    Holy fuck, this thing cannot ship fast enough. Booted up windows, started AIm, that froze, started IE, that froze, restarted and went to apple.com and ordered the 12 inch pb I had my eye on:wiggle::wiggle::wiggle::):):)

    nah, well my first that is my own, my family's had a few in the past, I forced em to switch to pc so I could play games when I was a freshman in HS, I'm going off to college next fall and don't give a shit about games anymore.

    I don't really care. I have to order it because i'm leaving for vacation on the 30th. I don't want to have to wait until AFTER vacation to use it.

    I'm already saving an additional $156 ontop of the student discount... so if they're just throwing something extra in, I wont care.

    However, they'll probably end up getting an even faster model out and i'll be pissed :mad:

    I guess I don't HAVE to have it now... but I wanted to be able to use it on vacation.

    I've just been waiting so long and now that I finally have the money to buy one... these rumors start floating and I don't want to wait another week :o

    It would help if you just told us what you've heard. Maybe if you did that we wouldn't be so egar to buy now :hsd:

    can you at least give a hint? :x:

    shit, I guess I'll wait... but it better be worth it :squint: :o

    Maybe you can answer this though... in the past, when new models have been released, have the prices generally gone up for hte new models? Or do they just give them the same price as the models they're replacing?

    //edit:
    and, is this just for the student store or for everything?

    So this educational thing is going to be something different from the traditional Cram and Jam offer that Apple does? It'd be really attractive if it worked along with the Cram and Jam offer...

    Basically, if you buy a new Apple computer, you get a $200 rebate on any iPod. Combine that with the educational discount, and you get an iPod for $70. Apple has done this in the past so I was expecting them to do it this coming fall as well.

    Also, you can a free printer with the deal, or at the very least, you could last year. I think it was $70 with a $70 rebate. I'm not sure if this was part of the Cram and Jam offers in the past :dunno:

    I'm waiting for that deal to start as well as any possible changes to the Powerbooks before I go ahead and get a new computer :)

    Fucking hell... I'm so confused right now on what to do :wtc:

    Here's my delima:
    I leave for Florida on the 30th. I wanted to have my Powerbook in my posession before I left so I could transfer all my files, etc onto the powerbook so I could use it during vacation.

    Now this new info comes along and if I wait, I wont be able to get the laptop in time for vacation :wtc: :run:

    Also, I've already paid for the ADC membership, so if this gift applies only to the Student Discount, then it needs to be worth more than $156 for it to even concern me.

    However.... if there's more to this than just a gift, I'll feel like a fucking moran for buying the powerbook now and then a week later a newer model comes out for the same price. :wtc:

    Formz, do you think your boss will disclose more info to you as he learns more?
