    I SWEAR that someone here had thought of this idea.

    Damned if I could remember their name, though.

    Thanks for the heads up, BlueDjinn!  We published a short mention of the deal this morning.

    That’s all the incentive I need.  I’ll be buying one.

    I was planning on getting a SuperDrive iMac & an iPod anyway;  this makes the whole thing a wash, price-wise.

    But ... 5gig?  Or 10?

    I would have bought with out the incentive or not. I plan to upgrade to a new pro system this summer.

    Well since I already have one (5 gig)  I dont really need another one, My wife is wanting one so it would be nice to get another, but since Im still pretty happy with my Cube, I dont need another Mac.  This is all so typical of Apple, listen to what the people want and then give it to them, But under their terms, and our cash.

    GEEZ, I just bought an iMac (and another for a friend too).  Now this.  I would’ve also picked up an iPod if this offer had been available.  How about making the offer retroactive a couple weeks so I can buy an iPod???

    Well, the latest iMac just went up a hundred bucks, so it’s a wash if you buy into this “deal” with the iPod.  I love my iPod, BTW, and recommend it to anyone who loves music and likes to travel with all your favorites.  A friend has the newest one (10 gigs) - and is ecstatic with its capabilities.  Lucky guy was able to use all my music and playlists - beautifully organized!  It can also store addresses of contacts and has an equalizer - what a deal!

    My oops - the 5 gig iPod has the same capabilities as the 10 gig (except, of course, not as much storage), if you download the software, which, if I have been correctly informed, is free! How ‘bout that?!

    You’re right, pamelatc, I downloaded Apple’s software from their site some time ago, and it gives me the same functions as the newer iPod models.
    Basically, it’s just a software update.

    And, yes, it’s totally free. Enjoy!

    Well I was very excited to read about this promotion, because I’m considering a new Mac (because of the iPod), and I had seen the Airport promo recently (and I wasn’t going to buy an iBook without Airport).

    But then I logged onto Apple Australia’s website, and found it is not being offered in Australia!! Nor is the Airport promo either !! So basically my set-up is going to cost $AUD 400 more !! Not bloody good enough Apple !! Treat us equally over here or bugger off !!
