Since it’s summer, that means that Apple’s gearing up to gear up students.
So that means a free iPod Touch with any qualifying Mac. This is convenient because I’m considering the purchase of a qualifying Mac before September. I’m thinking a 24″ iMac for the photo editing and video editing that I’ve always been meaning to do, but never really got around to because of how hot(*) the MacBook Pro gets. Plus, Apple hardware for a decent price to performance ratio. Not exactly on par with what I could build myself, but until Apple lets the OS be installed anywhere, it’s probably the best bet. And it saves my laptop from an early firey doom.
Also convenient is the fact that the WWDC is in a week or so and I can bide my time to see what’s coming down the pike from Apple. Hopefully something interesting.
And not too expensive.
(*) For those of you playing the home game, the answer is: VERY HOT.
