    Hey im wondering if i should order my MBP tonight to cash in on the student deal or if its wiser to order after the event if there could be a possible price drop? I dont need an iPod touch and I doubt its resale value even when new would be high after the 9th

    There is not going to be a price update and the next likely update is early next year. The EDU pricing never goes away, the only real special time to buy is during the summer when you take advantage of the Back To School promotion, which has sensed passed.

    since passed?

    Anyway, take a look at refurbs in the "regular" store. They've got a ton of the unibodies in now and savings are 15-20% off new. They even come with the same warranty as new.

    today is the last day you can do the ipod mail in rebate and then if you wanted sell it for up to $175 id say might be the top value you could get...

    there will be no new MBP updates before march of 2010

    now is as good a time to buy as any

    but techound is right, if you dont want the ipod... go refurb... save some cash and use it for booz at school
