    I'm heading off to school this fall and I am going to buy a new Macbook, the $1300 one ($1200 with my school discount) and I'm wondering if they will update it soon or if it will stay the same model through the summer. My brother's a computer guy and says that Apple usually updates their stuff in order of iMac, Macbook Pro then Macbook, but I found on google news that the Macbooks already have been updated, just a few weeks ago. Is that true? I just don't want to buy it then within a few days see them updated and I miss out on free updated stuff.

    The MacBook was just updated last month, so you're good on the hardware side.

    They are updating the OS in a few months, though if you want the computer now it's probably not worth waiting for.

    What kind of software do you plan to use on the MacBook?

    Remember, they are now running the promotion where you can also get an iPod Nano for free, or $199.00 towards a higher level iPods (not the iPhone though). With the money you saved there you can get Leopard when it comes out :D

    I plan on paying $50 and getting a 30G iPod with it. What do you mean by software, Nerroth? Whatever comes with it I guess that's all I can think of, my brother said there are some programs he might put on there, I'm not sure what though, OS X maybe? Is that standard?

    OS X is standard, I think he meant what do you intend to do with the Macbook? Graphics? Music?
