Hi all, Have finally decided to upgrade from my beloved but aging PIII 500, and switch to Mac into the bargain. After much deliberation, I decided on the 12'' iBook since I can't justify the extra AUD$800 for the 12'' pBook, as awesome as that little machine is. The iBook will serve my needs for the next few years anyway. The question is, would I be able to get a better deal if I hold off until after Christmas? Are there likely to be any specials or discounts available then (from either apple.com.au or a retailer such as nextbyte.com.au)? And if so, would they operate on top of an edu discount, or is that pretty much the best deal I'll be able to get? Any input would be much appreciated. cas.
