Any other students slightly annoyed that, now after everyone has bought there new macbooks ready for university in the UK, that they have now started the back to school promotion to get a free nano, i ordered my macbook about 3 weeks ago, it came 2 weeks ago, and now i think, heck, i could of had one of them nice new nanos for free.
The macbook has worked brilliantly so far though, no hiccups at all, very powerful and fast and being a switcher i love it, but i am slightly annoyed at apple. I already started back at university and now they release the promotion not happy

You should call them and ask about it. It isn't out of realm of possibility that they'll give you one anyway.

I would but they already gave me £50 back because the delivery company lost one of my parcels (iwork pack) so i think id be fighting a lost cause seen as i asked for a ipod in compensation when that happened.

You have no idea. Back in april I ordered my macbook pro, 2 weeks wait, a week into waiting a new version of the same model was released that would DOUBLE the memory of the graphics card, enhanced trackpad features, and probably some other stuff. This was 1 week after I ordered.

I know its not related, but the moral of the story is, we always get screwed.

Buuut, the computer is almost flawless, no complaints here; just annoyed with unluckiness.

ya that is pretty unlucky my friend. Its been all over the apple store in the states, you should see if you can get on the phone with a customer service rep in the US and see if you can't finagle your way in to getting yourself a nano.

I bought my macbook pro from an authorized apple retailer( not the actual apple store itself) and didn't receive one either, come to think of do you all think there is a leg for me to stand on. Or does the apple store only offer this combo?

LOL

Apologies for sounding pompous but having been heavily involved in the recruitment process in the UK public sector, I have seen many a post-graduate be dismissed out of hand because of these particular mistakes when applying for certain jobs.

It appears to show lack of attention to detail, which is critical to some positions. There/their and of/have are increasingly common and much of the blame must go to internet forums, in my opinion.

Again, sorry for sounding grumpy, I didn’t mean to cause offence . I’ll try to get out of the right side of bed tomorrow!

PS
Before anyone pulls me up on my grammar etc., I haven't even got a G.C.E. in English LOL

Well I just bought my Macbook on saturday and they told me the back to school promotion doesn't include the new ipods (that sucks) so I copped myself the 8GB Touch. I don't mind that it's last generation(Like I'm going to miss some volume buttons), Verify with them it would propably be with the old nanos.
