Hi, I'm going to be a freshman in college in September and would like to buy a Macbook, but I need help figuring out when is the best time to buy it. These are the factors that are making my decision difficult: 1) Free printer offer ($100 rebate on a printer) ends July 21 (a.k.a. this Monday!). 2) According to the Buyer's Guide here, the iPod touch (which comes free with a Macbook for college) should update soon. 3) The free iPod touch offer ends September 15. 4) Some sources (http://www.macrumors.com/2008/07/18/apple-prepping-for-notebook-refresh/, etc) say the the next Macbook should be coming back somewhere in the next couple of months. So, my options are 1) Buy the MB before Monday and get a free printer, a free, non-updated iPod touch, and a non-updated MB. 2) Wait until the iPod touch is updated, but then not get the free printer. 3) Wait until the iPod touch and the MB are updated, but this may very well not happen until after I start classes, which would not be ideal (I start classes September 2). Another concern: does anyone know whether Apple tends to wait until their offers are over before they release their new products? In other words, is it a likely possibility that they will purposely release the new MB after the free iPod touch offer is over (Sept 15)? And the last thing to think about: is it more worth it to wait until the MB comes out and not get the free iPod, or to get the non-updated MB along with the iPod touch? Thanks a lot for all your help in advance!
