yes, it's quite obvious that, no matter how many threads are created on this topic, the bottom line is no one knows.

    completely agreed

    Edit************

    OP - sorry for hijacking the post, but for what it is worth, I would probably give it a few weeks.

    Like the info found in most of the links that GGJ posted, the BTS special will likely not end until late August (I personally bought my iMac back in 2008 on the same promotion with a free iPod Touch around the end of August). Unless you have an immediate need for a new mac right this second, I bet you will be alright waiting a while to see what apple has up their sleeve after dealing with the release of a new OS, iCloud, iOS, and *OMG* maybe a phone this summer( Wouldn't hold your breath on the phone either).

    Just my 2 cents.

    Regards.

    I'd bet Apple is waiting to release new Sandy Bridge-based MBA's/MB's before starting the promotion... hopefully next Tuesday?

    I don't reckon that it's going to happen this year. It seems way later than normal!

    This of course is based on no solid intel!
